Survivor’s Richard Hatch ISO Bob Woodward…


Can’t believe I’m taking 5 minutes from closing the latest issue of the magazine on this but, stop the presses, writing from the Federal Correctional Institute in Morgantown, West Virginia, Survivor winner Richard Hatch demands that journalists take up his cause:

“No investigative journalism has yet confronted the blatant abuses of power, bigotry-driven enmity, nor the numerous pitfalls of our current legal system to which I have been subjected.”

And not just for his sake:

“I would no more apologize for my winning tactics on “Survivor” than a football player might apologize for his touchdown. Regardless, the issue of innocent people in jail should be addressed more seriously.”

Booyah!
