20/20 on Matthew Shepard
GLAAD and the Shepard family have published a guide with "10 questions" about the 20/20 episode rehashing the Shepard murder. I don't watch TV, most of it is trash as far as I am concerned. It saddens me that 20/20 would air this piece, give the murderers this soapbox, when the plea agreement - which took the death penalty out of the sentencing picture - specifically prohibits them from discussing the murder with the press. Brutally murder a young man and rub the family's face in it, very nice going. ABC, this is not your finest moment.
