Returning guest Robert Rosen
(Nowhere Man) penned an essay last year discussing a phenomenon
called "catch-and-kill," wherein the powerful who wish to keep
unflattering stories from reaching the public exert pressure and
influence to keep media companies from publishing them. In the
instances he wrote about, a pair of book projects detailing life at
the Dakota during John Lennon's final five years were suppressed,
for no apparent reason beyond the estate wishing to keep any
variance from the narrative they have been controlling for decades
to be challenged in any way. This led to a discussion on the why
and the how these stories are being kept hidden, despite the
legitimacy of the narrators.
