Welcome to the House of Crouse. “If it bleeds it leads,” is an accepted mantra around newsrooms these days but back in 1974 it was a new, controversial idea.

She was particularly disdainful of the idea until she became the poster child for news sensationalism by announcing to her viewers, “In keeping with WZRB’s policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see complete coverage of an attempted suicide,” before putting a gun to her head and pulling the trigger. Rebecca Hall stops by the HoC to discuss the film and the life of Christine Chubbuck.
