Police in Arkansas have destroyed records detailing the investigation into sexual abuse allegations against TLC's 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar. "The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record," Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis said Friday. "As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned this report doesn't exist."

The newest Frontline documentary focuses on how the controversial film Zero Dark Thirty was much too concerned with pushing the "CIA version of history" - justifying torture - as opposed to what actually happened. ... [The documentary] goes through exactly how Hollywood became, in the words of one journalist, "easy marks" for the CIA to put one over on. The documentary even gets some words from Senator Dianne Feinstein, who says, "I walked out of Zero Dark Thirty, candidly. We were having a showing and I got into it about 15, 20 minutes and left. I couldn't handle it. Because it's so false." read more
