In 2017, Blaze Bernstein, a talented and beloved young gay man, returned home to California to visit his family for the holidays and vanished into thin air. Or so it seemed. Our Party People have been asking us to visit this shocking case for some time, so Christopher and Eric made it the focus of this True Crime TV Club, serving up episode 45 of season 43 of the series 48 HOURS, entitled “In The Name of Hate”. This vicious hate crime seems open and shut. But Christopher and Eric debate whether or not the producers fully illuminated the terrible events that lead to Blaze’s murder, or descended into conspiratorial fearmongering to support their own narrative. In the end, did 48 HOURS focus enough on the real killer? Christopher and Eric have opinions, as always.
