Framing an execution
- Main contributor
In the 1990s, Mumia Abu-Jamal, an African American journalist on death row, became a symbol of the inequities in the United States judicial system. This film examines how ABC reporter Sam Donaldson's framing of Abu-Jamal's case stands up to the available facts and how it measures up to basic journalistic standards of fairness, balance, and accuracy.
