Storyline

As investigative news shows and daytime talk shows began to get more and more sensational, this program combined the two formats to create a news program that specialized in celebrity scandals, corporate conspiracies, and bizarre cult practices. This was also one of the shows that portayed the internet as a haven for rapists, perverts and child molesters. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

"Hard Copy" was not allowed to use any video or audio clips from The Howard Stern Show (1987). To circumvent this, whenever Howard Stern had a special guest or shocking moment on his show, "Hard Copy" hired Rod Dovlin of The Gossip Show (1993) on E! Entertainment Television, to appear on their show and literally recount what had happened on Howard's show that morning. See more »

Mugging and surprise style journalism.
6 December 2018 | by mm-39See all my reviews

Hard Copy had a hard edge to journalism. Ambush interviews, harsh questions and sensationalize cover stories like on the cover of the World Weekly etc are Hard Copy's style. Hard Copy was ahead of it's time. Fox news and Bill O'Reilly used some of Hard Copy and Inside Editions tactics brilliantly for non tabloid news. Now C N N has pushed the envelope even further with speculation, and bombastic commentary. Usually, I never watched Hard Copy, but every once in a while there would be front story with an edge which would hook me into watching. Sometimes there be some bad people who got hit hard, which made me feel good. Other times a unknown issues had to be addressed. Regrettable, there would be sensational stories like the Prepie murders, and or what mess happened in Hollywood, which just did not interest me. Interviews with ex cult members and other interview I would half watch then I got the urge to change the channel. Well considering I hate watching the news, I hate to admit, I would get a guilty pleasure watching a juicy story, but Hard Copy the whole course was just too juicy for me. 4 out of 10 stars.
