The Deventer Media Case

A six-part podcast series on how the Deventer murder case degenerates into a media case. From reporting and truth-telling via infotainment to a smear campaign. Fact and fiction take on a life of their own and there are more victims than just the murdered widow. Journalists, editors of talk shows, opinion makers, Dutch celebrities and others involved explain how they became part of this media drama. Podcast maker Annegriet Wietsma elaborates on the book Deventer Moordzaak; het complot ontrafeld (The Hague Murder Case; the conspiracy unravelled) by journalist Bas Haan. In the podcast there is an important role for Michael de Jong, who was made suspicious by the media and labelled as ‘the handyman’. He tells how the affair shapes his life to this day.
