NBC Settles With Family That Blamed a TV Investigation for a Man’s Suicide

Date: June 25, 2008
Author: BRIAN STELTER
QUOTE: The lawsuit spotlighted the techniques used by the hidden-camera program to attract men online by having someone pose as an under-age girl in a chat room, then luring them to a house where they were confronted by a camera crew and host. While “To Catch a Predator” drew high ratings for NBC, ethical questions were raised over the program’s all-access arrangements with the local police and an online watchdog group.
