What The Jailbird Doesn't Want You To Know

Kevin Trudeau is in jail, finally, and possibly for a long time. You might recognize his face from years of TV infomercials in which he sold weight-loss diets, financial advice, and books about all sorts of things he claimed "they" don't want you to know about. He was as slick a pitchman as they come, but the Federal Trade Commission clamped down on him because his claims were bogus, and fined him $37 million. He wouldn't pay, and this week, was jailed on a contempt of court charge.

I talked this over with Sharon Hill, editor/publisher of Doubtful News, who has been covering the Trudeau case. She explained how he got into trouble, how his supporters/victims still believe he's done nothing wrong, and why the government still can't get his money.
