An honest film about the Bari case was made in 1990 by Steve Talbot, lately of PBS’s Frontline series. Talbot’s film was also called 'Who Bombed Judi Bari.' But unlike the hagiographic epic described above, it was an honest inquiry into the event. Talbot subsequently appeared on Belva Davis’s KQED television show called This Week In Northern California where he said that Bari had told him that she was certain that her ex-husband had tried to kill her. What doesn’t seem to be widely known on the Northcoast is that Bari’s legal team tested for dna years ago prior to Cherney’s latest show biz go-round with the FBI. The results of that prior test, along with much other information on the case, is available at theava.com The Bari “mystery” is eminently solvable, a fact that Cherney and Co. have been well compensated in concealing. This film, in my opinion, is simply part of an ongoing attempt by Cherney et al to Not Find Out Who Bombed Judi Bari.
Cunningham? Impressive? Dude! The Bari scammers had to bring in Serra to present the case because Cunningham couldn't be trusted to do it. The whole show, as you ought to know, Hank, remains some kind of unprecedented cover-up, the case itself being carefully tailored to omit all mention of the event itself and it's likely perps. An attendent mystery is Susan Faludi's surrender on her book after putting three or four years into researching it. And, of course, with the proceeds of their great victory Cherney buys a ranch and the Bari heirs get richer. Sweeney built the bomb, Bari knew he did it and everything that followed was a mutually convenient sham.
