I figured I'd bump this up rather than make a new thread to once again mark the anniversary of the debut of AMW. It has now been 26 years since the show debuted. Obviously, John Walsh looks to have moved on to a new venture, but it is still important to note what started it all!
I was reading one of John Walsh's books where they said he didn't start calling them "scumbags" until after the show's 1996 cancellation. The executives at Fox at the time apparently were more lenient with him Even looking at the 1996 episodes of the show that are available on YouTube, John still seems nervous.
Maybe it was jitters from coming back. But yeah that book was No Mercy probably. Because I read it and remember him talking about Eddie James and how if he had profiled him after 1996 he would have been a lot more vocal about how much he hated him than he was in the early 90's when he reported in a more matter-of-fact way.
