peteberg on ELI5: Why are people allowed to request their face be blurred out/censored in photos and videos, but celebrities are harassed daily by paparazzi putting their pics and videos in magazines, on the Internet and on TV? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Sorry that you feel this way. I make documentaries. We capture real life. Real life isn't always happy, and people make mistakes. I genuinely care about the people we film, and I sympathize with them. I couldn't do my job if I didn't have empathy and respect for the people that we film. I interview people and find out what they're thinking and feeling, and hear their side of the story. Everyone that I've ever done a story on has agreed to be filmed. That's why we have the releases. If they don't explicitly sign a release, they won't be on TV. I'm always completely up front about what they're signing, what it means, and where the footage potentially could be aired. I tell them the name of the show, the network that I work for, and am completely honest. I treat them exactly how I'd like to be treated if I were approached by a producer who had filmed me. That said, if we captured a strong story -- something sad, something unique, something funny, something that I find compelling as a..." - Pete Berg
peteberg on Reddit, what would you be most disappointed to win a lifetime supply of? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I once won a year's supply of El Pollo Loco from Twitter. It's cheap, crappy fast food fried chicken...I only ate it about a dozen times in the year -- it was pretty gross, but free..." - Pete Berg
peteberg on I was on an episode of cops, Ask me anything. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I worked as a Producer for Langley Productions, the company that makes Cops. I can verify that the company does not use footage unless there is a signed release for every person that appears on camera. Sometimes they'll blur people that appear in the background, but any main subject of a segment must be released or the footage will not be used. In the case of minors, the release must be signed by a parent/guardian. Also, the company NEVER provides people money for signing a release...which makes my job very difficult. I have to convince people into signing and can't really offer them anything. (I worked on "JAIL" personally, but it follows the same rules as Cops.)" - Pete Berg

"This didn't help very much: "CIA organised fake vaccination drive to get Osama bin Laden's family DNA" http://www.theguardian.com/world... Now the Pakistani Taliban are extremely leery of vaccination programs because they think they could be a trick from a foreign government." - Pete Berg
peteberg on How is IC's Economics program? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Honestly, Ithaca seems like an extremely expensive school to go to for a middling economics program. If you don't get a big scholarship, you're better off going to a less expensive school for Economics, or a school that is famous for its program. (I went to IC for Television-Radio...class of 2007.)" - Pete Berg

peteberg on Hae's note: this theory could change the state's timeline - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Exactly. Seems pretty obvious. I'm not sure why so many people have such a hard time understanding the context here." - Pete Berg
peteberg on My reasoning why Adnan is INNOCENT..look at the phone logs. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I disagree. The simplest explanation is that Jay was actually at Jen's house, and Adnan was using his own phone to call Jay at Jen's place (along with Nisha)." - Pete Berg
peteberg on [Official Discussion] Serial, Episode 12: What We Know - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"So you're saying that the police secretly met with Jay after they found the body, and told him to go around lying to people, Jenn included, for weeks before they taped an interview with him on Feb. 28th? And even after being their patsy and lying to a bunch of people, Jay still tells a bunch of lies at the beginning of his first TAPED interview, before he says "OK, I come clean."" - Pete Berg
peteberg on [Official Discussion] Serial, Episode 12: What We Know - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"You're extremely right that it sounds farfetched. The police would have to find Hae's car themselves, and become dead set on pinning the murder on Adnan. (What's their motivation?) The police would have to secretly contact Jay, inform him that they're not only framing his friend but also implicating him in a murder case that he had nothing to do with, tell him what to say, get him to repeat it to several people for weeks, and also convince Jenn Pusateri to go along with the plan as well. (What's his motivation? What are they offering Jay?) Jenn Pusateri would also have to tell Jay's lie, in front of her mother and lawyer, to the police...and then later, testify in court two times. (What's her motivation?) Seems completely unbelievable to me. The logical explanation is that Jay was involved with Hae's murder. We know this because he took the police to her car. The "utility of the lies" as SK calls it, must be to protect himself, to protect Jenn, or to protect some other third party." - Pete Berg

"Jay also told Jenn the whole story before either of them were interviewed by police. The police subpoenaed Adnan's cell phone log. Jenn was called 6 times that day. On February 26th 1999, the police first interviewed Jenn and she denied any knowledge of Hae's murder. That evening, she goes home and hangs out with Jay. The following day, February 27th, she returns to the police *on her own prerogative* with her lawyer and mother, and gives her first recorded statement, which implicates Adnan and Jay. A few hours after Jen's interview on the evening of February 27th was when Jay's first recorded statement was given (the recording actually began after midnight on the 28th.) Why the hell would Jenn go back to the police, on her own volition, to tell them some story that Jay made up for laughs? Jay must have *really* wanted to "be a part of it"!" - Pete Berg

"One of the following has to be true: 1. Jay has the cell phone and is calling Jenn at 3:21. (And therefore, Jay is not at Jenn's house at that time.) 2. Adnan has the cell phone and is calling Jenn's house to get in touch with Jay at 3:21. Things we know: Adnan is not friends with Jenn, so he has no reason to call her. Both Jay and Jenn have claimed multiple times that Jay was at her house until about 3:45. Adnan claims that he was at school, about to head to track practice, at 3:21. Jenn, Jay and Adnan all claim that Jay had the cell phone that afternoon. (Who had it?)" - Pete Berg

"From Josh's interview, it sounds like Jay had been talking about being involved with Hae's burial for weeks before he spoke to the police. Jenn was brought in for her first police interview on February 26th. She denied knowing anything. Allegedly later that evening on the 26th, Jenn spoke to Jay (and they had time to hash out their stories). Jenn went to the police a second time the following day with her lawyer and gave her recorded statement. 3:45 p.m. on February 27, 1999. Jay presumably was working with Josh at the video store and all paranoid on February 27th. Jay was brought in by police for his first interview on the evening of February 27th, and they began recording his first statement at 12:30 a.m. on February 28, 1999." - Pete Berg

"Arguing that the entire story is a police conspiracy seems completely implausible: 1. Jay told multiple friends (Josh, Chris, Jenn) that he was involved with Hae's death BEFORE he ever spoke to the police. He told all three of them that Adnan killed Hae, and he helped bury the body. 2. Jenn was interviewed and gave her recorded statement before the police ever spoke to Jay. We know that Jay knew *something* about the murder before he was ever interrogated." - Pete Berg
peteberg on [Official Discussion] Serial, Episode 12: What We Know - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The fact that Jay told several friends specific details about the murder and claimed that he helped bury the body PRIOR to the police ever speaking to him rules out a police conspiracy in my book." - Pete Berg
peteberg on [Official Discussion] Serial, Episode 12: What We Know - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Then how do you explain Jay telling his friends Chris and Josh (both interviewed on Serial), and presumably others, that he saw Hae's dead body and helped bury her BEFORE he was interviewed by the police?" - Pete Berg

"If Adnan had the phone and was working with Jay, Jay would have told him "I'll be at Jenn's house, this is her number." According to Jenn's statement, Jay was at her house in the afternoon waiting for a phone call (presumably from Adnan). Not sure if I buy it, but it's plausible." - Pete Berg
