Synopsis

The greatest hoaxes in modern history are remembered in A&E's American Justice: Quiz Show Scandal and Other Frauds. Herbert Stempel's story was popularized in the movie Quiz Show. As a contestant on the '50s program Twenty One, Stempel became a victim of a ratings bid which made him the fall guy for a corrupt industry. He recalls the shameful incident in a moving interview. A&E profiles another con man, author Clifford Irving, who claimed to have written an autobiography with recluse Howard Hughes. When his lie was revealed by the billionaire himself, Irving was sentenced to jail for fraud. In later years, Tawana Brawley accused a group of white policemen of raping her. A jury found her story unbelievable and dismissed the charges. She is now being sued for defamation. Through interviews and real-life testimony, A&E documents the biggest lies in courtroom history. ~ Sarah Ing, Rovi
