As investigative news shows and daytime talk shows began to get more and more sensational, this program combined the two formats to create a news program that specialized in celebrity scandals, corporate conspiracies, and bizarre cult practices. This was also one of the shows that portayed the internet as a haven for rapists, perverts and child molesters.

Did You Know?
"Hard Copy" was not allowed to use any video or audio clips from The Howard Stern Show
(1987). To circumvent this, whenever Howard Stern
had a special guest or shocking moment on his show, "Hard Copy" hired Rod Dovlin
of The Gossip Show
(1993) on E! Entertainment Television, to appear on their show and literally recount what had happened on Howard's show that morning. See more
