Helter Skelter (1976)
In the case of Los Angeles CBS owned-and-operated KNXT-TV (now KCBS-TV), "Helter Skelter" aired June 10 and 11, 1976. The reason given for the delay was Vincent Bugliosi, author of the book and the prosecuting attorney in the Tate-LaBianca murder trial, was running for office as Los Angeles County District Attorney. Due to the 1975 death of Joseph P. Busch Jr., a special election was held on June 8, 1976. Bugliosi lost the race to incumbent interim District Attorney John Van de Kamp.
