The Joseph Fritzl case in Austria is a horrifying train wreck that I can’t stop reading about. But today’s story takes the cake, what with Fritzl complaining about poor media coverage from jail:

His criticism of the international media’s reporting was published in the German tabloid Bild Zeitung.

“I could have killed them all,” reads the front page headline of

today’s Bild Zeitung. And Fritzl, dubbed a monster by the Austrian

media, told his lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, “I’m not a monster,” according to

today’s report.

Fritzl is sharing his prison cell with another man who is

serving time for taking part in a shooting incident. The men have a TV

set and a radio available to them in their cell.

Ah, the delusions of psychopathic grandeur…
