In the episode of CBS series FBI that aired on Tuesday, a suspect in the kidnapping of a Russian scientist is identified by face recognition technology. Among the information presented by an FBI agent to her colleagues early on in the show is that an obituary for the suspect's mother appeared in 2008 in the Hudson Register-Star.
That detail alone is evidence that the TV show is fiction. Since the Register-Star morphed into HudsonValley360, its entire online archive has been inaccessible--probably even to the FBI.
The image above is a screen capture from the show. The entire episode, called "This Land Is Your Land," can be viewed here.
