Why ‘Wild Card’ Directors Withheld Details of Craig Carton’s Sexual Abuse Until Mid-Documentary

HBO’s “Wild Card: The Downfall of a Radio Loudmouth” promised a revealing look at former WFAN morning radio personality Craig Carton. During the documentary, the former “Boomer and Carton” host — who was recently released from prison for his involvement in a multimillion-dollar ticket-resale pyramid scheme — said he was repeatedly sexually abused at a sleep-away camp as a child.

The time between setup and payoff, if we may borrow terms generally used for far less serious matters, may make viewers feel like they may not get specifics — but boy, do they.

“That was a purposeful decision,” Marie McGovern, who co-directed and produced the doc with her StreetSmartVideo partner Martin Dunn, told TheWrap.
