    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -5- June 2006

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -5- June 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed a 5th time by producer Kerry O'Connor for "On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren" on FOX News television network, on June 27, 2006. This was the fifth of nine (5of9) discussions with this producer over the following months in 2006. Mark Henkel had noted that the three-year-anniversary (6/26/2006) of the US Supreme Court decision of Lawrence v. Texas (6/25/2003) had passed, removing their opportunity to use that news-story as the way to get him onto the show. The producer followed-up with more questions about the then-current story about “Heartland Ministry” in Missouri having their children removed by the federal government. Mark Henkel said that he could find no connection to polygamy. The producer admitted that the suggestion had come from an attorney for the government. Mark Henkel replied that that person was simply a rumor-mongerer.  The interview also brought up how renowned Christian leader, Jerry Falwell, was fully and publicly aware of Mark Henkel over the previous three years. The reporter stated that she knew Falwell’s publicity people and that she would see if that might open a way to bring Mark Henkel onto the show. The producer re-iterated that they need to come up with some "angle" they can use for her to pitch to her bosses as the way to get Mark Henkel onto the show. Again, subsequent interviews between the two will be broadcast in the forthcoming podcast episodes.

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -4- June 2006

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -4- June 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed a 4th time by producer Kerry O'Connor for "On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren" on FOX News television network, on June 5, 2006. This was the fourth of nine (4of9) discussions with this producer over the following months in 2006.  In this interview, the producer asked about a then-current story about “Heartland Ministry” in Missouri having their children removed, and how the federal government had dropped an innuendo that that Christian community “might” also be “involved in polygamy.” When Mark Henkel called it a rumor and asked who had put that rumor out, the producer said that it was “from the government.”  Mark Henkel said that he had never heard of the ministry but said he would put “feelers” out within his organization for more information.  This interview addressed other issues as well. Mark Henkel gave a new version of his “right to imagination” soundbite in which he explained that people even have a right to believe that “square wheels will roll,” but government has no authority to marriage control. He also provided an extensive education about the actual anti-polygamy case of the 1878 US Supreme Court Decision, Reynolds v. United States. Impressed with Mark Henkel’s extensive knowledge of the case and the US Constitution, the producer said, “It’s amazing that you hold that all in your head.” She said she would check out the legal issues and see if they can come up with a “pitch” to get Mark Henkel on the show. In the end, the producer re-iterated, “I appreciate that you call me, I really do. Don't feel like you shouldn't.” The subsequent interviews between the two will be broadcast in the forthcoming podcast episodes.

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -3- June 2006

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -3- June 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed a 3rd time by producer Kerry O'Connor for "On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren" on FOX News television network, on June 5, 2006. This was the third of nine (3of9) discussions with this producer over the following months in 2006. As Warren Jeffs was still "on the lam," and the first season of HBO’s “Big Love” was still be broadcast, the producer for this show on FOX had, in previous discussions wiht Mark Henkel, wanted to present "the other side of polygamy." In the previous interview (on May 25, 2006), she had been seeking to get Mark Henkel on the show for June 2, 2006. That did not happen. Other news had called the producer away. Mark Henkel kept trying to reach her by phone until the call succeeded on June 5, 2006. Together, they discussed how US President George W. Bush was about to speak that day about the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, which was about to start being debated in the Senate the next day, on the date of 6/6/6. The producer needed to have her meeting with the host, and she planned to speak again later with Mark Henkel.  When she did not call back, Mark Henkel called again on June 7, 2006, but only got voicemail. This was also a short discussion; even so, it is essential to inform of the pattern of calls between the producer and Mark Henkel over the months in 2006.

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -2- May 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed a 2nd time by producer Kerry O'Connor for "On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren" on FOX News television network, on May 25, 2006.  This was the second of nine (2of9) discussions with this producer over the following months in 2006. As Warren Jeffs was still "on the lam," and the first season of HBO’s “Big Love” was still be broadcast, the producer for this show on FOX wanted to present "the other side of polygamy."  The producer said that she almost had called Mark Henkel on Friday, May 19th, to have him on, but other breaking news happened.  They discussed possible logistics for his possibly being on the show the following Friday (June 2).  The producer said that the host was out “fighting gators in Florida” (and other stories) and that the producer would speak with that host the next day.  This was a short discussion; even so, it is essential to inform of the pattern of calls between the producer and Mark Henkel over the months in 2006.

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -1- May 2006

    FOXNews Greta Van Susteren (Kerry O'Connor) interviewed Mark Henkel -1- May 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by producer Kerry O'Connor for "On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren" on FOX News television network, on May 18, 2006.  This was the first of nine (1of9) discussions with this producer over the following months in 2006. As Warren Jeffs was still "on the lam," and the first season of HBO’s “Big Love” was still be broadcast, the producer for this show on FOX wanted to present "the other side of polygamy." Mark Henkel provided some quick education. He helped the producer understand that not all polygamy occurs “in the Mormonland bubble” of Utah/Arizona. He adamantly declared that normal families in UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, equally oppose the crimes for which Warren Jeffs was being sought and accused (and later convicted). And Henkel told a story of one family in the TruthBearer.org organization that had been sued by a violent wife-beating ex-husband to get back child custody only because anti-polygamy laws were “on the books,” to allow him to do so - costing the family thousands of dollars to defend against that which otherwise would have been easily dismissed as a frivolous lawsuit. "So the existence of the legal law can be used to abuse with the civil law," explained Henkel. The producer exclaimed, “Wow!” and she expressed how she could see how that was possible by such laws being "on the books." Mark Henkel and the producer developed a positive rapport. She even laughed positively when Mark Henkel gave the soundbite of “marriage-phobic baby daddy males” in a contemporary society, while the hypocrisy remains of criminalizing caring husbands who deliberately want marriage responsibilities with UCAP polygamy. Thus began several interviews in trying to find ways for the producer to put Mark Henkel on their show.

    HLN Nancy Grace Show (Alexis Weed) interviewed Mark Henkel - Jan 2014

    HLN Nancy Grace Show (Alexis Weed) interviewed Mark Henkel - Jan 2014

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by producer Alexis Weed for the Nancy Grace Show on HLN Headline News television network, on January 14, 2014. They were seeking a response to the December 13, 2013, decision by a federal judge in Utah to strike down the "cohabitation clause" in that State's bigamy law.  Although later over-turned in 2016, that temporary court decision effectively de-criminalized "de facto polygamy" (i.e., polygamy with only one wife having a government marriage license) in Utah at the time. The producer did attempt to get pushy at times, but Mark Henkel stood his ground and they positively agreed to organize a live interview a couple hours later on the show. When speaking of the false stereotyping of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, Mark Henkel said, “You can't compare all football players to Jerry Sandusky and his crimes.” The producer exclaimed, "I like that example. I do." This podcast episode is the pre-interview with the producer. The live TV interview with the host herself, Nancy Grace, was broadcast in Episode 25 of this podcast, posted back in September, 2018.
