10 Clichés and Misconceptions About the FBI in Books, TV, and Movies (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 16, 2017 05:13AM
Description: Most people will never meet a FBI agent. The only connections they have with the FBI are the ones they make through books, TV, and movies, along with, of course, the news. So, what if fictional portrayals of FBI agents are clichés or inaccurate? Does it really matter?

“During most of my Bureau career I worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money. I’ve also had the opportunity to work bank robberies and drug investigations. The one thing I know for sure is… With a gun you can steal hundreds. With a pen you can steal millions.”
