A free-lance journalist who had worked briefly for the television news tabloid "A Current Affair" has been charged by authorities in New York and Los Angeles with attempting to steal sensitive information from the network's computers in those cities. Stuart Goldman, 44, was arraigned in federal court in Los Angeles on Friday, a day after police searched his Studio City apartment and confiscated his personal computer and floppy disks.

During its late-1980s heyday, TV's "A Current Affair" dived with relish into tawdry crimes and oddball stories, with host Maury Povich providing the requisite disapproving smirk or arched eyebrow. The staff, including a fair number of refugees from Australian tabloids, delighted in mixing it up with the convicts, local heroes and various unfortunates whose tales were spun for daily ratings gold.

The recycled news magazine "A Current Affair," which ran for a decade its first time around, has been canceled less than eight months after returning to the air. The Twentieth Television series, which launched in March with host Tim Green, will be replaced by "Geraldo at Large," a half-hour news show with Fox News Channel's Geraldo Rivera. "A Current Affair" will air through October.

Los Angeles Police Sgt. Stacey C. Koon, convicted with Officer Laurence M. Powell in the Rodney G. King civil rights trial, said Monday that acquitted co-defendant Theodore J. Briseno is a "coward," a "rat" and a "traitor." Koon said that Briseno, who broke ranks with his colleagues during an earlier state trial and testified that other policemen were "out of control" when they beat King, is "out for his own interests."

After the verdicts are reached in the Rodney G. King civil rights case, don't expect to see the four defendants making statements all over the place. The four men on trial have made themselves available to just one news outlet--for a price. They will most likely take their case to the tabloid news show "A Current Affair." The idea to market the four was born in the mind of Sgt. Stacey C. Koon, one of the defendants.
