The Duggars’ Road to Ruin: From Molestation to Cancellation - The Daily Beast: "The journey of the Duggar family, stars of the popular TLC series ’19 Kids and Counting,’ from the first signs of trouble to pedophile confessions to the show’s eventual cancellation. A few days before Oprah was scheduled to host the Duggar family on her show in December 2006, her production company, Harpo Studios, received a very strange, anonymous email.
At the time, the Arkansas family was best known for starring in the 2004 documentary 14 Kids and Pregnant Again! and for espousing ultra-conservative Christian values, particularly during patriarch Jim Bob’s run for U.S. Senate in 2002. And yet, despite the family’s super clean public image, the email accused the Duggar’s eldest son, Josh, of molesting girls, and his parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, of covering up his actions. "
