Telephone lines were open for viewer comments “Your View of the Death Penalty?” The lines were divided by support or opposition to the penalty. The questions was inspired by an April 29, 2014, execution in Oklahoma that went awry. A video clip was shown of President Obama speaking the previous day about the incident and calling for the attorney general to analyze problems surrounding the application of the death penalty in the United States.
The program included a video clip of Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) being interviewed the previous day for “Newsmakers” and of entertainer Joel McHale being interviewed about the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner. close
