CNN Tonight!

There is potentially some interesting news here.

CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” which airs at 10 p.m. East Coast time (check your local listings) is expected to air an investigative piece on Cameron Todd Willingham tonight.

Many of you will recall that Willingham – one of four people featured in NCADP’s report, “Innocent and Executed: Four Chapters in the Life of America’s Death Penalty” – was executed in Texas three years ago despite evidence that the fire that took his children’s lives was accidental, not intentionally set. The Chicago Tribune (which this month or next month might be winning a Pulitizer Prize for its death penalty reporting in Texas) broke the story about the faulty arson science behind Willingham’s conviction. You can read their story here.

We do not know at this time whether the CNN report will include any new information. Also, be advised that the report could very well be bumped if there is breaking news of any sort (Iraq, Alberto Gonzales, Anna Nicole Smith, etc.)
