Have you heard the one about the man on Death Row being freed any moment now after serving 30 years for a murder that the state of Louisiana now believes did not throw off enough evidence to lead to the man's arrest, let alone execution? It's a harrowing tale, championed by the Shreveport Times, and will be the subject tonight of discussion on Fox Business Network's fab television program The Independents, at 9 pm ET, 6 pm PT, with repeats three hours later. Joining the show to talk about the case will be Marc Hayden from Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, who were one of the subjects of this recent Reason.tv video.
Other topics include: Lousy (though beautiful-eyed) Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) getting all huffy about the CIA spying on her precious, transparency-hating Intelligence Committee; President Barack Obama's hoo-larious turn on Zach Galifianakis's Between Two Ferns chat-show; and new studies proving that Millennials are basically independent atheists who hate social conservatives and never work. Chewing on this topic will be Party Panelists Bill Spadea (New Jersey Republican) and Dan St. Germain (beardy comedian).
Former Virginia governor Jim Gilmore recently made headlines at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) by saying that "Edward Snowden is a traitor and a coward," so he'll be on to talk about that. Also, Republican senators keep smacking each other in the face with Ronald Reagan, so that will occasion some discussion. And although Reason-comments heartthrob Kmele Foster is taking his talents elsewhere tonight (something about a fancy "play" on "Broadway"), we’ll still be Keepin' it Kmele, with... Michael C. Moynihan??? And a million An-Cap hearts asplode....
There will be sexy after-show bits viewable (in theory!) at the show website.
