Lawrence O’Donnell, host of The Final Word on MSNBC, called in to talk about a new edition of his 1983 book DEADLY FORCE: A Police Shooting and My Family’s Search for the Truth. We discussed how his father represented the widow of the victim, how police shootings were virtually ignored the 70s, and what parallels can be drawn between then and now.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews called in to talk about his new book Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit. We discussed his personal memory of Kennedy’s assassination, how America would be different with Kennedy instead of Nixon, and why he likes to be nearly camera-ready even for radio appearances.
