WEB EXTRA: A conversation on race and justice in America with Rep. Bobby Rush, Newt Gingrich, Crystal Wright, Charles Blow and Sherrilyn Ifill.
Candy Crowley pays tribute to her friend, the late Helen Thomas, a "dogged" and "fierce" pioneer in journalism.
Another packed State of the Union this week. We covered a lot of ground with Sen. John McCain; including the Zimmerman trial and “Stand Your Ground” laws, the controversial Rolling Stone cover, the situation in Syria and Liz Cheney’s Senate run.
Candy was then joined by Rep. Xavier Becerra and Rep. Cedric Richmond for a discussion about race relations in the wake of George Zimmerman’s murder acquittal and President Obama’s Friday remarks. The conversation continued with our panel, which included Newt Gingrich, Crystal Wright, Sherrilyn Ifill and Charles Blow. They were joined in the discussion by Rep. Bobby Rush.
Professor Charles Ogletree puts President Obama's recent remarks on race and violence into context.
Sen. John McCain tells Candy the cover of Rolling Stone with the Boston bomber is "stupid" and "inappropriate".
Sen. John McCain, who lost in 2008 to the first African-American elected to the White House, talks to Candy about the hope for a post-racial era. McCain said President Barack Obama's speech about race relations was "very impressive" and agreed that "stand your ground" laws should be re-examined, including those in his own state of Arizona.
"The 'stand your ground' law may be something that may needs to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union."FULL STORY
