The special was interesting, especially the interview with Michael Eric Dyson and his brother who is in jail for life. Although the coverage only scratched the surface, one could argue that this was neccesary for such a broad audience. Soledad did a nice job anchoring. Fun fact, she is actually half black (afro cuban) half irish australian!
