CNN.com is running a headline on their front page, "Critics: Governor part of execution cover-up", on the right under "Latest News".
It links to a video that is a version of the story that ran on Anderson Cooper and Headline News over the weekend, but now it is linked to on the front page of CNN.com. (I saw it on the front page after midnight on Oct 6.)
I tried to embed the video using the code on cnn.com, but I got an error message from the DailyKos software, so below is the CNN video that aired over the weekend from YouTube. It is the same, except for the intro anchor.
Time.com also just put up a front page story "Why Did Texas Gut Its Forensics Commission?":
But, in the past week, a brouhaha over his refusal to reappoint three members of an obscure forensic-science commission has political observers wondering if Perry, who is facing a potentially bruising GOP primary battle, has made a political misstep.
A well-placed source has confirmed to TIME that Perry ignored the written pleas from several members of the Texas Forensic Science Commission, including two of his own appointees, to reappoint the board's well-respected chairman, Austin lawyer Sam Bassett. Bassett's departure has resulted in a delay in an important investigation of evidence in a death-penalty case that critics say will prove an innocent man was executed on Perry's watch.
Sarah Kerrigan, a forensic toxicologist who was appointed by Texas attorney general Greg Abbott, told TIME that she had circulated a letter she had sent "three or four weeks ago" in support of Bassett to Perry among the commission's members and she was aware of similar letters written by Watts and Levy. (The governor appoints four members of the forensics board; the state attorney general appoints two and the lieutenant governor appoints three. In this case, Bassett, Levy and Watts were all Perry appointees. Bassett was first named to the commission in 2005 and reappointed in 2007.)
Sign a petition to Governor Rick Perry and the State of Texas to acknowledge that the fire in the Cameron Todd Willingham case was not arson, therefore no crime was committed and on February 17, 2004, Texas executed an innocent man.
