Plus, he'll give us some insights into the Bradley Manning trial as it wraps up. What is likely to happen with Bradley Manning?
But first, the director of the controversial new documentary, BLACKFISH. The film looks at the killing of a top trainer at Seaworld by the orca named Tillikum. How it all happened and how many of the facts were covered up by Seaworld. The movie is riveting and has footage that is revealing and intense.
