Description

Convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was interviewed from prison during which he repeatedly expressed his anger toward the federal government. He did not proclaim his innocence, nor did he deny his conviction. Jurors were also questioned about whether McVeigh was given a fair trial. After the story, the federal Bureau of Prisons and members of Congress were angry that McVeigh was given such access to air his opinions and sought legislation to limit federal prisoners' interviewing privileges.
