Anderson spoke with filmmakers Dr. Joe Brewster and Michele Stevenson, who are also the parents of one of the boys featured in "American Promise."

Amanda Knox vows to fight her second conviction

Yesterday's verdict must seem like deja-vu for Amanda Knox. She was first found guilty of murdering Meredith Kercher back in 2009. Back then, she was sentenced to 25 years in prison, this time she was sentenced to more than 28. But the big question now is whether she will have to serve that sentence. Anderson takes a look at the twists and turns in this case.

Anderson discusses whether Knox could really face extradition with The Daily Beast's Rome Bureau Chief Barbie Latza Nadeau, Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin.

Hero doctor walks miles through Alabama storm to perform lifesaving surgery

There's nothing in a neurosurgeon's job description that calls for walking nearly six miles in the cold, wearing nothing more than scrubs, a windbreaker and a pair of crocs, to get to the next procedure. Dr. Zenko Hrynkiw was at the Brookwood Medical Center in icy Birmingham, Alabama Tuesday morning when he learned he was needed to perform emergency brain surgery at another local hospital. Driving was impossible, so the doctor set off on foot, did the surgery and saved a life. He told Anderson he was just doing his job.
