CNN obtained recordings of jailhouse phone calls made by Michael Dunn while he was awaiting trial. He was speaking with his fiancé, and the conversations offer a unique insight not seen in court. He describes himself as both "victor" and "victim," he also calls his fellow inmates "animals."
Benjamin Crump is the attorney for Trayvon Martin's family. He spoke with Anderson after listening to the Dunn tapes.
Anderson discussed all of this with criminal defense attorney Joseph Haynes Davis, New York Times op-ed columnist and CNN political commentator Charles Blow along with our own legal team of Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos.
Violence erupts in the heart of one of Eastern Europe's major cities. Ukrainian security forces moved in against protesters in the capital of Kiev. Anderson discussed the developing situation with Phil Black in Kiev along with former CNN correspondent Jill Dougherty who is now a fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
Bowe Bergdahl is the only American soldier still in captivity. The Army sergeant was taken in Afghanistan in 2009. The Taliban has long demanded the release of five prisoners from Guantanamo in exchange for his freedom. Today a U.S. official confirmed new discussions led by diplomats and the Pentagon are underway. Senator John McCain is a former prisoner of war and speaks with Anderson about this and frightening developments in Syria.
NBC's Christin Cooper is getting lambasted after her post-race interview with U.S. skier Bode Miller. Cooper repeatedly asked Miller about the death of his brother, which eventually led to him breaking down in tears in front of the cameras. Bode Miller spoke with Rachel Nichols, host of CNN's 'Unguarded.'
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
