Dan Rather asks: Did Texas execute innocent men?

No kidding. Tonight, a relatively new TV network, HDNet, which only goes into 400,000 households across the country, airs a special, commercial-free, 40-minute report entitled, “Dan Rather Reports: Did Texas Execute Innocent Men?”

The report, partly reported and entirely anchored anchored by Dan Rather, looks at the cases of Ruben Cantu and Carlos De Luna, who were two of the four people included in NCADP’s 2006 report, “Innocent and Executed: Four Chapters in the Life of America’s Death Penalty.”

The program will air at 8 p.m. East Coast time and again at 11 p.m. East Coast time so that people on the West Coast can see it during prime time. The new cable network carrying the report is called HDNet, and is unavailable to most American viewers (it only goes into 400,000 households.)

If you visit HDNets web site, you can see that a lot of restaurants and, strangely, sports bars do carry the network as part of their satellite programming (go here to see what cable systems carry HDNet: http://www.hd.net/watch_at_home.html And go here to see whether restaurants or bars in your town carry it: http://www.hd.net/sportsbars.html )

For those of you who can't get to a place that has HDNet, you can see a clip from tonight's program by going here.
