HLN executives were pleased with Monday night’s special report, “Naked Justice: A Matter of Trust”, and have decided to extend the show for at least another week. The show was created quickly as a response to protests that have spread across the country in the wake of the chokehold death of Eric Garner, and the rise of hashtags like #ICantBreathe.
The 7 p.m. ET hour, hosted by CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin and HLN legal analyst Joey Jackson, dealt with race, the justice system, and the role of social media. “The protests have been orchestrated and sustained through social media,” Hostin told TVNewser. “From my Twitter feed and Instagram accounts, it is so clear to me that social media has provided access to real time reactions and emotions from people at the heart of the stories and those it touches.”
