GUESTS: Wade Goodwyn/ Reporter, NPR Peter Annon/ Reporter, Newsweek Magazine Opening statements are set to begin this Thursday in the trial of Oklahoma City bombing suspect Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh is charged with murdering 168 people in the 1995 blast. Host Melinda Penkava and guests discuss whether McVeigh can get an unbiased jury and a fair trial, and how this case compares to other high profile criminal cases. Also, they'll examine the impact the recent FBI Lab scandal may have on the prosecution's forensic evidence.
