Tonight ON THE RECORD at 10pm – Eagles QB Michael Vick and President/CEO of The Humane Society of the United States Wayne Pacelle.
The interview you will see tonight was taped just minutes ago. I have been on the air almost 20 years and this was a difficult interview. You all know how much I love animals but I also believe – in most instances – in rehabilitation and giving someone the opportunity to restore his or her good name.
What Michael Vick did is terrible. He tortured animals. Like all the murders we cover, this breaks my heart. He says he is sorry and is now trying to make it up beyond the penalty the Judge gave him. He is working (volunteering) with the Humane Society — he does not get paid and it is not part of some probation or parole. He is working with the Humane Society because he wants to and not because he has to. I give him credit for that. The fact that The Humane Society of the United States “forgives” him is likewise very instructive to me.
Has he changed? I am curious what you think after seeing this interview tonight. I wanted to give him a fair interview and I hope I did.
Tonight you will see him ON THE RECORD at 10pm.
