On Monday evening, Filmmaker John Ziegler and CNN correspondent Sara Ganim's discussion over the late football coach Joe Paterno's role in the Penn State Sex Scandal grew contentious when Ganim defended the outcome of the Jerry Sandusky trial.
"I sat through that trial every single day, I listened to all those men, including Mike McQueary, testify," said Ganim. "And at the end of the day, the jury believed them, every single one of them, including Mike McQueary. They believed he saw something inappropriate in that shower."
Ziegler took offense to Ganim's assessment taking aim at her 2012 Pulitzer Prize for her coverage on the case and trial calling her a "mouthpiece."
"She got a Pulitzer Prize for repeating the prosecutor's case," exclaimed Ziegler.
During the program Ziegler emphatically defended his belief that Paterno was unaware of Sandusky's conduct before McQueary's statement went public.
"He [Paterno] didn't know that was happening. Piers, there's no evidence of that. There's no conspiracy here," said Ziegler. "There is everyone acting in their own self-interest, throwing an old man who died soon after this happened under the bus to protect themselves, including the Penn State board of trustees."
Also on the Monday's program, Sherry West the grieving mother of a 13-month-old baby shot to death in his stroller by two teenagers spoke to Morgan about her tragic experience.
"I just hope, you know, that the shooter dies," said West. "I had to watch my baby die. And I want him to die, a life for a life."
"And the young one, he was an accessory, an accomplice. I hope that he gets a juvenile correctional facility to age 21 and a consecutive life sentence in state prison."
USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan joined Morgan to weigh in on Tiger Woods' career comeback, once again ranking number one in the world and his new Nike Ad that touts the slogan "Winning takes care of everything," implying that Woods' re-crowning erases his past indiscretions.
"To kind of assume that's just the brush of a hand now, that is Nike to a tee, that is vintage Nike" noted Brennan. "But I'm not so sure that that sells so well to the - you know, to the American public at large."
And PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley joined the program and encouraged Morgan to continue his debate on guns in America.
"My grand dad put it this way, 'There's some fights that ain't worth fighting even if you win. But there's other fights you have to fight even if you lose,'" said Smiley.
"This is a fight we should have fought. And if nominees to the Supreme Court - or federal bench, rather. If nominees to the federal bench deserve an up or down vote, America's children deserve an up or down vote on the assault weapons ban."
