Clips From Last Night: Bakley family attorney on Robert Blake; Kurt Andersen on Obama's newest attack ad

On Monday, Piers Morgan spoke with Eric Dubin, the attorney that brought the civil liability case against Robert Blake on behalf of Bonny Lee Bakley's family.

Blake, who was acquitted for Bakley's murder in the 2001 criminal case, was found liable for the wrongful death of his wife in the civil trial and was ordered to pay $30 million to the Bakley family. In the now infamous "Piers Morgan Tonight" interview that first aired on July 11, 2012, Blake insisted on his innocence in regards to his wife's death.

“He did kill Bonny," Dubin said in response. "But for celebrity justice, he'd be in prison."

"I can assure everybody the LAPD put their top men in this case," explained Dubin. "It was the biggest investigation in LAPD history. They got the right guy, and celebrity justice is why he's free, and he should be lucky to be walking the streets right now."

Kurt Andersen was also on the program Monday and talked about Barack Obama's latest ad attacking Mitt Romney, which continues to hammer Romney for his personal wealth and his record at Bain Capital. "That's the best shot he has," said Andersen on Obama's current strategy to paint Romney as a rich person with something to hide.

"It's a certain kind of 'what are you hiding there rich person?'" continued Andersen. "And as Mike Huckabee so famously said, 'a guy who looks like the guy who just fired you' as opposed to a jolly rich person like say Ross Perot before he went mad."

    I believe your program sank to the bottom of the ratings when you interview Robert Blake, I turned your program off that night.
