Both WTVD and News 14 Carolina called on John Locke Foundation staffers for comment Tuesday about top news issues.

WTVD’s lead story at 6 p.m. focused on the N.C. Court of Appeals ruling that could free two prisoners sentenced to life in prison back in the 1970s, when the state defined a life sentence as 80 years behind bars.

Meanwhile, Rick Henderson shared his thoughts about the 2012 presidential and gubernatorial races during his latest appearance on “The Insiders” segment for News 14 Carolina’s “Capital Tonight.”
