morning." good morning norah. >> good wednesday morning to you charlie. >> we begin with good news. a story of freedom after a long prison nightmare. a 29-year-old missouri man sentenced to 40 years behind bars is finally back with his family this morning. ryan ferguson spent nearly a decade trying to prove he is an innocent man. he celebrated release last night with a steak and beer. >> a state appeals court overturned the murder conviction last week. now missouri's attorney general says he will not retry the case. ryan ferguson and his father join us in a moment. first aaron is here with eight years of original reporting uncovering many gaps in the case. good many to you. >> it is a good morning. . when the state appointed a special prosecutor to handle the case most expected it would take months to resolve his fate. it took just four days.
7:04 am
>> yea. it was finally over. last night a smiling ryan ferguson appeared before supporters in the press. no longer in handcuffs or his prison issued jump suit. he first thanked his parents bill and leslie ferguson. >> they're the absolute most amazing parents you could ever have. without them i wouldn't have had any hope. >> guilty of murder in the second degree. >> ferguson was convicted in 2005 of killing ken heitholt a popular newspaper sports editor. there was plenty physical evidence at the scene, but none matched ferguson. he was convicted on the word of two witnesses, one charles eriksson a high school classmate that claimed they killed heitholt in a late night robbery and another, the janitor that said he saw ferguson at the crime scene. both men later admitted they
7:05 am
lied at trial. surprisingly ferguson holds no grudges against his former friend. >> he was used and manipulated. i feel sorry for the guy. >> along side ferguson was his attorney kathleen zellner that took the case pro bono after seeing the report on 48 hours. >> so worth the effort of what we did, what his parents did. just an amazing person. >> last week the appellate court ruled prosecutors concealed evidence from ferguson's defense and he didn't get a fair trial. ryan ferguson is now looking forward to the little things. >> i kind of want dairy queen. >> making up for lost time with his big sister and the rest of his family. and catching up with good friends. >> of course my beautiful girlfriend. >> the state announced it would not retry him at this time. what that means is that the
7:06 am
state could bring charges at a future time if new evidence surfaced. there's far more evidence pointing to other suspects than ferguson. >> ryan ferguson and his father bill with us from missouri for their first sit down interview since being released. good morning. >> good morning. >> i can imagine you never thought you might see this day or always believed you would. now that it has arrived, tell us your emotions. >> my emotions personally i don't think they caught up to me yet. it's amazing. you know, quite early in the morning, haven't really had the opportunity to experience the day yet, but i know there will be new adventures and it will be incredible. definitely look to get into the day. >> you said to get arrested and charged for a crime you didn't commit is easy. to get out of prison it takes an army. tell me about that. >> it does. >> well it does take an army.

7:08 am
helped put you there. >> you know mr. eriksson was used. i think it's easy to see that by looking at the facts. you know there needs to be accountability for the the way he was used. there's multiple cases where other individuals have been you know kind of pushed into false confessions. that's another subject that would take quite a while to go into that completely. i feel sorry for that individual. hopefully we'll get justice one day. >> what are the things you might want to do now? >> things i might want to do. i need to get clothes. really just the basic thing, fundamental things people overlook on a daily basis. i need to build my life back. >> i want to ask ryan and bill did you ever expect this to happen this quickly? most people thought it was going to take months.
7:09 am
>> we're quite surprised actually. we thought it would morelikely happen today if it was going to happen. it was a question if it was going to happen, it was when it was going to happen. yeah we're surprised. we're so excited. absolutely. bill what about aaron who has been on this case from the beginning on 48 hours? >> just did an excellent job. they were the leaders and ones that brought attention to this case back in 2006. they started filming during the trial in 2005 and stayed with it all the way through. that means so much to us. >> absolutely. >> that was tremendous. >> congratulations to you and your family and your father and your attorney who fought so hard to make this happen. also to our own erin who's coverage for 48 hours led i think to the attorney who helped do so much.

7:35 am
start with you. do you think we have this frarn sis effect? do you think the church is changing because of pope francis? >> you bet there's aen from sis effect norah. i see it all the times. i can't walk down the streets of our beloved new york without people saying, hey, thanks for pope francis. you guys did a good job. we love him. and i hear from our parish priests from interest front line. they tell me the crowds in sunday mass are up, confession lines are longer and teen collections are going up. now, that is good news. so bring it on. >> in what order? >> bishop kurtz, it's great to see you. we've talked with cardinal dolan before and congratulations on this challenge that has been bestudied on you. >> thanks, charlie. thank you. >> tell me what the pope is saying when he says i want you to warm hearts and heal wounds
7:36 am
and how do you carry that as a mandate from him? >> great question, charlie. basically, charlie, what the holy father is saying is see the person first and accompany that person. the way we warm hearts and heal woulds is first by acknowledging the person in front of us. and i think all the photographs and videos and youtube and all the different ways in which people are seeing the pope is that he's not just saying it. he is accompanying people. and people really are let's say, taken by they because they're acknowledge and want to belong. there's a place for everyone it's great message of the new evangelization evangelization. i'm thrilled. >> cardinal dolan, i want to ask you about something the pope has done recently. he recently sent out a survey a
7:37 am
questionnaire to the 1 billion catholics around the world asked for your opinion on the host of interest including same sex contraception contraception, divorce. why ask about these issues. i mean isn't the church clear about this? >> you're right, norah. what he's asking is how can we present it better? how can we reach out with love and compassion with those who fine it difficult to live up to church teaching. this is all in preparation of what we call the sined. now, pope francis is shrewd. he said the people who know about the people who know about marriages best are, guess who husbands and wives, mothers and faers. so he said to them to ask them how they can be more compelling
7:38 am
in its beautiful liberating teaching about married life and family. it's good to ask them how we can best reach those who are having trouble accepting the timeless teaching of the faith. he's a shrewd teacher himself and i'm glad he's done this. >> do you think god sent this pope because he's concerned about the church. >> i'm sorry. >> i said do you think your god sent this pope because he was concerned about his church? >> i would think so. you bet. god is always concerned about the church and the people of israel. i'd like to say every pope, lord knows the ones i can remember with love and gratitude, paul vi john paul ii benedict xvith. all of them are gifts. all of them are signs of god through the church. yep, that's how i look at pope francis. >> let me ask you.
7:39 am
the pope says he'd like to create a spot for a woman in the church. that said, he could appoint a female cardinal. what would that be like to have a women in the mix? how would that happen? >> did she call you cardinal kurtz? >> norah, have you spoken to the holy father? >> she has her sources. >> i'm catholic. >> norah, the holy father has certainly made it clear that we need to expand our gratitude for and our awareness of the great gifts of women within the church. now, how that's going play out, we're still at the very early stages of it but certainly there's going to be -- i can't help but believe there's going to be a presence. i don't think there's been any structural changes mentioned now, but i think our holy father
7:40 am
is in tent and god bless us because as you remember -- maybe you don't recall that about 20 years ago, maybe a little longer, john paul ii2ii had a very beautiful letter on the dignity of women and that's what we need to practice. that's what pope francis needs to do. >> all right. great to see both of you. thanks for joining us. >> see you soon i hope. and should trainers at seaworld be compared to pro athletes? we'll look at the

7:46 am
other sports. >> it's a very good point to make. why us and why not nfl or nascar. let's face it the show is much more spectacular when the trainer is in the water than when they're just onstage. >> reporter: it's essential to the product offered by seaworld and is indeed the reason why trainers and audiences have been drawn to seaworld for nearly 50 years. trainering still get close enough to feed and train the animals but do not get in the water. the government argued killer whale behavior is simply too unpredictable.edly dragged to the bottom of the pool until he swam to safety. and another was attacked. government lawyers wrote in their brief that 40-plus years' history at the seaworld parking wrote of occasion avocation that

the republican party is in search of a winner and a winning formula. joe scarborough has some recommendations. in 1994 he was the first republican congressman elected by his florida district in 120 years. >> look at joe scarborough. still got that hair. >> oh, my god. >> for the past six years he's been debating politics and policy as host of "morning joe" on msnbc. he has a new book. joe scarborough joins us at the table. >> great to be here. >> we're glad to have you here. >> thank you. yourself, as i love this proudly defiant republican, the way forward begins with a look back. what should we be looking back for? >> well i would personally
8:19 am
recommend republicans look back to when they won elections. we've lost five out of the last six when it comes to the popular vote. before that we won five out of the last six. there's a reason why. people like reagan nixon, the whole watergate thing, and ike figured out how to make conservative connect with middle america. they were pragmatic. they were conservative ideologically but they were pragmatic politically. >> isn't it always true that when a party seems like it is in bad shape, it is a candidate somebody comes along as clinton did, as reagan did, it's always a candidate that changes a party? >> you're exactly right. i'm glad you brought up clinton because people ask, well has any party ever gone so far astray as the republican party is right now? yes. democrats did it as you remember. i mean, they got clobbered every four years in the '80s and early '90s. it took them getting routed for 12 years before they finally said, you know what we're going
8:20 am
to get a southerner who's a southern baptist who's conservative to moderate and we're going to nominate him. >> joe, you do write that reagan knew that conservative ideology worked best when married to moderate temperament. who's out there in the republican party who's like that now? >> well, obviously people are going to be looking at chris christie. what i find interesting is chris christie won the hispanic vote he won women despite the fact that he's the first pro life candidate to governor in new jersey since roe v. wade became law in 1973. >> he had a weak opponent. >> he had a weak opponent but that didn't just happen by chance. there are a lot of democrats who would have liked to have been governor in new jersey. >> they said the turnout wasn't that high either. >> whatever. come on. >> they do say -- >> you know why, a lot of depressed democrats say it. there is no spinning this. chris christie did a great job in a state that barack obama dominated. again, the reason why is because chris christie figured out how to blend conservatism with
8:21 am
pragmatism and he appealed to everybody. you know ronald regan won 49 states because he had the ted cruzs of the party and the colin powells of the party under the same big tent. >> you're talking about under the same tent. i talk to republicans who i know you know this said let's have this fight. let's have the fight. they had the fight in the alabama special elections where business interests went out and they backed someone to defeat the tea party candidate and the business interests won. and they're using that as you know, the republican party saying this can be a model for the national elections. is it going to be we all live in the same tent? is it going to be a fight? >> it depends. does the republican party want to win or lose? i'm an alabama fan. there's a reason why nick sabine keeps winning national championships. he obsesses on one thing, winning national championships. >> then along comes florida state. >> and we beat them too! even though i'm from northwest florida. but i am partially serious. you win when you obsess about
8:22 am
winning. you change america when you obsess about changing america. and we can't change america if we're having ideological fights. >> but is it inevitable when you have ted cruz and even rick perry out of the same state who want to be president? >> i'm not too concerned about rick perry's footprint in national politics in the future. >> are you concerned about ted cruz's? >> no, i'm not. you know what ted cruz baptism of fire. ted cruz learned an awful lot and he learned what ronald regan and ike knew. you can only push the american people so far. >> what about the democrats, is it inevitable that hillary will be the nominee? >> i don't think it is. everybody thought -- everybody that is saying it's inevitable that she's going to be the nominee today were saying it was going to be inevitable in 2006 and then they talked to the "new york times" and other democrats started saying, i kind of agree with what he said. i don't think that it's a fait accompli. >> which raises a question? does it have to be a woman and
8:23 am
therefore elizabeth warren? >> if you want to excite true believers, get elizabeth warren out on the campaign trail. we interviewed her up at fenway and i turned to mika halfway through and said she's about as good as i've seen. she's a natural. >> then there's you. people look at you on the program, people look at you in congress and they look at how you talk about politics and they say joe scarborough wants to be president. and a lot of this is about -- >> a rotary club. >> two things that in fact his television experience is a good thing. given him a national platform. that's good if you want to run for president. they say that. on the other hand, they say if you're in television all the time, you give so much ammunition to somebody who may want to oppose a candidacy. >> i've only said on tv what i believe. >> yeah. >> there are a couple of issues that obviously if i ran in the republican primary i'm sure a lot of gun owners would be asking me my positions after
8:24 am
newtown and i'm fine with it. it's not like i would go out and change my positions. >> are you interested in running? >> down the road i am. i have a 10-year-old daughter kate we were talking about before. kate has let me know, she's done enough moving around and i'm not allowed to get into office until she's in high school. >> that's not a problem. >> i'm going to have to compromise. how about the slogan go with joe. yo, joe. always welcome here. >> good i'll come tomorrow. >> do you and mika travel together everywhere? >> everywhere. >> what are you reading? >> i'm between a rock and the right. >> good to see you. joe scarborough, we thank you. >> thanks a lot. >> "the right path" is on sale wherever you like to buy your boots. you might remember seeing
