(Studio: Don Lemon) Live discussion held with former mobster /“Blood Covenant” author Michael Franzese† about the public fascination with organized crime and the week’s mob-related news, including the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, the search in Michigan for the remains of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, the discovery of human remains at the New York home of the late Jimmy “The Gent” Burke††, and the death of “The Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini. [From Irvine, California, FRANZESE†- says he knew Burke and maybe ran into Bulger; describes the status of organized crime today; explains how close to reality movies and shows about the mob are.]
