Susan Smith is serving a life sentence for killing 3-year-old
Michael and 14-month-old Alex in 1994 by strapping them into their
car seats and driving the car into a pond. She has not been
interviewed since being charged. On Wednesday's show, a Winfrey
staffer said she has been trying to arrange an interview.
Winfrey suggested on the show that Gov.-elect Nikki Haley could
change prison rules that prohibit media interviews.
Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said Thursday that Winfrey won't get
her wish. He says Smith got enough attention when she originally
claimed she was carjacked before the truth came out.
