‘Dateline’ Interview with Robert F. Kennedy: Why Isn’t It On Tonight?

Tonight, Dateline was supposed to air an interview with Robert F. Kennedy to discuss his cousin’s role in the 1975 murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley. However, due to the horrific attacks in Nice, the interview will be moved to next Friday, July 22, and 10/9c. Instead, news anchor Lester Holt and his team will bring you the latest updates on the Nice terror attack.

Michael Skakel, who was also 15 at the time, was convicted of her death in 2002, and was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. In 2013, he was granted a new trial by a Connecticut judge and released on a $1.2 million bail. But many people think that the only reason Skakel was released is because of his ties to the Kennedy family. Last month, Robert F. Kennedy released a book in which he contends that his cousin is not guilty of Martha’s murder. Next week, he will discuss his relationship with Michael and why he is so sure that his cousin is innocent of the crime.
