I am certain it has had exactly the impact he wanted it to have. Approx. 40% of Death row inmates in Texas are black, and we all know how this "man", (and I use the term loosely), felt about black people. I'm sure he's delighted, wherever he is, that he managed one last act of nastiness against them.

As I understand it, everything about Willingham's story was eventually verified by arson experts. The one lie Willingham eventually admitted was that he couldn't bring himself to go into the younger children's rooms which were already ablaze. And as one investigator put it, people should withhold judgment as to what they would do in the face of a major fire; the instinct to flee tends to be overpowering.

No worries, I AM big-time pro-dp...
The forensic investigatory tools don't point to innocence or that the fire was set accidentally, the new reports only point to inconclusive evidence on one small part of the case. The 5th Circut Court of Appeals said that even if you believe the Hurst report there was enough evidence even without the forensic evidence to convict Willingham.
Willingham changed his story 27+ times & even his own attorney has come out and said that Willingham is/was guilty of the murders (“The real fact of the matter is that Willingham was guilty. He wasn’t innocent. He really set that fire and killed those kids.” -Martin).
Besides, Willingham was given the DP for multiple child murder, not arson/murder.
