Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the surprise agreement among the U.S., Russia and the EU. Does it mean anything? Scheer says yes, and that those hoping for a new Cold War won’t get one.

New polls show Hillary Clinton’s numbers are down, but Slate’s Mike Pesca says it’s more the case that the boost she got from being secretary of state has diminished. And what is the function of college athletics? Despite his belief in the free market, the Washington Free Beacon’s Matthew Continetti doesn’t believe we should pay athletes. It takes away from the original function of a university, he says.
