‘Left, Right & Center:’ Guns and the Naked Fiscal Cliff
Posted on Dec 21, 2012
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other panelists discuss the NRA’s call for armed security at schools, violent media’s relationship to gun violence and the push for new gun control legislation on this week’s “Left, Right & Center.”
Also in the discussion, a look at House Speaker John Boehner’s failed alternative plan to raise taxes on the very wealthy to frustrate President Obama’s proposal to raise taxes broadly in the ongoing so-called fiscal cliff conversation.
Washington Post columnist Matt Miller, Thomson Reuters Digital editor-at-large Chrystia Freeland, and Newsweek/Daily Beast editor and former special assistant to former president George W. Bush, David Frum, join Scheer to deliberate over these topics and more.
