‘Left, Right & Center’: NSA Reform and Bezos Buys the Post

Posted on Aug 9, 2013

At a presidential news conference Friday, President Obama suggests changes to the National Security Agency surveillance policy. With four major categories of reform, he attempts to ease skepticism with an “amend it, don’t end it” approach. How did it go over?

Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of, announced this week that he will buy The Washington Post. Is this the beginning of the end for print journalism, or a breath of fresh air?

It’s the 68th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Should Obama have used it as an opportunity to talk about Iran or China’s nuclear capabilities?

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and host Matt Miller are joined on this week’s “Left, Right & Center” by Matthew Continetti, opinion editor of The Weekly Standard, who offers the conservative view.
