Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss The New York Times’ call for clemency for Edward Snowden. National Review editor Rich Lowry, providing the perspective from the right, acknowledges that Snowden’s case is “ambiguous,” while insisting that he broke the law.

This week also brings a new liberal mayor to New York City. Host Matt Miller thinks we need a progressive resurgence, but calls Bill de Blasio’s agenda “timid and small.” And in the spirit of finding common ground in the new year, Miller, Lowry and Scheer agree that legal pot in Colorado is a good thing.
