‘Left, Right & Center’: Carlos Danger, an Economic Reboot and Insider Trading
Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists confront the unavoidable Carlos Danger. How many second chances should a former congressman get? Can New York City do better?
Elsewhere in the country, President Obama tries to declare an economic reboot. Is he part of the problem? Also, federal authorities indict hedge fund giant SAC Capital Advisors on criminal charges and the NSA surveillance program lives to see another day.
Scheer and host Matt Miller are joined by Rich Lowry, the editor of the National Review who gives the view from the right, and Chrystia Freeland, global editor at large for Thomson Reuters Digital who provides the center perspective.
