'Left, Right & Center': Eric Holder Meets the Press

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists eye Attorney General Eric Holder’s off-the-record meeting regarding possible changes at the DOJ.

The IRS targeting of conservatives is just a symbol of too much government power, says National Review editor Rich Lowry, who joins the show on the right. In a tremendous societal shift, a Pew study shows 40 percent of households have mothers as breadwinners. The state of Medicare is looking up. It will be fully funded until 2026. Marines in Afghanistan are losing late-night hot meals. Russian economist Sergei Guriev flees Russia, saying he no longer feels safe there. Lawrence Lessig pushes for small dollar funding of politics.

Scheer, Lowry and host Matt Miller are joined by Thomson Reuters’ Chrystia Freeland in the center.
