'Left, Right & Center': July 4 and the Meaning of America
On this Independence Day-themed show, Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ponder the meaning of America. If our nation was founded by revolutionaries, what would they think of our current surveillance practices, economic opportunities, gay rights and foreign policy? Is NSA leaker Edward Snowden in the tradition of the founders of this country?
Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller are Byron York of The Washington Examiner with the conservative view and Chrystia Freeland of Thomson Reuters Digital offering the perspective from the center.
