'Left, Right & Center': The Latest From Boston, Gun Bills Go Down

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the urge to jump to sweeping conclusions about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. President Obama calls the attacks acts of terror. Is that an accurate description? Charles Krauthammer of The Washington Post thinks he shouldn’t have used that language yet.

Gun control legislation goes down in the Senate. Economists Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff of Harvard make an epic Excel error. And host Matt Miller introduces his new podcast, “This…Is Interesting.”

Joining Miller and Scheer this week are Ramesh Ponnuru of National Review on the right and Chrystia Freeland of Thomson Reuters Digital in the center.
