This week’s Ring of Fire Radio, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and David Bender:  Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

This week on Ring of Fire Radio, Ed Schultz, the host of MSNBC’s The Ed Show will be here to tell us how he helped America overcome the conventional wisdom that liberal radio wasn’t viable, and became one of the pioneers of liberal media – Which he talks about in his new book “Killer Politics: How Big Money and Bad Politics Are Destroying the Great American Middle Class.”

Cenk Uygur from the Young Turks will be joining us to talk about the protest he led last week in Washington to convince the Treasury Department to force Goldman Sachs to return billions of dollars worth of bailout money that the company actually claimed they didn’t need.

Russell Mokhiber from the corporate Crime Reporter will be here to tell us about the possibility of prosecuting Don Blankenship and other executives from Massey Coal for the mine collapse earlier this year that claimed the lives of 29 men.

Thomas Kennedy Lowenstein, activist and author of the terrific new novel, The Ghost Detective (and a New Orleans resident), will join David to talk about the news of the week from the Gulf and Tony Hayward’s shocking lack of memory and accountability.

And our friend Thom Hartman will step back into the Ring with a completely updated version of his prescient and tremendously important book, “Unequal Protection: How Corporations Became “People” – And How You Can Fight Back.”  Buy this book and give it to EVERYONE you know!

And as part of Ring of Fire Radio’s on-going, exclusive coverage of the worst oil disaster in our nation’s history, Devastation in the Gulf, Daily Beast correspondent Rick Outzen will be here to give us an update on the oil washing ashore all along the Gulf Coast.
