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, US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse will be here to tell us about the revolving door between industry and the government that has crippled our ability to properly regulate companies like BP and Massey Coal who are killing innocent workers and our environment.

Danny Schechter the News Dissector will be here to tell us how our society not only protects, but actually rewards corporate criminals – like those who caused our financial meltdown and the executives at BP who are poisoning the Gulf of Mexico.

Eric Boehlert from Media Matters for America will join us to talk about the increasingly crazy rhetoric coming out of Fox News, and how their defense of BP during this oil spill might have finally pushed the network over the cliff.

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, former Louisiana state Senator Ben Bagert and Dr. David Kerstetter from Nova Southeastern University’s Oceanographic Center will be here to update us on the BP Oil Spill.
