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

Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week: Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos, will be joining us to discuss President Obama’s State of the Union address, and we’ll see what grade the pioneer of liberal blogs gives his performance.

Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone magazine will be here to tell us why new Speaker of the House John Boehner is not as big of a threat to President Obama as the GOP wants us to believe.

Blogger and author David DeGraw will join us to discuss what he calls the “journalism of appeasement” – where journalists and members of the media sit idly by while the economic plight of average Americans remains completely ignored.

And Ramsay Adams from the Catskill Mountainkeepers will be joining us to discuss the dangers of a natural gas extraction method known as “fracking,” and we’ll find out how this procedure is poisoning drinking water supplies across America
