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: investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill will be here to tell us why US forces should be concentrating on the crisis in Yemen instead of the Civil War in Libya.
We’ll also talk with John Amato, founder of the Crooks and Liars blog about the looming government shutdown that Republicans will impose if Democrats don’t agree to cut almost every social program in America’s budget.
Ari Berman from The Nation magazine will tell us about President Obama’s re-election campaign, and why he’s decided to abandon the grassroots tactic that helped elect him in 2008.
We’re also going to hear from Justin Jones – a 17 year old political activist from Alabama who’s using the citizens’ media to fight the GOP.
