The Alyona Show: Populist Racists
Georgetown University Professor Christopher Chambers sits down with Alyona to debate whether America's populist Tea Party movement is just another form of racism in the United States. Then, Alyona talks with RT correspondent Lauren Lyster who interviewed some of the thousands of homeless men and women roam the streets of Washington every day looking for food and shelter. Later, resident media guru Joel Silbermann joins Alyona to break down the significance and messages seen in this year's Super Bowl advertisements. And finally, when President Obama took office in January of 2009, he had his plate full with foreign policy concerns. His approach differed from that of former President George W. Bush as he attempted to soften relations and ease tensions around the world.

Here to discuss the differences between year one and two and the effectiveness of each strategy; constitutional lawyer Mark Levine and Michael Lieberman of the Truman National Security Project.
