Fossil fuel industry working behind the scenes to reduce fuel economy standards

Mike Papantonio and Trial Magazine’s executive editor Farron Cousins take a look at Marathon Petroleum, an example of the fossil fuel industry quietly working behind the scenes to make sure that we keep certain policies in place, and to reduce fuel economy standards for cars.

And, later in the show, RT Correspondent Brigida Santos discusses the case of a Yemeni citizen who’s been detained at Guantanamo Bay for 17 years without charge, and is now petitioning the Supreme Court to review his case.

Plus, a discussion with legal journalist Mollye Barrows on an unexpected act of mercy in Tennessee.
