‘America’s Lawyer’: Mike Papantonio to host legal show on RT America
Trial lawyer hall-of-famer Mike Papantonio is joining RT America, and will host a new primetime weekly show called ‘America’s Lawyer’, beginning in November 2016.
On his show, Papantonio will examine and expose untold truths in corporate and environmental legal cases with a no-holds-barred approach in addressing bad lawyers and corruption among federal and state judges.
“This is going to be a big show,” Papantonio told RT America. “It’s going to have massive legs from the standpoint of bumping up the story to where we put it out in front of the corporate media. At some point, the saturation level becomes that which they have to tell the story at last.”
The show “will tell the stories nobody else would have the chance to hear about” due to corporate-controlled media and will “interview lawyers handling the cases,” Papantonio added.
Mike Papantonio is the past president of the National Trial Lawyers Association and was inducted into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame in 2015. He is a senior partner of Levin Papantonio – one of the largest plaintiffs’ law firms in America – that has handled mass tort cases involving pharmaceutical drugs, asbestos, breast implants, factory farming, securities fraud, tobacco and others.
‘America’s Lawyer’ is recorded in Pensacola, Florida.
