Tonight's episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three hours later), like so many others of late, begins with some gruesome business: the news that American journalist Steven Sotloff is the latest to have his head sawed off by the Islamic State (ISIL). Joining to discuss the evolving ramifications and descending Mideast chaos are Party Panelists Carrie Sheffield (Forbes contributor) and Joe DeVito (comedian). Later in the show, the duo is slated to gab about the spate of leaked celebrity nudes, and—even more searing to the naked eye—Eric Cantor's posh new gig at Moelis.
Have you heard about Russia's slow-motion invasion of Ukraine? Michael Weiss, of the Russian-media-reading The Interpreter, will join live from Kiev via some sort of crude telecommunications.
