While Julian Assange awaits news of his fate at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, which he entered a week ago when he applied for political asylum, RT airs the final episode of his pre-recorded talk show, "The World Tomorrow".
This final episode profiles intellectual giants Noam Chomsky and Tariq Ali who talk about wide ranging issues, including the Arab drive for freedom, the West's structural crisis and new hope coming from Latin America.
According to Ali, "Essentially what we've been witnessing is a contraction of politics. What we have in Western politics is neither the extreme left nor the extreme right, but an extreme centre."
