UpFront - Reese Erlich on Bahrain, Syria, and what's left of the Arab Spring

How much money does it take for a guy like Wayne LaPierre to block gun control bills? We talk to investigative journalist Suevon Lee of Propublica about how the gun lobby spends, and where they spend it.

A political history of the movie industry: Sonali Kolhatkar interviews David Spanner about his book Hollywood Inc. and the Rising of Independent Film.

Independent Journalist Reese Ehrlich is just back from a trip covering what he calls the forgotten uprising of the arab spring – the civil revolt in US-friendly Bahrain. Hel joins us in-studio to talk about that, plus the latest from Syria.

Plus: A tribute to singer, activist, producer, and lifelong friend of KPFA Jon Fromer.
