Glenn Greenwald (l.), Edward Snowden (r)

Journalist Glenn Greenwald revealed the story of Edward Snowden and the US government's secret program of spying on every American. Here Greenwald talks about Snowden and about the government's surveillance, assault on civil liberties, & hypocrisy about leaks.

And he talks about the disgraceful behavior of the US "mainstream" news media--determined to serve those in power rather than to hold them accountable.

With an introduction by KD, on the US news media's unanimous and unceasing Putin-bashing since before the Olympics.

Greenwald's words are taken from a video interview conducted in Rio de Janeiro in November 2013.
