8/2 Glenn Greenwald, Normalizing Extremism

August 2, 2012

Glenn Greenwald was on the program today, talking about his new article the “Normalization of Extremism.” Glenn and Sam talked about how policies once thought to be well outside of the mainstream such as torture and kill lists have become normalized in today’s politics and how some of our worst cultural nightmares of a surveillance state are becoming true.

On The Better Half:
Sam talked about “hate a Gay eat a plastic chicken day” or as its also known Chick-fil-A appreciation day, Mitt Romney’s absurd new ad on the auto bailout and reminisced about interviewing Gore Vidal and other greats during the Air America days
