8/14 James C. Goodale: Fighting For The Press

August 14, 2013

James C. Goodale attorney the New York Times during the release Pentagon Papers explained why the defense establishment always defends secrecy, why President Obama has been played by the national security state, why secrecy is distinct from confidentiality, the Nixonian roots of today’s attacks on Edward Snowden and how aggressive the Obama Administration has been against transparency.

On The Better Half: two young children in PA are banned from speaking out against fracking, why the Obama Administration NSA review is a sham, Edward Snowden leaks keeps getting Congress to do its job, the NSA monitored journalists critical of American foreign policy, Rick Santorum says the term middle class is “Marxist” why college costs are rising and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
