On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks with Jesselyn Radack, lawyer for US intelligence whistleblower Daniel Hale.
The bipartisan onslaught against the press — Barack Obama used the Espionage Act eight times against whistleblowers, more than all other previous administrations combined — by criminalizing those within the system who seek to inform the public is ominous for our democracy. It is effectively extinguishing all investigations into the inner workings of power.

I keep hoping we might find integrity in government, but it seems elusive.
