Glenn Greenwald, former Constitutional and Civil Rights Litigator joins McChesney on Sunday


Glenn Greenwald is a former Constitutional and civil rights litigator and is the author of two New York Times bestselling books on the Bush administration. His recent book, With Liberty and Justice for Some, is a look at what he calls America's two-tiered system of justice, where political and financial elites are rarely punished for financial crimes, yet ordinary Americans are subject to the world's largest and most merciless penal state. Greenwald was named by The Atlantic as one of the 25 most influential political commentators in the nation. He is the recipient of the first annual I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism, and is the winner of the 2010 Online Journalism Association Award for his investigative work on the arrest and detention of Bradley Manning.
