First interview Kevin Zeese

Kevin Zeese, Co-Chair of Come Home America, discusses the verdict of Bradley Manning’s military trial; the serious attack on freedom of the press; Judge Denise Lind’s strange rulings (always favoring the prosecution) that could be overturned on appeal; the high-powered government witnesses scheduled to denounce Manning during the sentencing phase; and the tipping point in the battle between citizen and corporate media.

Second interview Daniel Ellsberg

Exclusive: the first reaction of Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers, to Bradley Manning’s acquittal on charges of “aiding the enemy,” but conviction under the espionage act, why journalism is still threatened, Manning’s motives, the positive consequences of his leaks — for instance ending America’s occupation of Iraq once and for all, and the importance of whistleblowers to a free society. (Duration: 19:32 — 4.5MB)
