  1. Glenn Greenwald’s New Memoir Recounts Drama Behind NSA Leak

    In his new memoir, No Place to Hide, reporter Glenn Greenwald reveals how he came across the biggest scoop of the century — the NSA spying scandal — and nearly blew it. Greenwald initially brushed off NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden until he was given a thumb drive filled with top-secret documents. While narrating the story behind the story, the reporter discusses being dismissed as a “radical” even as he fought for seemingly conservative ideals by demanding that government respect Americans’ constitutional right to privacy.
