A timely discussion with Chris Hedges, Daniel Ellsberg, James Goodale and Sue Udry.
(Event starts at 5-minute point on video.)
The attempt to extradite Julian Assange to the United States for prosecution is a war against freedom of the press and our right to know. If the prosecution of Assange under the Espionage Act occurs, it will define journalism for the 21st Century. No journalist or publisher who exposes war crimes or corruption will be safe.
- Daniel Ellsberg of the Pentagon Papers
- James Goodale, the general counsel for the NY Times during the Pentagon Papers
- Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist
- Moderated by Sue Udry, Executive Director of Defending Rights and Dissent
