The Young Turks breakdown Edward Snowden’s interview with NBC’s Brian Williams. Snowden discuss how whistleblowers throughout history like Daniel Ellsberg have always been falsely accused of placing the United States in grave danger. He also mentioned that the government exploited 9/11 for increasing surveillance programs, has no ties to Russia, and gives the definition to the word patriotism. Tell us what you thought of the interview in the comment section below.

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.
We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.
The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
