Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald tells the story of whistleblower Edward Snowden in a new book called No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State. Greenwald is also the author of How Would a Patriot Act? and With Liberty and Justice for Some. He is a former constitutional law and civil rights litigator. And, since he began breaking the stories of the NSA’s mass surveillance he has taken on a new role as a founding editor of the new media outlet, The Intercept.
He recently won the 2013 Polk Award for national security reporting. And in April 2014, Greenwald and his colleagues at The Guardian received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Glenn Greenwald was recently in Los Angeles for a book tour event and spoke with Uprising host Sonali Kolhatkar.
