[Excuse the audio glitch in the first 60 seconds of the video: it fixes itself after that]
Over the last year, Democratic Party members of Congress have become increasingly explicit that Silicon Valley giants must either censor the material Democrats dislike or suffer legal and regulatory reprisals. The most recent example is one of the most egregious yet: Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman Adam Schiff demanded that Amazon stop promoting books on COVID they find offensive. The consequences — both political and legal — are grave.
Glenn Greenwald is a journalist, constitutional lawyer, and author of four New York Times best-selling books on politics and law. His most recent book, “No Place to Hide,” is about the U.S. surveillance state and his experiences reporting on the Snowden documents around the world. Glenn co-founded The Intercept but parted ways with the company in 2020 due to the company censoring his work. His work can now be found at Substack and Rumble.
