Your Call: Democracy vs national security
On the June 5th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss coverage of "the USA Freedom Act" limiting the NSA's domestic surveillance powers, and the new declassified interviews with a former Guantanamo Bay detainee detailing torture. We’ll also discuss Tunisian women's efforts to seek justice for decades of police violence and rape. We will be joined by investigative journalist Mark Danner and NY Time’s Carlotta Gall. Join us on the next Your Call, with Matt Martin, and you.
