About this event
Join Glenn Greenwald -- former constitutional rights attorney, best-selling author (How Would a Patriot Act? and A Tragic Legacy), and one of today’s most incisive and probing political journalists -- in conversation with Salon founder David Talbot. Glenn will be discussing his newest book, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR SOME: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful, a ferociously argued indictment of the state of the American legal system. Greenwald charges both parties, the courts and the media with creating an oligarchy for political and financial elites. These groups, Greenwald shows, are now afforded not merely strategic advantages within the legal system, but actual immunity in the face of the most egregious criminality.
