Okay, everyone reading this who has heard of Ben Swann, please raise your hand. Hmm, I see there are not too many of you.
Well, I suggest you find out about Ben Swann on your own because I'm too lazy to write a long bio about him. The info is available and it's worth knowing. Suffice it to say, he is a different kind of journalist. He was employed in the mainstream media until recently when he went "off the grid."
The story below is about the issues surrounding Edward Snowden. It's not about Snowden himself. It's not coverage you will find elsewhere. It's intelligent, it's thought provoking, and it's consistently like that with Ben Swann's reporting.
I must warn you, the video seems to change from day to day from one topic to another for reasons this techno-idiot blogger hasn't figured out yet. So you may have to go to his website to see it. The code I'm using seems to point to his site in general rather than the individual video itself.
But even if this video is on a different topic, I'd bet plenty that whatever it is will be well done and interesting anyway. And you can be certain it will be consistent in it's focus on freedom issues. And that's the whole point of this blog.
