I was previously a constitutional law and civil rights litigator and am now a journalist. I am the author of three New York Times bestselling books -- "How Would a Patriot Act" (a critique of Bush executive power theories), "Tragic Legacy" (documenting the Bush legacy), and With Liberty and Justice for Some (critiquing America's two-tiered justice system and the collapse of the rule of law for its political and financial elites). My fifth book - No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State - will be released on April 29, 2014 by Holt/Metropolitan.

Various matters

Several people reported some difficulties participating in the Comment section over at Salon, so feel free to use the comment thread here to talk about whatever you want to talk about, including the posts I wrote today at Salon:

(1) A post regarding the hysterical attempt by right-wing pundits and bloggers to exploit the altered Reuters photographs far beyond their real significance;

(2) An analysis of the fundamental, and distastrous, contradiction at the heart of neoconservatism;

(3) A post concerning the anti-establishment aspect of the potential defeat of Joe Lieberman; and,

(4) A response to the truly horrific Op-Ed in the Wall St. Journal by New Republic Editor Marty Peretz on the Lieberman-Lamont race.

Also, for anyone in Denver, I will be on the Jay Marvin Show tomorrow morning [760 AM (KKZN)] at 7:05 am MST (9:05 am EST) to discuss the Lamont-Lieberman race. Anyone can listen to the live audio feed here.
