De-Manufacturing Consent- Free Barrett Brown: Journalism is Now a Crime!

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Kevin Gallagher

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by the director of Free Barrett Brown, Kevin Gallagher. Guillermo and Kevin discuss the case of Barrett Brown, an eccentric author and journalist who caught the attention of the FBI through his work "embedded" with the hacktivist group Anonymous. Having spent over a year now in jail and gagged by a federal court, Brown faces a potential sentence of 105 years, the bulk of which is related to charges associated with pasting a link in a chat room. We explore the details of Brown's work and the information he uncovered through Project PM that he is no longer allowed to discuss: the shadowy world of private intelligence contractors, what they're working on, who they're working for, and what it means for your privacy, security, and liberty.

  1. Excellent interview, great show, probably one of the most important stories almost no one is aware of. Should follow up on this with a full show about The Free Flow of Information Act, or, as I like to call it, The Unmitigated Torrent of Propaganda by Actors Act. Or, The Criminalizing Investigative and Citizen Journalism as Acts of Terrorism Act. Anyways, one of my favorite shows in the short time I’ve been a subscriber.
