And then there are the political videos. This year has given us a treasure trove of brilliant productions. These aren't your parents' [...]

The Nation magazine's Ken Klippenstein has been doing great work in covering this abuse of power, and is our guest today. Last week he wrote about how the DHS is going around the law to arrest journalists and legal protest observers in addition to their abduction of protesters off [...]
