TAVIS SMILEY | Chris Hedges | June 8, 2015


Published on Jun 9, 2015

Last night, I was joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges. In his near two decades’ worth of experience as a foreign correspondent for prominent news outlets like The New York Times and NPR, Hedges has covered critical issues from all around the world, including his groundbreaking reporting on global terrorism. The bestselling author’s latest text is called “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt.”

In the clip below, Hedges describes how the media’s inability to do its job has weakened our democracy, and why the public’s loss of faith in traditional mechanisms of power has placed us on the brink of revolution.
