Ever wonder how many millionaires live in your state in 2014? Six of the ten top millionaire-producing states control about half of the wealth in the United States. Where and how do the top one-ten thousandth (0.0001) percent live in the wealthiest nation of the world?
Jim Risen, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005 for exposing the NSA warrantless eavesdropping program, has long been one of the nations most aggressive and adversarialinvestigative journalists. That alone makes the book very worth reading, but what independently interests me about Risen is how he seems to have become entirely radicalized by what hes discovered in the last decade of reporting, as well as by the years-long battle he has had to wage with the U.S. Government to stay out of prison. He now so often eschews the modulated, safe, uncontroversial tones of the standard establishment reporter (such as when he called Obama the greatest enemy of press freedom in a generation and said about the administrationspress freedom attacks: Nice to see the US government is becoming more like the Iranian government).

Police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been ordered to respect the press after months of allegations of law enforcement repressing free speech. A federal judge upheld the media and public’s right to film police on duty Friday, ahead of an anticipated ruling on whether an officer could be charged for the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown. Amid protests in Ferguson earlier this year, media advocacy groups and protesters accused police of suppressing free speech and cracking down on journalists.
Within hours, the journalists issued a correction, as they realised that employee B referred to the Ministers other assistant, Gsli Freyr Valdrsson. As RWBs statement notes, Gsli Freyr is now on probation, having since confessed and been sentenced to eight months in prison for the leak. The organization urges Icelands government to amend these laws.
