Trevor Timm is executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and a lawyer and activist fighting for free speech and government transparency. Timm is a prolific writer whose work has appeared in The Guardian, Salon, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera, Foreign Policy, Harvard Law and Policy Review, Politico, and PBS MediaShift. 

 

Freedom of the Press, and Freedom of Speech are in the First Amendment, and they're vital to the definition of the United States and what it stands for. So why aren't journalists who speak out for government transparency safe and comfortable inside our nation's borders? Trevor Timm fights for those rights with the Freedom of the Press Foundation. Whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning shouldn't be intimidated to speak the truth to U.S. citizens, and people who so much as visit Wikileaks shouldn't be tracked. Cenk Uygur talks about all this and more in this special interview with Trevor Timm in TYT's series on civil liberties and national security.

Stephen Cohen is a professor of Russian Studies and History at New York University, one of the nation's foremost experts on Russian-American relations and the author of nine books on Russian history, including his latest, "Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives: From Stalinism to the New Cold War." He's also a contributor to The Nation Magazine, and with his wife, The Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, recently traveled to Russia to personally interview American dissident Edward Snowden.

 

Cohen has been a vocal critic of US/NATO policy over the Ukraine crisis, as well as US media's depiction of Putin as the aggressor and Ukraine the victim. What is the true standing of Russia as an international power? Do you agree with Professor Cohen on the Russian-Ukranian conflict? and Russia's popular image? Is he indeed a "Putin apologist" as his critics have said? 

 

Cenk Uygur has a thorough interview and discussion on Russia with Stephen F. Cohen, Professor of Russian Studies at NYU.

Valerie Baber is a sex coach, former erotica model and actress, and was part of the infamous Emperor's Club as a companion, or as you might say, an escort. As she explains, her job was not what you might automatically think! Valerie has a very non-judgmental take on sexuality-- what formed it, and what experiences got her there? Why is there such a stigma and high price on sexuality?

Valerie talks about her fascinating life breaking away from her Bible-belt family, experiences with nude-dancing, and how she wound up at the infamous New York Emperor's Club. Was Eliot Spitzer "Reckless?" Who was paying $20,000 a night for sex? What did these men want?

Valerie Barber discusses all this and what's in her book, "Notorious VIP : Confessions of an Emperor's Club Companion," with Cenk Uygur in this eye-opening interview.

Our democracy is in danger. The influence of big money over our government grows steadily as the power of individual American citizens weakens every day. Due to historic Supreme Court decisions, giant contributions from wealthy individuals and corporations shapes who gets elected and what they do once in office. Big money increasingly dominates our economic, environmental, and social policies. It's time for Americans to take back their government.​
