Protest on “Russia Today”

On August 21, 2013, I was invited by the Kremlin-funded propaganda network Russia Today to discuss the sentencing of Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning. Things did not go as planned.

The incident, which I wrote about for The Washington Postreceived wide international media coverage. I discussed my motivations with Anderson Cooper.

And on the French version of the Daily Show:

The following week, in what seemed to be an attempt to make me look bad, RT aired footage of me speaking on a hot mic immediately after they cut off the live transmission. I’ll let you be the judge of who ended up looking like a fool.
