Edward Snowden CIA Hollywood“Hidden in Plain Sight: Snowden Myth Unraveling” with Tom Secker

On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Tom Secker, host of ClandesTime, and author of the book Secrets, Spies, and 7/7. Guillermo and Tom break down what it means for Glenn Greenwald and Team Snowden to be entering into a media and business relationship with Sony Pictures Entertainment, set to transform the Snowden narrative No Place to Hide into Hollywood legend.

We discuss the “open secret” of Hollywood’s reciprocal relationship with the US government and the national security state in the creation of pro-establishment propaganda, and Greenwald’s never-ending hypocrisy in teaming up with Sony and Amy Pascal, producers of the film Zero Dark Thirty, which Greenwald once called a “CIA hagiography” and “pernicious propaganda.” As the Snowden narrative unravels and more questions arise, will the master story-tellers in Hollywood step in to rewrite history and shape your reality?
