Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - We talked a lot about Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old computer technician who identified himself as the leak of the NSA Surveillance Program, and whether or not he is a whistleblower or if he broke the law in exposing the surveillance program.  We'll speak with C.
