When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
New World Notes - Glenn Greenwald on Edward Snowden, NSA Spying, and the Hypocrisy of the Press
This week on New World Notes: radio program #316, March 25, 2014, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. (and on Wednesday from 8:30 to 9:00 p.m.), host Kenneth Dowst acknowledges the work of journalist Glenn Greenwald.
Greenwald brought to light the story of Edward Snowden and the US government's top-secret program of spying on every American. In this week's show, Greenwald talks about Snowden and about the government's surveillance, assault on civil liberties, and hypocrisy about leaks.
And he talks about the disgraceful behavior of the US "mainstream" news media--dedicated to serving those power rather than holding them accountable.
With an introduction by KD, reflecting on the news media's unanimous and unceasing Putin-bashing since before the Olympics.
Greenwald's words are taken from a video interview conducted in Rio de Janeiro in November 2013.
