Snowden: Hero, traitor, or something else?


Melissa Harris-Perry discusses the latest news on NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who is still on the run from U.S. authorities. Snowden’s supporters say he is a whistleblower, a hero who has done something brave in the public interest. But to defend those ideals, does he need to face the consequences? John Nichols, Washington correspondent for the Nation Magazine, Barbara Arnwine, Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Attorney Raul Reyes of NBC Latino, and Caroline Fredrickson of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy join the table.
