Government, Business & Big Brother on CNBC

Excellent Tim Russert show on CNBC Saturday, 7pm & 10pm ET
Authors James Risen (State of War) and Robert O’Harrow, Jr. (No Place To Hide), on "Government, Business and Big Brother."
Russert, the Meet the Press journalist from MSNBC interviews the two authors on privacy, surveillance, RFID tracking, identity theft and NSA illegal wiretapping. There is currently no live link to the show or to a transcript.

It's great to see privacy issues making their way into mainstream media and hour long CNBC television shows.

From the Washington Post Bio for O'Harrow,

As a reporter for the Financial and Investigative staffs of the Post, Robert O'Harrow has carved out a data privacy beat and uncovered stories about the use of information that has led to changes in state and federal law. In 2000, O'Harrow was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize. He was a recipient of the 2003 Carnegie Mellon Cybersecurity Reporting Award.
From a bio of James Risen at Random House comes the following:
James Risen covers national security for The New York Times. He was a member of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting in 2002 for coverage of September 11 and terrorism.
Clearly these are not extremists, but rather Pulitzer prize nominated authors employed by two of the largest newspapers in the country. They put forward well-reasoned arguments against surveillance and put forward serious issues on privacy invasion in our society. America needs to pay attention and begin to get this monster under control.
