Editor’s note: The following video is a clip from a 19-part series filmed at a Truthdig and KPFK co-sponsored event in Los Angeles recently. The discussion features Oliver Stone, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director, and Robert Scheer, Truthdig’s editor in chief. The two talk about “The Putin Interviews,” a new Showtime series by Stone, as well as the published transcript, for which Scheer wrote the foreword. We are publishing one video per day. This is the 15th installment.
In the clip above, Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer discusses different points in history in which the U.S. government selectively leaked information to media.
On Wednesday, watch the next clip in the series, in which Oliver Stone talks about the importance of WikiLeaks' Julian Assange.
