Despite being in hiding, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden has spent the week in the media spotlight after coming out as the source of sensational revelations about phone and computer surveillance by the agency. Also in the spotlight, The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who interviewed Snowden and broke the surveillance story. He’ll join us once again to give his take on the week’s coverage and respond to critics of his reporting. We’ll also discuss how the media has handled Snowden’s revelations with Paul Farhi of the Washington Post and Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times.
As jury selection continues in the George Zimmerman murder trial, we’ll discuss the case with former lawyer and anchor of CNN’s new morning show, New Day, Chris Cuomo.
Finally, we’ll look back at John Oliver’s first week filling in as host of The Daily Show with TIME’s James Poniewozik.
