Folks on both the left and the right have a love-hate relationship with reporter and Intercept co-founder Jeremy Scahill. His brand of “adversarial” investigative journalism makes no exceptions – not for the nation’s most powerful, and especially not for those advocating for wars abroad. In this episode of #politicallyreactive, we talk with Jeremy about his refusal to sit on a panel with Milo Yiannopoulos on Real Time with Bill Maher, what it was like to interview Julian Assange for the Intercepted podcast, his thoughts on Russian involvement in U.S. politics, and the people who give him hope for the future (hint: it’s probably you!). Click “play” to find out why Jeremy has earned the title, “one-man truth squad”.
