    Prior to the publication of his new book, Edward Snowden announced a small media campaign, appearing on CBS and MSNBC on September 16 - one of the first face-to-face interviews with the famous whistleblower on US media in years.

    Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden is taking part in a video conference with his Berlin readers to present his new book ‘Permanent Record’.

    In his book, the famous whistleblower tells a story of his life, how he decided to turn whistleblower and his life in Russia.

    Snowden has been in self-imposed exile in Russia since 2013, when he leaked a trove of highly classified information from the National Security Agency regarding global surveillance programs conducted by the US government, sparking widespread concerns about national security and personal privacy.
