Episode 396

­In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the closing of the American mind, as intellectual troublemakers like Aaron Swartz are locked up for decades instead of being free to innovate. They look at the two-tiered justice system under which people like Swartz are persecuted, while political benefactors on Wall Street are allowed to commit an endless array of financial crimes without any fear of prosecution. In the second half of the show, Max talks to Alex Jones about his appearance on Piers Morgan’s show on CNN. They also discuss the targeting of activists and the role of new media in taking on the industry's aging dinosaurs.
