Fusion’s Jorge Ramos Goes Inside the CIA

Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 14.32.26Airing Tuesday night at 10 on Fusion (available in DC via RCN and Dish) will be a special edition of “AMERICA with Jorge Ramos” featuring interviews with CIA Director John Brennan, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), CIA analysts, and key players in the case against former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, accused of releasing one of the largest leaks of classified information in modern American history.

Recruitment is a major focus of the interview, as the intelligence agency works to bring in younger individuals with a sound technological understanding. Ramos also sits down with Justin Jackson, former deputy director for the National Clandestine Service, and the CIA’s Center for Mission Diversity Director Carmen Middleton who explain “how hiring new faces with different opinions ​actually benefits the organization.”


In addition to interviews inside Langley, Ramos ventures outside to former Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald – who first released Snowden’s files – as well as WaPo’s Barton Gellman and National Security Correspondent Greg Miller, The Guardian’s Defense and Security Correspondent Ewen MacAskill and U.S. National Security Editor Spencer Ackerman, Dragnet Nation author Julia Angwin, and ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero.

Last week, the NYTimes Bill Carter previewed Brian Williams‘ sit down with Snowden last month at a hotel in Moscow, which aired Wednesday, May 28 on NBC.
