My guest today is blogger, peace activist activist, author, David Swanson.

Joan Brunwasser: Welcome back to OpEdNews, David. We last spoke back in January Bernie and the Media: No Love Lost.Wikileaks later revealed proof of media collusion with the DNC and Clinton campaign, so you were right on target with that one, but that ship has now sailed. This time I'd like to talk with you about your latest piece What Hillary Clinton Privately Told Goldman Sachs [10.15.16]. How do we finally know what happened behind closed doors?

And of course it took WikiLeaks to make them public whereas the New York Times was able to get a story on Trump's tax forms.
