While conducting vetting research, I came across this recent attack on Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. It is of note because of who she is and Voice America sponsoring her , along with Oprah favoring her.
While discussing the bust of the Silk Road, Alvarez goes out of his way to link Assange and Snowden to the Silk Road.
BTW, a quick side note; this guy has an eerie profile that matches guys like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, which makes me wonderer we are getting a peek into a generational shift in thinking about markets and the government that could have some really scary consequences.
Ahh yea, like scary young lonely white guys
with the smarts to cause some serious damage
and who are up to no good. Somebody get them a girl friend, please.
The program concludes by joking about the silk road is what happens when young people do not have jobs.

It is the closing segment to the show.
She is best known for her controversial book, The Watchman’s Rattle, which offers an evolutionary explanation for modern problems such as government gridlock, terrorism, obesity, the decline in education, violence, etc.
and The New York Times speculated whether Costa would be “Oprah’s Next Star.”
The success of The Watchman’s Rattle led to a syndicated weekly radio news program called The Costa Report. The program is characterized by its nonpartisan nature. Each week Costa interviews newsmakers ranging from Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, Vint Cerf, and Alan Dershowitz to Michael Dukakis, John R. Bolton and Noam Chomsky, in search of solutions to global challenges. The program is in its third season and airs in Chicago, Seattle, Tucson, San Jose, Portland and other metro areas throughout the United States.
In 2011, The Costa Report was syndicated by The Business TalkRadio Network  and VoiceAmerica.
