Zimmerman Trial Begins!
Nearly a year and a half after George Zimmerman either murdered Trayvon Martin, or shot him in self-defense, the trial has finally begun. Jury selection is underway, and if you want gavel to gavel coverage of the Zimmerman trial, you've come to the right place. We have live streaming right here on our web site. Just put in the keyword "Zimmerman" and you'll be there.
In addition, you'll have a chance to talk with me about the trial during "Bud Hedinger Live!", weekday mornings from 6 to 9, right here on FM104.5/AM540WFLA.
NSA Whistleblower Speaks!
We spent a lot of time on this morning's show focusing on the man who's just blown the cover off a top secret U.S. government program run by the NSA, the National Security Agency. Ed Snowden, a 29-year-old former CIA/NSA employee says he went public after concluding that NSA surveillance, supposedly targeting terrorists, had expanded beyond all reason, and threatened the personal privacy and individual liberty of all Americans.
Scroll down and check out the interview with Snowden. It's right below the latest edition of "Bud's Rants & Raves", where I give you my take on Snowden and this huge story, which continues to unfold.
