GUEST: JEFFREY ROSEN
A lot of constitutional issues have been in the news lately including revelations about government data mining, surveillance of media leaks, subpoenas of AP telephone records, the Supreme Court’s decision to allow police to use take DNA samples upon those they arrest. In addition, there’s this month’s upcoming and highly anticipated Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage, voting rights, affirmative action and more. Constitutional scholar JEFFREY ROSEN stops by Radio Times to discuss these issues and his new job. He’s just begun his position as President and CEO of the National Constitutional Center, a museum based on examining the Constitution of the United States, which provides forums for constitutional debates and many creative education programs to explore the Constitution. Rosen is a Professor of Law at George Washington University and is the legal affairs editor of The New Republic.
