David Danzig of Human Rights First visits Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters to discuss Primetime Torture. Primetime Torture addresses negative fallout from the way that torture is presented on U.S. TV shows like "24", "LOST", "The Wire," "Sleeper Cell" etc. David works closely with military officials to develop educational tools to ensure that junior soldiers know that what they see on TV is meant to be entertainment and not replicated in the field. David also works closely with writers, producers, studio executives and others in Hollywood to begin a conversation about ways that torture and interrogation might be portrayed on TV that do not have negative repercussions and still hold the viewers interest.
