“Jim has a way of breaking facts loose that is un-rivaled in this town. Its a shame that there seems to be no place for serious journalists in the mainstream media, but perhaps that will change. I have always counted on Redden to report the facts, with accuracy and objectivity.” . . .writes one fan about Jim Reddens work.

We will be asking Mr. Redden for his thoughts on why the media seems more and more to be falling down on their job.
Snitch Culture, Redden’s first book released in December 2000 is a must read for privacy buffs or anyone who wonders how we arrived in the surveillance society we find ourselves in today. The book is packed with facts about our “Snitch Culture” and traces the history of surveillance back to the very beginning
A great Interview with Jim Redden about his book here
Redden covers how the government recruits informants, private intelligence networks, surveillance technology (including facial recognition cameras), and some of the worst spy scandals in our history. This book is an invaluable reference manual for me!
It covers history, all about informants, political spying (both left and right), private intelligence networks, surveillance tech including facial recognition, school snitching and workplace spying and a whole lot more.
In his work as a journalist over the years, Jim has covered some intriguing murder mysteries and has much insight into the criminal justice system. He also has an interest in political movements
