And Roy Wally didn't press charges.

It's like an angry circle jerk, where one guy likes writing and the other guy likes talking.
All they are doing is promoting themselves...

greenwald is one of those mistakes nature vomits up once in a while.

there was a time it would have been shocking that glenn greenwald cared about ratings let alone using it as a means to denigrate someone but alas those times are long gone

I'm embarrassed that I read that.

"Ur crazed"
"No U! UR CRAZED"

Pfffft.

Can't wait to read about GG dead in a closet after some coke and AA.
He seems like the type.

Anyone wanna take the bet?

You know, I don't LIKE Glenn Greenwald, and I don't know this Brian Stelter guy...but reading that in more-or-less a vacuum, I just wanna get 'em in a room and bonk their heads together until candy comes out.

At least PRETEND to be respected, mature journalists if you don't want me to disregard your contributions to my infostream. "Mommy he pushed me" doesn't play on the monkey bars; it sure ain't gonna play between two white male millionaires pretending to uphold a tradition of integrity.

JFC - take a happy-go-lucky guy, family man, takes them on zany cross country adventures, wait a couple decades and *BAM* - we're all left scratching our heads wondering what went wrong.

His BIL, Eddie, went off the deep end as well.

If either were smart, one of them would delete every tweet so it makes the other guy look like a crazy street corner guy yelling at passing cars.

b2theory: Glenn Greenwald might be the primary reason I dislike Snowden


I can think of many reasons to dislike Greenwald, at least the 2015-2021 version. I can't think of a good reason to dislike Snowden. Snowden did important, essential work, that protected democracy around the world (while the USa lied by making their spying sound like an internal, domestic matter only). Snowden protected ordniary people's finances and personal security more than the USA ever has (before him we did not know, for sure, what the USA was doing with all of the world's hosuehold data).
 
2021-06-03 5:48:28 PM  
Greenwald's tweets are indistinguishable from Trump tweets but with better spelling and grammar

Snowden picked Greenwald. That was clearly a mistake from the very beginning, but then again nobody's perfect.

Greenwald's right about something:  our media is broken.  No matter how much you dislike him, he's a damn sight better than CNN.  The media, cable news first and foremost, has spent the last few years behaving as if they're trying to prove that Trump had a valid point about them.  It ain't great.

Oh, so now Both Sides Are Bad, huh?! How dare you! Greenwald is a traitor and a Russian. Snowden is Putin's buttboy. Read the Mueller report. It's all in there.

Most of the people who follow Greenwald these days are nazis and other far righters.  Not surprising, given his 25 year history of going out of his way to defend nazis.

I thought the comment was pretty self explanatory.

I'm gonna wager a guess and say not many Nazis and right wingers are reading Glenn Greenwald. They might think they like him because he's got a bad case of Stigginitis, but he generally writes about nothing that overlaps with that worldview.

I just found it humorous that my Farkie was so dead on.

Due to my undying, nearly sexual love of capitalism, I've always been a bit to the right of most farkers. But during the Trump years you all whizzed passed me on the way to the right. It's really strange to see a bunch of self-proclaimed progressives and liberals defending corporate media stooges, shiatting on whistleblowers, poopooing environmental initiatives, rooting against universal healthcare, and otherwise towing the center-right Democratic line.

If you all hate Trump so much, why did you let him run off with your Overton window and your sanity?

Sometimes I'm amazed at the amount of straw people just have laying around to build men out of. I mean, where do you store it? Does it attract pests? There are so many logistical concerns...

I don't see how Greenwald's descent into goofyland is Snowden's fault.  Greenwald used to be a respected journalist, and it was logical for Snowden to turn to him at the time.

Greenwald was a well respected gay porn producer before Snowden chose him

Wrong, Glenn is quite popular amongst the nazi and alt-right crowd. Since his defense of Matthew Hale in the 1990s, to his appearing on Tucker Carlson's show today.

And maybe if I think all the people you are fans of are Nazis, it has more to do with the people you are fans of, rather than with me?

DIdn't Snowden run directly to the Chinese, then the Russians? The fact he's so tight with Moscow gives me pause. And it's why Greenwald loves him so much.

I mean, I can't identify with you, but I get the psychology behind it. As long as the bar is set to "better than Trump," you're in the clear. It's a very convenient worldview.

Odd how upset you got.
