Why Did Glenn Greenwald Get Scooped by the Washington Post in the Latest Snowden Revelation?

After foreshadowing the biggest Edward Snowden story yet, reporter Glenn Greenwald may have been silenced by Pierre Omidyar’s strong White House ties; reality TV workers have had a rough time of it; meanwhile, the child plastered on Nazi propaganda as the “perfect Aryan” was actually Jewish.

Fox Presses Its Attack on Obama

When Barack Obama first started running for the White House, Fox News tried to paint him with the terrorism brush. Rather than play games with the network, the Obama campaign simply blackballed Fox. Robert Greenwald’s “Fox Attacks” brings us up to date after Bill O’Reilly’s manhandling of an Obama staffer last weekend.

Congressman Defends War Profits

Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., objects to the notion that it is improper to pay a private contractor four times as much as a U.S. soldier doing the same job: “It’s actually somewhat of an insult, if I go down to Fort Stewart and tell ‘em they’re underpaid, because they’re really not motivated by pay as much as they are by patriotism.” If only Halliburton felt the same way.

Bush Is Flouting Court After Gitmo Ruling

Constitutional expert and best-selling author Glenn Greenwald reminds us that the Supreme Court’s Hamdan decision not only outlawed Bush’s military tribunals, but also removed any conceivable argument to support Bush’s illegal wiretapping programs.

  • Greenwald: “Journalists should begin asking the Justice Department every day what their legal justification for warrantless eavesdropping is now that Hamdan has rendered frivolous their prior legal arguments in defense of the President.”
