Greenwald’s New Venture: Same Crap, Different Site

If the first article on Glenn Greenwald’s “The Intercept” page at the “First Look” website is any indication, very little actual journalism is actually planned for the enterprise. The article contains a lot of speculation, a couple of anonymous sources, and a whole lot of information we already know. The

Latest Snowden Document Shows Journalists as Absurd, Snowden as Irresponsible

Here is the latest document offered up by Edward Snowden. This document has been all over the news media; in fact, the New York Times did a breathless “analysis” of the document yesterday.
