May 15, 2014
Pulitzer prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, famed for his association with Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks, has verbally attacked the mainstream media as “old style pro-government” lapdogs.
Appearing on the left-leaning radio and TV program “Democracy Now”, Greenwald took aim in particular at The Washington Post, with whom he has struggled to work on the NSA revelations for some time.
“The editors at The Washington Post are very much old-style, old-media, pro-government journalists,” Greenwald said, bashing the establishment media, adding that it’s reporters are “the kind who have essentially made journalism in the U.S. neutered and impotent and obsolete.”
