Chris Hayes is a conspiracy theorist.

No doubt the last 30 seconds says it all. Maybe he should punch Rachel Maddow in the eye and go work for Alex Jones.

Not that I disagree with what Hayes said. I just think its funny when someone in the Corporatist Media says something truthful, that many of us have pointed out for decades, only to be told "Don't forget your Tin Foil hat on the way to meet Bigfoot for bananas", when we were only pointing out the obvious.

Hayes if you're trolling... Read the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and look up Democide. Wake up buddy, the answer to 1984 is 1776.

There is no Left vs. Right, only Tyranny vs. Freedom!

Greenwald Just Made This Very Point In His Speech

And also pointed out that during their interview David Gregory, just ninety seconds before calling for Greenwald's prosecution, himself leaked top-secret information a government official had told him about a FISA court ruling (information that Greenwald went on to explain is false, as he has seen the ruling and Gregory has not).

So the only news story that David Gregory has ever broken was done so inadvertently and was incorrect.

"information that Greenwald went on to explain is false, as he has seen the ruling and Gregory has not"

Whisperings in ones ear by government is enough, apparently :)

That made me laugh what glenn said, because its true.......and somberly funny

I Watched The Speech Again And Realize I Mispoke Above

Greenwald has not seen the ruling itself, just documents describing it (still much more than Gregory has seen).

technically, he has seen the ruling, in document form, which is as you say "still much more than Gregory has seen", just a whispering in ones ear by government, seems fitting

Excellent piece.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Wonderful piece by Hayes

After the MSM turned the spotlight from the NSA/spying issue to Snowden/Greenwald, Hayes turns the spotlight on the MSM.

He looks to be the next Keith Olbermann, pissing off the corporate masters.

EDIT: Links to the 'other NSA leaker' Russ Tice on Keith Olbermann in 2009 and a synopsis on a daily KOS blog asking why no other media will carry it: SHARE, SHARE, SHARE (I wonder if this could be the REAL reason Olbermann was jettisoned?)

I don't watch MSNBC anymore,

I don't watch MSNBC anymore, but I have to give it up to Chris Hayes for this report. Bravo!

If you're a rag tag team of

If you're a rag tag team of moron CIA Al Qaeda(The Base) terrorists, you would at least know the NSA can monitor your every digital communication over every platform already for the past ten years. Unless you're a bunch of CIA/NSA fluoridated stupid Americans.

I don't drink fluoride, so I already knew this.

Why isn't Vice President Joe Biden a 'Traitor' for telling the world that Seal Team Six killed OBL!?! They were targeted after he outted them, and 22 of them were killed when their helicopter crashed in Afghanistan. The hypocrisy is staggering.

well besides the obvious

Or obvious it feels like to me, that it was an intentional leak to gauge the reaction of people and see if it will get out to potential terrorists and terrorists overseas. To try and convince them either that they have nowhere else to go and to keep communicating as they had been.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

I think it's just a matter of time.

I think it's just a matter of time before Todo sinks his teeth into the curtain and whips it open, revealing the pot bellied old man running the show.

Agree With Everything But The Last Point

The people are not responsible for what the government does. The government is not acting "in my name."
