GreenwaldSubmitted by kevink on Tue, 08/05/2014 - 11:49
I just want to point out that Greenwald's "bombshell" revelations have resulted in barely a blip on the American psyche. And once again he has fallen silent in reporting new revelations. I know some are going to say "it's because he's doing real journalism". It just doesn't add up to me though. He's had the Snowden docs for over a year. Supposedly they were extremely well organized. Yet Greenwald hasn't released any major revelations in quite a while now (the names of a few Arabs notwithstanding).
Edit: I just wanted to add that the "names of a few Arabs" comment is not to downplay the rights of Arabs. They absolutely should have their privacy protected just like everyone else. My point (which I've stated in previous posts) is that the average American probably saw those names and felt like "those sound like the kind of names that the NSA should be spying on" (again this is not my own view but my impression of what I think the average asleep American will think) As a result, it didn't have a big impact
