I notice some disinfo about the Snowden leaks

Some of this information was available since Russel Tice went through normal congressional whistleblower channels in 2009 as soon as Bush left office.

The thing is, there was a media blackout (aside from Keith Olbermann), and the hearings didn't do squat.

The difference with Snowden is that he is not only whisteblowing through the media rather than Congress, but he is also doing it partly through foreign media and out-of-country.

95% of the DP membership certainly have never heard about it, such was the strength of the Blackout. You can still find the interviews on youtube.
