and his point is well taken, that Snowden was able to trigger a sea change in our understanding and our debate about internet privacy, etc.
But I didn't see anyone from the the Washington Post showing up on every news show and making the point that these revelations are very important. Even though they also were recipients of the leaked material.
Glenn has been the face of this discussion from almost the very beginning. He has tirelessly, articulately, steadfastly, resolutely thoroughly turned Snowden's material into rock-solid arguments against the state spying apparatus, more than any other 10 people we could name put together.
Without Greenwald's herculean efforts, this whole thing would have gone down the memory hole very quickly. Bravo to both of them.
I'm voting for Peace.
