    What more evidence do you need that NBC is simply an arm of the obama administration than this, David Gregory thinks journalist Glenn Greenwald should be thrown in jail for aiding and abetting Snowden in his leaks on the NSA. The whole segment was sickening watching that hypocrite who went after Bush trying to justify the obama admins actions, but this is a video of the worst part. Even the huffington post is shitting all over David Gregory for this interview.

    Greenwald: 'Who Needs Government to Try to Criminalize Journalism When You Have David Gregory to Do It?'

    DAVID GREGORY, HOST: To the extent that you have aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements, why shouldn’t you, Mr. Greenwald, be charged with a crime?

    GLENN GREENWALD: I think it’s pretty extraordinary that anybody who would call themself a journalist would publicly muse about whether or not other journalists should be charged with felonies. The assumption in your question, David, is completely without evidence, the idea that I’ve aided and abetted him in any way.

    The scandal that arose in Washington before our stories began was about the fact that the Obama administration is trying to criminalize investigative journalism by going through the emails and records of AP reporters, accusing a Fox News journalist of the theory that you just embraced, being co-conspirator in felonies for working with sources.

    If you want to embrace that theory, it means that every investigative journalist in the United States who works with their sources, who receives classified information, is a criminal. And it’s precisely those theories and precisely that climate that has become so menacing in the United States. It’s why the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer said investigative reporting has come to a standstill, her word, as a result of the theories that you just referenced.

    GREGORY: Well, the question of who’s a journalist may be up to a debate with regard to what you are doing. And of course anybody who’s watching this understands I was asking a question. That question has been raised by lawmakers as well. I’m not embracing anything, but, obviously, I take your point.

    Perhaps he thinks he is immune to the tactics used against the AP.

    And the AP says their sources have dried up since word of the DOJ investigation into their communications. I guess the DOJ plan worked to stifle the press.

    proof you can never trust a leftist.
    that are no bound by decency, intelligence, ethics, the constitution.

    But Obama will turn around and assure the world what a "free" country we live in because we have freedom of the press looking out for us.

    That will be the evidence we need to know that the opposite is true.
