Quote of the Day: Greenwald Coming Back to US

GlennGreenwaldIn an interview with Huff Post Live’s Alyona Minkovski today, Glenn Greenwald swore that he would come back to the United States, Polk Award in hand, whether or not he faced legal challenges over his role in the NSA leak stories:

“I’m going to force the issue just on principle, and I think coming back for a ceremony like the Polk Award or other forms of journalistic awards would be a really good symbolic test. We’re still figuring out exactly how we’re going to do it and when, but there’s no question we’re going to come back to the US and test the First Amendment.”

Glenn Greenwald Live on HuffPost at 1:00PM

Afternoon Reading List 10.21.13

The love/hate relationship between technology and news: NYT media writer David Carr had a piece Sunday about the budding bromance between technology and news, after the two have been at odds with each other for the better part of their relationship. But with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos buying WaPo and eBay founder Pierre M. Omidyar starting a newly conceived news site with Glenn Greenwaldit’s becoming apparent that there may be an actual future for journalism and technology.

Why you should read it: The news game is  changing. Don’t be stuck riding the bench when your team gets a new coach. Read more here.

Obama to give Rose Garden rally: According to Daily Caller’s Neil Munro, this morning, the President was scheduled to speak with consumers, small business owners, and pharmacists about the new healthcare law in the Rose Garden. Munro, who made himself famous in the Rose Garden, points out that since most early Obamacare success stories have either been outright lies or erroneous exaggerations, this is an attempt to save face and earn political points before the 2014 elections by pointing out Obamacare’s successes while claiming its failures unacceptable.

Why you should read it: The Rose Garden healthcare awareness rally will probably not answer why numerous companies have reduced employment and reduced workers’ hours to escape the high cost of the Obamacare regulations, but this story does. Read more here.

Afternoon Reading List 10.16.13

MSNBC makes it awkward: According to The Hill’s Jonathan Easley, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) got into a pretty charged-up conversation with MSNBC host Thomas Roberts on Tuesday. She repeatedly told him that his remarks were “inappropriate” and staunchly defended her stance regarding the current government stalemate. After the line of questioning reached its most heated moment, MSNBC cut to a press conference being given by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Why you should read it: Honestly, read it so that you don’t have to watch or hear the video clip. Around the 3:02 mark, Blackburn and Roberts decided to loudly make their points clear to each other — and at the exact same time. The writeup is way more comprehensible. Read more here.

Daily Caller is not amused by Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher: Jeff Poor, media reporter at the Daily Caller, just had the sweetest things to say about Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher in a story posted on Tuesday about Christopher asking a tongue-in-cheek question during a White House briefing. Poor’s piece mentioned that Christopher’s name isn’t actually “Tommy Christopher.”

Why you should read it: See the mildly humorous question Christopher asked White House press secretary Jay Carney that Poor declared as the “dumbest question in history of White House press briefings.” Read more here.

Afternoon Reading List 08.26.13.

Morning has spoken — MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and CBS’s Gayle King usually spend their mornings talking alongside Joe Scarborough and Charlie Rose to television viewers. But the two spent a late morning recently talking with NYT‘s Philip Galanes over an early lunch. As Galanes notes, lunch comes mid-morning when your day starts at 3:30 a.m. The trio discussed the differences in dynamics between themselves and the co-hosts of Brzezinski’s “Morning Joe” and King’s “CBS This Morning.” They also talked about their favorite interviews they’ve done and about parenting, with Galanes guiding the conversation. Overall, it reads like a few friends chatting about work and life over brunch.

Why you should read it: Galanes is as much a part of the piece as King and Brzezinski, which makes for an quirky, entertaining dynamic. When he suggests Mika is just a sidekick to Joe, Gayle jumps in and says Mika is no “mouseburger.” Galanes’ interview offers glimpse into their lives outside the studio. Plus, bonus points on the headline: “For two female news anchors, morning has spoken.” Read more

CNN’s Toobin: ‘Journalism is Not Magical Immunity Sauce’

Should David Miranda, the spouse of The Guardian‘s Glenn Greenwald, have been detained in London last week?

CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin adamantly says yes.

“I don’t want to be unkind, but he was a mule,” Toobin told Anderson Cooper on CNN’s “AC360″ last night. “He was given something he didn’t know what it was from one person to pass to someone at the other end of an airport. Our prisons are full of drug mules. Glenn’s view is as long as one of the two people on either end of that transaction was a journalist he can take anything he wants. …the nuclear launch codes, names of undercover agents.”

The money quote came at the end.

Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald Annoyed That TPM Reports He Was Annoyed

The story behind-the-story of the Snowden NSA leaks must still be interesting. And it’s all getting rather weirdly touchy.

Today, the New York Times ran a transcript of an “encrypted question-and-answer session” between journalist Peter Maass and Snowden, in which Snowden is asked about his initial contacts with Glenn Greenwald and filmmaker Laura Poitras. It’s a preview of a profile of Poitras called “Snowden’s People” that will run in the Sunday magazine.

The most interesting part of it all is when Snowden says he thought Poitras and Greenwald were annoyed he wasn’t older. He’s 30, though we’re not entirely sure why that would matter (Maass apparently didn’t seem to feel the need to follow-up, but it could have something to do with the belabored security-intensive interview method in which Poitras served as intermediary). This was also just Snowden’s impression upon their first meeting—he doesn’t give any real details on why he thought they were upset about his age—and it was an impression he gave while admitting he, too, was annoyed because Poitras and Greenwald had showed up for their meeting early.

All that was the point of a short transcript that Talking Points Memo highlighted in a post this morning under the headline, “Snowden: Greenwald Was ‘Annoyed That I was Younger’ Than He Expected.” Normally that would be that, but then Greenwald chimed in to help us understand why Snowden’s age was so off-putting.

You see, Greenwald is just easily annoyed.

Maybe You’re a Journalist, But Then Again, Maybe Not

McClatchy’s Kate Irby reports from the Senate Judiciary Committee that some senators are struggling over just who might be a journalist—and therefore worthy of protection from intrusive federal government subpoenas and court orders relating to their work—and who might not be.

The bill defines a journalist as a person who has a “primary intent to investigate events and procure material” in order to inform the public by regularly gathering information through interviews and observations. The person also must intend to report on the news at the start of obtaining any protected information and must plan to publish that news.

But senators disagreed on how to define journalists, since some thought the bill’s definition wasn’t specific enough.

“Specific enough” is code for “doesn’t include political enemies” since Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) was worried it might cover someone who worked at Wikileaks (or Glenn Greenwald, probably, though she doesn’t seem to have come out and said it directly).

Unfortunately, that was the least troublesome objection.
