Glenn Greenwald: Defending Snowden Same As MSNBC’s Defense of Pres. Obama

GreenwaldAppearing on MSNBC, former Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald compared his defense of NSA leaker Edward Snowden to MSNBC “promoting” President Obama’s agenda “24 hours a day.”

“That’s ludicrous,” Greenwald said. “Where on MSNBC now were close to 24 hours a day, the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified…the agenda of the Republican Party is undermined.”

“The point is not so much about MSNBC and what happens here,” host Kristen Welker responded, asking Greenwald if he crosses the line by defending Snowden.

“Sure I do defend him, just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day,” Greenwald shot back.
