Media Finds Edward Snowden’s Alleged Girlfriend, Please Brace Yourself

Well, here we go. The media has located Edward Snowden’s (the NSA whistleblower) alleged girlfriend. What does she have to do with any of this? Nothing! But this is America, and we love making something out of nothing and somebodies out of nobodies.

Here are just a few of the places already talking about someone that doesn’t matter at all:

  • Inside Edition (credit them with breaking this amazing, must-read story)
  • Gawker
  • BuzzFeed
  • Cosmo ( ! )
  • The Huffington Post
  • Business Insider
  • ABC News
  • New York Daily News

Much to the media’s delight, the woman is a dancer and writes a blog. Those items alone will give them fodder for months.

Will all of this unnecessary attention ruin this woman’s life? Yes! But please, don’t bother the media with ethics when it’s busy creating a celebrity.
