by John Nolte, Breitbart:
Whatever you might think of Glenn Greenwald’s politics (I am not a fan) and his decision to break a number of stories surrounding Obama’s historic surveillance state (I am a fan), give the man points for consistency. This stuff infuriated Greenwald when Bush did it and he is just as infuriated today.
You can’t say the same about for the rest of the media, though, which is something Greenwald is recognizing among his left-wing media comrades. When it comes to a choice between principled consistency and circling the wagons to protect Obama, we all know which way most of the media is going to swing:
Greenwald told Business Insider late Tuesday night that he thinks some left-leaning members of the media — such as Time magazine’s Joe Klein and The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin — have shifted stances on surveillance and civil liberties for “principle-free, hackish, and opportunistic” reasons.
