Guardian “Readers’ Editor” Discovers Their NSA Reporting Has Been Flawless
The Guardian’s “readers’ editor” examines their NSA reporting, which has been replete with misleading headlines, exaggerations, and hyperbolic Greenwaldisms, and pronounces it flawless and wonderful.
The main criticism he comes up with: some commenters in their (heavily moderated) comments sections thought the Guardian should be releasing everything, all at once. But they courageously resisted.
Rarely have I read such an obsequious self-exoneration. Not a single one of the valid criticisms about the Guardian’s (and especially Glenn Greenwald’s) many factual misstatements and exaggerations is mentioned.
