The Onion’s AV Club: Glenn Greenwald Loves Sony, Now That They’ve Bought the Rights to His Book
The Onion’s AV Club zeroes right in on the Mighty Greenwald: Glenn Greenwald Loves Sony, Now That They’ve Bought the Rights to His Edward Snowden Book.
This is how you do “scathing.”
“I’m very happy to be working with Amy Pascal, Doug Belgrad and the team at Sony Pictures Entertainment, who have a successful track record of making thoughtful and nuanced true-life stories that audiences want to see,” said Greenwald of the same executives he had previously accused of producing “the ultimate hagiography of the most secretive arm of America’s National Security State” when they made Zero Dark Thirty, but now heartily endorses, because they’re giving him lots of money.
“We are extremely proud that […] Glenn chose Sony to bring this riveting story to the big screen,” added Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, the Sony subsidiary Greenwald likened to the Nazi propaganda machine a year and a half ago, but which now owns the rights to Greenwald’s book.
