Yep.
And to forestall objections, Harris is a scumbag, but it doesn’t mean he’s not right about Greenwald.
And if only Greenwald were alone. Certain progressive shitheads hurried to spit on the dead:

re: #1 Nyet

When black French people patiently explained to them why Hebdo cartoons were not racist they got blown off. My mouth kept falling open at the time witnessing the display of arrogance on show.

re: #1 Nyet

Do read the whole of Jamie’s lengthy piece. He mentions Greenwald’s knee-jerk help for Mali when they were invaded by Islamists. As I wrote after the peace deal was signed, at the time Greenwald made plain he didn’t care what black African opinion was - they clamored for intervention - he opposed it. > paulocanning.blogspot.co.uk

I can’t stand Greenwald. However, a part of this argument is ridiculous: it’s the same bullshit that extreme pro Greater-Israel people(like Harris) declare anyone antisemitic(I know he’s all over the map on this subject) if they don’t admonish Arab extremists - and lump all Palestinians in with them - when objecting to the fascist, murderous behavior of the IDF and their political leaders.
As if there’s supposed to be some kind of unspoken equivalence. Same goes for criticizing Hebdo(which I don’t) - one doesn’t need to prove ones dislikes murderers and terrorists every time one criticizes them for goodness sake.

Yes, in a better world that would be true…

What I can’t stand is that his narrative drives his reporting and that he brags about it.

He has supported Putin and Russia while they have turned it into a Prison Camp, like turning on “Pussy Riot” and accusing them of having an Orgy. Putin has cut off his country from HIV medicines that has resulted in 180,000 deaths and yet Greenwald keeps asking why his Critics call him a Putin Puppet.

I went from being a Glennbot to hating the guy in about a year. His framing of Asperger’s, while destroying the credibility of a critic, was “It’s a fashionable disease…” That was the moment I realized his fact checking and reporting were so full of half truths that the Minbari would have hated the guy.

You don’t think they’d’ve appreciated a fellow bonehead?

…I’ll see myself out.

Seriously: Greenwald claims to be a journalist but argues like a lawyer, and that’s why his writing can’t be trusted. That said, anyone who leads with a Sam Harris quote has just given themself a very long hill to climb before I’ll take them seriously, either.
