Wow, where to begin...
I love the subject line above, which I used from this 'The Nation' article:
I was unsurprisingly stunned tonight that CBS had sunk even lower than
Fox News in their reporting on the NSA tonight -- nothing less than
Here are a few initial thoughts that came out tonight -- and they will
assuredly continue to roll in:
'How we know the 60 Minutes NSA interview was crap'
'60 Minutes': NSA Good, Snowden Bad
'Shame On Feinstein' Coalition Warns Of Silicon Valley Economic Impact
From NSA Spying
One can only scratch their heads & wonder what CBS is doing here. Are
they really this incompetent, or are they maneuvering somehow to support
the Obama administration's attempt to only make 'cosmetic changes' to
the NSA and FISA Court operations, and whitewash the NSA overreach?
I've already seen several main stream U.S. news organizations
'interpret' the leaked recommendations from the 'oversight board' as
'sweeping' when they are nothing more than cosmetic & business as usual.
No pun intended, but the NSA and the Obama Administration are pulling a
"Snow Job" on the American People.
