â€œInstead of being adversaries to government power â€¦ [the media of Washington, D.C., are] â€¦ servants to it and mouthpieces for it.â€ So said the Guardianâ€™s Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of Edward Snowdenâ€™s disclosure of NSA spying on the American people, after Greenwaldâ€™s confrontation with Meet the Pressâ€™s David Gregory. Greenwald neednâ€™t have limited his observation to the D.C. media. Plenty of reporters and cable-news talking heads are playing the same role in the NSA drama. If the press spent half the time investigating Obamaâ€™s Big Brother operations that they spend sneering at Snowden and Greenwald, writes Sheldon Richman, Americans might demand that the government stop spying on them.
