Glenn Greenwald pops the bubble of Tim Russert-the-legend

April 5, 2009 | By | 1 Reply More

Glenn Greenwald tells it straight.  Tim Russert was an embarrassment to journalism, not a hero.

I previously discussed Russert’s version of “journalism” here.

I also agree with Amy Goodman’s comments about the corporate media still not doing its job regarding the scope and purpose of U.S. military operations.

  1. Erich Vieth says:

    Glenn Greenwald again discusses Tim Russert:

    “The heralded tough-guy journalist Tim Russert said that all of his conversations with government officials are presumptively off the record, and he feels free to report them only if they give him explicit permission (“when I talk to senior government officials on the phone, it’s my own policy our conversations are confidential. If I want to use anything from that conversation, then I will ask permission“).”
