Glenn Greenwald Decries The Spying He Helped Enable When He Supported Bush!
I have this fantasy that there are real journalists left in the world of cable news. But just like my other fantasies, they never seem to come true. (Insert Rimshot here) Glenn Greenwald’s latest piece of “advocacy” journalism deals with events that started in 2002 and ended in 2008. It involves the NSA under President […]
Glenn Greenwald, Perpetually Wrong, But Allowed To Be So!
I frequently get asked why I write so much about Glenn Greenwald. I’ve looked at myself in the mirror many times and asked the same question. I think back to when I first read one of his posts at Salon during the end of the Bush administration. He was railing against Bush at that time […]
Glenn Greenwald Is Either Really Dumb Or A Blatant Liar – Pick One Or Both! (Update)
Updated below! I’m thankful that I don’t fall for Glenn Greenwald’s anti-American propaganda and have the patience to wait for the truth to come out. His latest bout of jumping up and down and screaming “look at me, look at me” as he spews his anti-American lies is one of his most egregious yet. It […]
Glenn Greenwald’s “Little Brain” Made Me Think of This! UPDATE!
The following is a clip from one of my all time favorite movies, “Defending Your Life”. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Besides Albert Brooks, who also wrote and directed it, it stars Meryl Streep and Rip Torn. Take a few minutes and watch this clip. I frequently think about this scene […]
Glenn Greenwald, The Polemicist
Jonathan Chait has penned a must read of a column on Glenn Greenwald. Go read the whole thing. Here are a few passages that stuck out to me. (emphasis mine) The debate over domestic surveillance is not a debate about what we think about Glenn Greenwald. But Greenwald is a fascinating character. His resemblance to […]

Glenn Greenwald Supported President Bush As He Signed The Patriot Act!
The Patriot Act was signed on October 26, 2001 and this is what Glenn Greenwald wrote in the preface to his own book – his words, not mine…(emphasis IS mine) This is not to say that I was not angry about the attacks. I believed that Islamic extremism posed a serious threat to the country, […]
Glenn Greenwald’s Justification for the Boston Bombings
Updated for clarity Guest Post By Marcus Brutus Extremist responses to anti-US atrocities fall into two categories: denial which spawns troofer movements or justification with dismissal. Glenn Greenwald’s latest article is an example of the second category, it’s his automatic response to Islamist terrorism. When the Oslo slaughter was believed to have been caused by […]
Salon.com Parts Ways With Glenn Greenwald – But Will Salon Continue To Smear Good People?
You may have heard that Glenn Greenwald, the Rio Pundit, is leaving Salon.com and bringing his brand of hyperbole to The Guardian. As someone who used to be a loyal reader of Salon, I hope that it signals a turn back to the days of old. I’m not exactly confident that it will, they did […]
Anatomy of a Glenn Greenwald Smear Job (updated)
(This is a repost of an article I published on September 15, 2011, with a shocking update! I’m reposting it because he is currently attacking other bloggers — including me — in the same style.) I’m not a huge fan of Glenn Greenwald. There are many reasons why I dislike the man and his writings, […]
Morning Music – Dedicated to Glenn Greenwald
She is one of my favorite artists, Rickie Lee Jones. This song – “Ugly Man” – was written about President George W. Bush, but I’m dedicating it to my new friend Glenn Greenwald, who has inspired me to write a lot more about him. Thanks Glenn… Considering the fact that Glenn Greenwald trusted Bush going […]
Anatomy Of A Glenn Greenwald Smear Job!
I’m not a huge fan of Glenn Greenwald. There are many reasons why I dislike the man and his writings, but the main ones are his dishonesty and hyperbolic rhetoric. I only read him when I’m tipped off to something particularly crazy. I’ll be honest and say that when he was assaulting the Bush administration, […]
Glenn Greenwald, Failed Lawyer, Knows Best!
Glenn Greenwald has been pushing the idea that President Obama has been waging an “unprecedented war on whistleblowers.” Yesterday on Twitter, he was fawning over a Jane Mayer magazine article on the subject. I see this as a perfect example of the rabidness of Greenwald and how simple his mind is. To start with, the […]
