You won’t see Edward Snowden being interviewed on American TV. But you will see the nation’s top intelligence official James R. Clapper Jr., who previously lied to Congress under oath about the existence of bulk data collection programs, all over the news accusing Snowden and unidentified “accomplices” of causing “grave damage to the country’s security.”
Postscript: Well, excuse me. Here are several seconds on ABC News the other night from the German TV interview of Snowden. The entire ABC clip comes to about two minutes. It’s pathetic. The 30-second commercial preceding the video gets more time than he does. And the official U.S. take on Snowden gets most of the coverage, of course, especially complaints by American corporations that his leaks have damaged their business prospects overseas. Which is bad for the economy. Snowden is a bery bery bad man. Oh yeah.
