  •  You need to research Greenwalds comments (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    against people that disagree with him or question his work or simply support Obama.  There is nothing baseless in my claim.  His twitter wars with critics and others are well documented.

    A good place to start would be right here on DKOS

    Remember this offensive tweet

    http://www.dailykos.com/...

    Or how about the Obama raping a nun tweet.

    http://thegrio.com/...

    or clashing with MSNBC hosts because they question his NSA reporting

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

    If you disagree about Grrenwalds take on Obama's drone policies you're a sociopath

    http://www.theguardian.com/...

    How about his twitter tussle with Joshua Faust and his reporting about the errors and misleading comments contained in Greenwalds NSA reporting.

    http://joshuafoust.com/...

    There are numerous articles by Greenwalds fellow journalists that describe him and his petty push back against anyone that questions him.

    There is a place to decide the constitutionality of what the NSA does.  It's the FISA court and then the supreme court.  Not Mr Greenwalds rants and articles that are riddled with holes and conveniently leave out information that goes against his assertions.

    •  So you regurgitate some contentious tweets (0+ / 0-)

      and his tussle with Foust, a known defense industry shill/NSA apologist, while failing to address this:

      Greenwald believes that he alone stands for the constitution and people that disagree with him are somehow unamerican. It's a load of BS.
      I asked you to support that claim, and you tell me to go research a bunch of shit that proves nothing other than Greenwald is a meanie.

      Sorry, not impressed.

      •  How convenient of you to ignore (0+ / 0-)
        and people that disagree with him are somehow unamerican
         Something which I addressed.

        The point I am making is that he condescends and insults people that challenge him and disagree with him by comparing them to NAZIs and accusing them of being shills.etc.  Something that you just did so I guess you are down with that type of tactics.

        The problem with Greenwald was he accused Faust of not revealing the fact that he has worked as a contractor for defense industry when Faust has that prominently displayed on his site.

        Makes no difference to me weather you're impressed or not.

        •  But you failed to address the bolded text (0+ / 0-)

          I don't care whether he's a meanie to people who disagree with him. He's not the first, and won't be the last, to do so.

          But using that as a reason to discredit his reporting, and mischaracterizing his positions, however, is another matter.

          I'm sorry he's hurt President Obama's and your feelings, though.

          Time heals.

          •  The bolded text is part of a complete sentence (0+ / 0-)

            Which I addressed.

            I never used it as a reason to discredit his reporting.  His sloppiness, lying, hyperbole, flawed logic and omission of details is the reason I don't take him seriously as a reporter.

            Like Greenwald your petty condescension is a transparent silly tactic.  Yes I'm sure Obama's feelings are hurt.  I take it you have nothing constructive to add.
