    The one I referenced was good - very, very good.

      Even if in the history of the universe, Glenn "Beck" Greenwald may have once been correct, that doesn't matter in terms of his credibility because he pathologically lies so much that there is no conceivable way of determining whether anything he is writing at any particular time has any truth value whatsoever.

      Sure, habitual, pathological liars occasionally say true things.  That doesn't mean that you can trust that what they are saying at any given moment is true.

        I wasn't giving any ringing endorsement of Greenwald or anything remotely along those lines. I only linked one article which is good (I'm pretty sure you would agree, actually).

        Methinks you're extrapolating overmuch from what I did say, to what I didn't.

          I just think it's impossible to know whether any claim made by Greenwald is true, because his record for blatant, outright lying is so transparent.

          If there was ire in my comment, it was aimed solely at Glen Beckwald.
