Media Blacked Out Snowden Interview
Although someone just sent this link to me, one blog reader pointed out the date on the story is actually from last year and I initially thought it was recent. Nevertheless, as we reflect upon the events of 2014 I think it is important to remember the Edward Snowden story as well as Operation Fast and Furious. Those two extremes define the year.
B Swann reported that "This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube."
"In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom."
This is rather astounding. It exemplifies the removal of the freedom of the press. Just who is controlling what the media runs? Let's ask Gary Webb shall we? Banned from youtube? Is nothing sacred? Oath Keepers rightfully recognize Edward Snowden as a Patriot. Snowden is no Wikileaks. He never reported military secrets. He reported illegal activity. The fact that they want to throw him in jail and censor his world wide warning is astounding.
God bless Edward Snowden.
