  1. This so called “interviewer” Ms Carrera @ BBC’s Newsnight, seems so uninformed about basic journalistic credo, that one cannot help but wonder if her actual employer is GCHQ.
    Her “interrogation” is clearly aimed at ‘catching ‘ real journalist Greenwald at something nefarious that exists in her imagination.
    Thank goodness for those with the courage of Greenwald, Snowden, Manning and many unnamed others, who do not subscribe or cave to current “ministry of Truth (propaganda)” that Orwell warned about. Send Carrera off to Daily Mail /Fox where she can fantasize to her heart’s content. bullocks!!
