Glenn Greenwald Trolls MSNBC While On MSNBC

I think we can all agree that Greenwald is a confirmed Liberal, but this is some funny stuff

(Daily Caller) MSNBC anchor Kristen Welker spoke with Greenwald Thursday about the NSA leaks, asking him to respond to critics who claim he’s become “more of a spokesman for Edward Snowden.” Greenwald’s response? Pot, meet kettle:

GREENWALD: I think that’s ludicrous, is what I say to that. Every journalist has an agenda. We’re on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified. The agenda of the Republican Party is undermined. That doesn’t mean the people on MSNBC aren’t journalists, they are. I think every journalist has a viewpoint. (snip)

A clearly flustered Welker tried to backtrack, declaring “”the point is not so much about MSNBC,” but that Greenwald’s defense of Snowden’s actions may “cross a line.”

“Sure, I do defend him,” Greenwald snarked back, “just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.”

The only time one sees criticism of Obama and Democrats on MSNBC is when we’re told that they haven’t moved far enough to the hyper-left.

    He may be liberal, but he is certainly an honest and thorough reporter, who has brought light to government misdeeds including our assassination of US citizens overseas. He has been a consistent critic of the NSA spying programs. Rather than subscribing to the partisan tribalism that has infected our punditry, he’s a liberal who harshly criticizes some of the policies of a President he generally supports. Most hacks see their “side” as always right – the other “side” as always wrong.

    If you obtain much of your information from MSNBC or FOX “News”, you’re part of the problem.

    So thanks for admitting you’re a large part of the problem.
