How can anyone read Glenn Greenwald prattling on about how picked on he feels by the VRWC?? And remain so slavishly loyal to him as to defend his own behavior.
If his point is the supposed politicization of the military, then he’s certainly getting off the track by making the issue about Boylan and his snotty attitude towards himself.
I mean, how dare he be snotty to such a vaunted member of the press. Look at all his (GG) apologists and how they fawn over him, and his extensive bio. GG has an opinion and is paid to publish it. And how dare anyone take him to task for maybe not following the facts of a story or being loose with the context of quoted material. Yeah, maybe not in this case, but in previous cases?? Two points on a graph don’t make much of a trend, but a whole bunch of points do. And maybe the VRWC is piling on GG because well, it’s GG after all, and it gets more traffic then posting about more mundane topics like ethnic cleansing in LA.
I guess the only way to discuss the politicization of the media, er I mean, military is to throw around invective and make it an issue of a member of the armed forces being ’snide, hostile and nonresponsive’ to a member of the press. Even while such snideness, hostility, and non responsiveness, were in private emails.
Well, I guess, unless you just actually talk about the relationship between the media and the military.
