Much as I dislike both of these people, Amy Goodman and David Johnston, they both must be watched to have the contrast between Johnston and Greenwald. Goodman is just a little bit too impressed with the liberal award Pulitzer Prize and just a little to well chuffed with the intellectual dispute she created by bringing the two men together. Her smile is a thing of real horror.
Watch Johnston spew all that he knows about Trump. Then watch Greenwald make Johnston look small.
Johnston is distracted, Greenwald is on point.
The thing is, though, Greenwald's concern is about journalism's reputation, not about the success of the United States. He doesn't seem to care about the corruption of the Democrat party, nor their corrupting American government, just the corruption of media.
OMG, Amy Goodman's voice alone is enough to drive you right up the wall.
Here's another video on Greenwald's Twitter feed. Here again, to appreciate it you must actually bear with all the people you actively avoid for all the reasons they show now compressed into just a few minutes. It's not enjoyable.
A short two-minute video for those of you in the media pitifully insisting that no media reckoning is needed and journalists performed beautifully, soberly and responsibly throughout this whole saga: pic.twitter.com/PF5s2kTcYA— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) March 25, 2019
I've heard Greenwald mention a few times that Rachel Maddow makes $10M a year for crap reporting. She's providing what her audience wants. That makes me think Greenwald resents Maddow's success with craptastic reporting while Greenwald makes much less providing good journalism. In this world at present good journalism just doesn't pay. Maddow is glaringly absent from the above video. She has her own separate videos that satire her bizarre form of madness and by extension the viewers who consume it and make her wealthy for providing for their disjointed need.
