As a young reporter, the @washingtonpost was my "dream paper." My naïveté slowly died. This snuffs the last ember.
+@the_intercept I bet the turd who wrote that editorial has a piece of black tape over their laptop camera
It's like an onion article.
Great article. Looks like the first Wapo-link leads to the wrong article.
RT'D > @ggreenwald WaPo Makes History: Paper To Call For Prosecution Of Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer) theintercept.com/2016/09/18/was…
+@AnonymTipster +@the_intercept Glory days at #WaPo are long gone as it slides even deeper into the abyss of corporate expediency.
...Taking the rest of the mainstream media with it, into that abyss of uselessness to the world.
+@washingtonpost breaks @Snowden story @JeffBezos buys WaPo WaPo sez "HANG SNOWDEN" I think I've got this figured out.
Same paper quoting @JeffBezos as saying putting nuclear reactors on things that explode is A GREAT IDEA wapo.st/2cXXBG7
you think editorial boards should choose who they think should be prosecuted based on which paper the source decided to leak to?
Hey, @washingtonpost you just lost a subscriber, and @JeffBezos, @amazon loses the tens of thousands a year I spend #FreeSnowden
so you think papers should refuse to publish leaks from sources who they believe should be prosecuted?
well, they'd have a civil duty to protect secrecy at that point, wouldn't they?
yes if their reason for wanting them prosecuted was that the info was "not in the public interest". y'd they publish it?
They published a tiny portion of leak. Even Glenn agrees that most of what Snowden leaked shouldn’t be published.
and it hasn't been. Where's the disclosure?
+@the_intercept looks like bezos is trying to out Murdock murdock

+@the_intercept so @realDonaldTrump has to pass his bigot of the month award to the @washingtonpost
+@the_intercept and I thought the Huffington Post was bad.
+@the_intercept Journalism is dead in America.
Worry not! It's about to be dead everywhere else! 😞
Journalism is dead everywhere else as well.
Will they give the Pulitzer up?
Will Obama give his Nobel "peace" prize back? Nope. #HillaryForPrison #Trump2016
I'm not particularly fond of Hillary. But you won't convince me Trump is beautiful just because she's damn ugly
Niether are beautiful, Hillary is dangerous. Trump has the balls to try and fix this mess we call a country.
I think both are a poor choice after such an expensive campaign. Not worth it.
+@2sense2 I beg to differ wrt making history: Rank hypocrisy has been for longer than paper, let alone this newspaper.
Such is the bourgeois press. Disgusting but not surprising to a revolutionary Trotskyist. #DumpCapitalism #DefendSnowden
+@the_intercept great piece Mr. Greenwald, thank you.
+@LeftistRebel Carl Bernstein & Bob Woodward of the Pentagon Papers are extremely busy. Don't disturb them.
+@the_intercept +@CandaceDBuckner your new paper dropped the ball
So @washingtonpost profits from sources and then throws them under a bus. Okay? Good luck getting new ones.
wasn't it specifically The Post's version of the PRISM story - rushed to beat The Guardian - that had issues and errors?
+@the_intercept how not shocking at all!
+@the_intercept WaPo is a sorry excuse for journalism
+@the_intercept This's what you can expect from @washingtonpost when you give them info, no one to blame but yourself here on out
Post has always been this crappy. Perennial defender of Beltway elites. But in the Internet age, they are rightly being mocked.
After watergate Katharine Graham scolded her reporters not to be too nosy about Government. last 3 parag fair.org/extra/snow-job/
+@Glinner +@the_intercept When did those who defrauded public expenditure and hacked outside their jurisdiction face trial again?
+@Snowden would stand little chance of fairness from a rigged Justice Dept. & a corrupt FBI,who refused to indict Hillary Clinton
where is Ben Bradlee when we need him?
+@the_intercept hahaha in the tank for @HillaryClinton journalism is dead!
+@theintercept fixed the Snowden article (and Pulitzer Prize references) on Wikipedia, thank you.
+@the_intercept A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. ~ J. Pulitzer in 1904
+@the_intercept What does Gellman think of all this?
Yeah, that went through my head too the minute I read that headline.
going over to the dark side..
+@the_intercept This is crazy and a major blow to the integrity of the @washingtonpost.
It's a company town and they are the company paper, what did you expect? youtu.be/HMIyDf3gBoY
+@the_intercept the editorial page, not the author of the original story. Correct?
The state of journalism in America.
+@zackwhittaker +@the_intercept Good. @Snowden should stand trial. If the people find him guilty/not guilty so be it.
When I hear this type bullshit spouted I always wonder whether you actually have no brain, or were paid enough to shut it off...? @Netsecrex
great idea, let the ppl judge him not the gov
Not until the torturers and liars he exposed stand trial, you fucking moron.
but @Snowden would have no way to launch defense under charges brought by Espionage Act. It wouldn't be a fair trial
That is the risk he took when he chose his path
and wapo too, they can stand trial too.
respectfully, I disagree.
That is your right. As I feel what he did is/was wrong.
everything "the state" does is beyond correction eh?
the people won't judge him though, the government will
how does it feel want your government to lie to you? what is that like in your head?
I disrespectfully disagree.Prosecution of govt whistleblowers in a secret court is un American and a crock of shit
this is cold war Russia style governance, and both Bush 43, and Obama should be ashamed of themselves
Saw Snowden last night, you all are true American heroes who believe in our Constitution and freedom. Thank you!
Good article Glenn.
+@tmorello +@the_intercept All I know is the truly brave stand trail & place trust in Justice even if they face losing. WashPost💩!

The Washington Post stopped being a newspaper after Jeff bought it. It is no longer in the same class as the other three.
+@lfrayer +@the_intercept papers don't / cant give immunity. They didn't out him.
+@the_intercept I thought of a word for this: grief
+@the_intercept Just say next admin wil probably have better relations with putin will snowden be the price?
+@the_intercept they need to face the music just like everyone else
+@the_intercept people knew the chances they were taking publishing it. Now they want to back track to save their behinds.
........works for me......
This is the article that deserves recognition
What else were you all expecting from a wimp like Jeff Bezos who bought the Washington Post?
+@punchcardsorter +@the_intercept this sort of crap (and the ridiculous pricing) is why I'm subscribed to the @nytimes instead 😝
+@HamlinDebbi +@the_intercept Washington Post published Snowdon's information so are they not equally culpable&liable4prosecution?
+@maira America would be a better place if WaPo had closed rather than become a corporatocrat PR mill under Amazon's owner.
The REAL REASON: WaPo fell into many CIA traps, from which another "Jason" suffered from protecting WaPo; now WaPo is afraid -
Take your time and explain exactly how the Washington Post got information directly from @Snowden.
Loved the movie, Snowden! Just saw it yesterday. Keep it up!
😂😂😂Oooops... Maybe they understood that they've trusted the wrong one & hey,to say publicly you made a mistake is nothing wrong!

The @WashPostDC will next demand the prosecution of Deep Throat and Daniel Ellsberg. Mark Felt must be sent to prison first.
+@the_intercept it appears the WP is complacent with illegal government spying.
+@LeeCamp +@the_intercept +@washingtonpost vile panderers, nothing to be proud of.
+@the_intercept wow what a douche bag thing too dp
#RagPo thats pretty much what it's become, a fucking rag that i wouldn't even line a rats cage with.
+@the_intercept Perhaps Snowden is better off. Our democracy is a ghost. Privacy? There is no privacy. Never happen to u? Huh?
