Greenwald speaks to GQ
about an upcoming Snowdenganza:
We published the first article [about the NSA collecting Verizon phone records] while I was in Hong Kong last June and won't stop until we're done. I think we will end the big stories in about three months or so [June or July 2014]. I like to think of it as a fireworks show: You want to save your best for last. There's a story that from the beginning I thought would be our biggest, and I'm saving that. The last one is the one where the sky is all covered in spectacular multicolored hues. This will be the finale, a big missing piece. Snowden knows about it and is excited about it.
And for the Pando pricks, this:
Sometimes people think that, like, we have the entire NSA archive and that we can just go in and pick whatever we want at any moment and just report it. We don't have the entire NSA archive. We have snippets of the NSA archive.
I'm sure that this won't be enough to please some of you. Gift horse, meet the tooth inspector. Ratfuckers and trolls who are paid to dis Greenwald may want to ply their trade on some other blog.
Speaking of trolls:
Eddie Snowden has attracted the attention of Eddie Snowjob. That's right: None other than Edward Jay Epstein
-- a.k.a. Old Spookface -- has attacked Snowden as a probable agent of those filthy, filthy Russkies.
Spookface has been haunting journalism since before Snowden was born. As some of you know, Epstein was made "a little bit pregnant" (as spies like to say) by none other than James J. Angleton, the CIA's head of counterintelligence. Angleton was also an ultra-paranoid drunk, a manipulative ultra-right-wing schemer and a certifiable crazy person.
I'm surprised the EJE is still up to these tricks. He's not young anymore. For some backstory on the guy, go here

On a different topic:
Did you catch the last Real Time
? When Bill Maher announced the guests, the name "Arianna Huffington" evinced no applause whatsoever. Considering the kind of crowd Maher attracts, that reaction is telling. I think most liberals agree with my assessment: She's a phoney.
