The “journalist” in the last panel is David Gregory from “Meet the Press”. Who during a heated exchange did indeed ask Greenwald why he shouldn’t be charged with a felony. Gregory claimed that Greenwald “aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements”. Gregory seems to think it is the job of journalists to make accusations, even without any supporting evidence.
What’s really ironic about this is that in January, during an interview with NRA head Wayne LaPierre in Washington DC, Gregory displayed a large-capacity rifle magazine. Which is illegal in DC.
That’s because Gregory isn’t a journalist, he’s a paid political assassin and works for the current administration. When he’s told to attack that’s what he does. When he’s told this will be a PR piece then that is his angle.
Not much different then the conservative assassin’s, I mean journalists, out there.
Party workers they are all. Sounds like something out of a Cold War or Reich movie doesn’t it.
Sgt, when Bush & Cheney were President, Gregory sounded like he worked for them. I’ve always thought he was a teabagger with a thin veneer of civilization, but perhaps he’s just a world-class suckup.
Westomoon – I’d put my money on the latter. 🙂
