The media’s big Benghazi test: Will they get snookered (again) by the discredited outfit’s leaks?


My bet is yes. Within 24 hours of Abedin's meeting with committee staffers, the leaks will appear in the media.

of all the points to be made, the point of no return is at least important, and at most less than desirable.
So, to make of nonsense more than pointed reflection is a gaudy opportunity for clarity...

Greenwald deserts Guardian for media co-op | Jonathan Cook's Blog
In the video (above), Jeremy Scahill fills out a little more detail on the new media venture he, Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras are working on. Good to hear that they don’t intend to have a boss or be subject to the interference of editors.

They are obviously hoping to create some sort of journalist cooperative. That’s a model I’m all in favour of, though one wonders what kind of agreement they will need in place to ensure their financial backer, eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, does not have editorial influence.

I find it revealing that Scahill says the three of them have been talking about this for a while, and well before Omidyar approached them. He mentions that the new venture will be “journalist-driven” and not “hindered by bureaucratic institutions or processes”.

The fact that these three senior journalists feel the need to liberate themselves and their work from traditional media organisations more than hints at the restrictions that operate within the mainstream media, even for the most established and influential journalists.

Greenwald, for example, wouldn’t be breaking away from the Guardian if that paper was already offering him real independence.

Glenn Greenwald Will Leave Guardian To Create New News Organization

Glenn Greenwald, the lawyer and blogger who brought The Guardian the biggest scoop of the decade, is departing the London-based news organization, for a brand-new, large-scale, broadly focused media outlet, he told BuzzFeed Tuesday.

Greenwald, 46, published revelations from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden about the extent of American and British domestic spying and about officials’ deception about its scope. He said he is departing for a new, “once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity” with major financial backing, the details of which will be public soon.“My partnership with The Guardian has been extremely fruitful and fulfilling: I have high regard for the editors and journalists with whom I worked and am incredibly proud of what we achieved,” Greenwald said in an emailed statement. “The decision to leave was not an easy one, but I was presented with a once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity that no journalist could possibly decline.” (...)
