39. Most of those you mentioned are either dead or they are not who the general public get their

news from.

Neither is Greenwald, he is a blogger who gained prominence because of his thoughtful, well informed assaults on Bush's illegal policies.

He is doing nothing different today, continuing to expose the illegal policies that were initiated by Bush. Which is why he continues to gain readers and unlike most bloggers, has moved into the mainstream news arena.

Our 'news' reporters consist of people reading from memos handed to them by their Corporate bosses. There are NO investigative journalists on the MSM where most Americans get their news.

Which is why young people turn to the internet and as a result are far more informed than their parents.

Fox, CNN which used to be a worthwhile news organization, MSNBC, who has fired people, like Ashley Banfield for speaking the truth, once, at a private event, THIS is where the average American go for news. And this is why they are so removed from the rest of the world.

Greenwald needs to be careful. The hatred towards him is similar to what we saw towards other reporters who dared to tell the truth.

Not to mention that we know he has targeted for a 'smear campaign' to 'shut him up' by Government Contractor, HB Gary. That alone increased his status even among those who don't care for his views, but do respect the 1st Amendment.
