91. Just in time...another announcement:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024685289#post56

In a surprise appearance via satellite robot at the 2014 TED conference in Vancouver, Snowden said there is still a lot of reporting to be done, including diving deeper into the accusation that the NSA tricks companies into building backdoors into their systems that make data vulnerable to hackers across the world.

Breaking: Snowden to rehash stuff and pretend it's new, again.

Greenwald and Snowden can't admit that they're recycling information, each time with a new spin.

The problem for them seems to be what Greenwald alluded to previously : Snowden may have a lot of information in his possession, but much of it is irrelevant to domestic spying.

After talking about documents they can't or has no intention of publishing, that's all they can do is rehash and spin.

Remember this:

"I realize Carl Bernstein hasn't done any actual reporting for a couple decades now, but he should nonetheless take the time to read what he's opining on," he wrote. "The Reuters article he's referencing is a complete distortion of what I actually said in that interview. The point I made is the opposite one: that Snowden has been as responsible as a whistleblower can be in ensuring that only information the public should know is revealed, but not gratuitously harmful information."
