Is journalism being criminalised? Interview with Dirty Wars author Jeremy Scahill

In the wake of whistleblower Edward Snowden's leak of NSA files, Jeremy Scahill, author of Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield and featured reporter in the new documentary film of the same name, says under the Obama administration journalists are being intruded upon and whistleblowers are being charged with crimes. Scahill is also a national security correspondent for the Nation.

1. Considering the state of journalism now

 

Its asinine to presume all journalists are on the up and up. Blaming Obama is a sad pathetic way of deflecting the real issue, that money is ruling the agendas now.

Correa of Ecuador, the hero of the Snowden worshipping crowd, had enough and basically shut down those 'journalists' he felt were deliberately trying to undermine his administration. You can't do that shit here, and those hiding under the guise of journalism know it.
