24. Actually no. He and Snowden didn't tell the truth about the NSA.

 

Like everything else Greenwald writes, he embellished a smidgen of fact to make it appear much worse than it was. It's a tactic many liars use. He is a very good liar.

And Snowden eventually stopped doing media appearances because every time he appeared he told several additional lies which were promptly discovered.

Greenwald has two specific agendas that tend to dovetail. #1 is that he is a right-wing Libertarian and #2 is that he is a Negative Nationalist against the US. It's not clear to me which of these is more important to him. If I was forced to guess I would say that #2 is slightly more important. The point is that he will twist every story to fit one or both of those agendas.
