Mainstream Journalist and the Anthrax Investigation
Recommended: Glenn Greenwald's August 3, 2008, Salon post headlined "Journalists, their lying sources, and the anthrax investigation." It's a return to a discussion of what Greenwald calls "the role the establishment media played in obfuscating the anthrax investigation for so long and, at times, aiding in what was clearly the deliberate deceit on the part of Government sources.
"This is yet another case where the establishment media possesses -- yet steadfastly conceals -- some of the most critical facts about what the Government has done, and insists on protecting the wrongdoers," he contends. "Obtaining these answers from these media outlets is as important as obtaining them from the Government."
