There was a minor social media kerfuffle in the twitterverse today caused by the above tweet by one Michael Greenwald, who was shamed into deleting it and eating social media crow.
Big fucking deal right?
The moron is just another MSM shill. Retraction notwithstanding, of course he would love to see DroneBama do Assange...
But wait a minute, perhaps there is moron to this story than meets the fringe lowbrow eye.
Do we care that this MSM shill writes articles like this: Tread On Me...The past few months show that the government must protect the public even if it has to limit individual rights?

Nope...Who gives a flying fuck what this "Senior National Correspondent" thinks.
Afterall, Time has an express one way ticket to the same dust bin of history as its MSM doppelganger, Newsweek.
Do we care that he is on leave helping Turbo Timmy write his forthcoming science fiction fantasy about the financial crisis?
Nope, not me. Just more confirmation that he is just another run of the mill MSM douche bag.
Here is what I care about folks...
"California Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed an amendment to the Media Shield Law, a law targeting the First Amendment which would limit the law’s protection only to “real reporters,” not bloggers and other upstart alternative media types.
A real reporter, declared Feinstein during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, is “a salaried agent” of a media company like the New York Times or ABC News, [and presumably Time Magazine] not a “shoestring operation with volunteers and writers who are not paid.”
Feinstein voiced her concern “that the current version of the bill would grant a special privilege to people who aren’t really reporters at all, who have no professional qualifications,” like bloggers and citizen journalists.
Last week, Senator Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, worried the Shield Law, if passed, would be used to protect whistleblowers and others who ferret out government corruption."

Pause for air...
You see, these modern American Nazis think that the First Amendment is for the exclusive fucking benefit of paid MSM shills like good little boy Grunwald.
Unpaid bloggers and other upstart alternate media types should be excluded from protection by Media Shield Laws and the like.
Can someone please direct me to the clause that says the First Amendment only protects paid journalists?
I won't even ask, paid by whom?
You know what, I am sick and fucking tired of listening to these fucking Vichy Nazis who care little and have no fucking idea what the fucking Constitution says.
Fuckety fuckety fuck!!!
Yes, fucking Nazis.
That woman (I use the fucking term loosely) is a full fucking blown Nazi!
Pontificating to us about what is good and what is bad for the common good of the fucking Homeland.
Oh and BT fucking W, she had no idea that the fucking NSA was manufacturing thousands of FISA violations, at least "not wittingly", to use a Crapperism.
She is a lying fucking Nazi as well.
Oh yes, they didn't "intentionally" abuse their fucking authority.
It was just another erroneous fucking unfortunate mistake (thousands fold).
Can you just hear Dr Goebbels ranting about the evils of upstart/fringe alternative media types.
I sure can.
I am pretty sure the whistleblowers and upstart alternative media types did not fare so well on his fucking watch either.
"It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion."
And I am sure the Herr Doctor would relish the idea of droning whistleblowers and people like Assange.
Somebody please put Frau Sturm Trooper Feinstein on the California High Speed Rail to Camp Palooneyville!
