Greenwald: NSA spying has nothing to do with terrorism
October 29, 2013 - Ben Klein
CNN's Christiane Amanpour interviews Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the NSA story in June.
"As a journalist, my question is not 'How can I best help the U.S. government," he told Amanpour. "My question is, 'How do I best inform people around the world of the things they should know.'"
Far too many journalists, he said, are willing to leave their reporting at "'American officials told me yesterday.'"
"There's no effort to investigate those claims or to find alternative voices," he said.
The new outfit's goal, he said, would aim to find "truly independent journalists, who don't want to be invited to Washington cocktail parties."
