Американские СМИ - проститутки при власти

The Washington Post is facing criticism after its editorial board argued that Edward Snowden, the source of the paper's Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting on the National Security Agency, should accept some "criminal responsibility" for the leaks.
The editorial, which was published Saturday, called on Snowden to either stand trial on espionage charges or take a plea bargain from the U.S. government.
While the editorial called the issue of a presidential pardon "complicated," it said "President Obama's answer should continue to be 'no.'"
Glenn Greenwald called the Post "the first-ever paper to explicitly editorialize for the criminal prosecution of its own paper's source."
Greenwald led the coverage of the Snowden leaks for the Guardian U.S., which shared the 2014 Pulitzer with the Post. Greenwald, now with online publication "The Intercept," called the editorial an "ignominious feat in U.S. media history."
Отсюда

Вашингтон Пост в редакторской статье призывает Обаму не давать президентского помилования Сноудену. Представляете? Это та самая газета, которая получила Пулитцеровскую премию за статьи, в которых Сноуден разоблачал слежку правительства за гражданами США без санкции суда. Где, получается, независимая пресса? А вот здесь она - в заднице, трясясь от угодливой услужливости перед своими владельцами.
