EDWARD SNOWDEN'S FATHER SPEAKS OUT: Anderson Cooper talks to Lon Snowden and Bruce Fein, his lawyer
360 NEWS & BUSINESS BULLETIN: Susan Hendricks
BLOGGER'S COMMENTARY: When I saw Lon Snowden and Bruce Fein on AC360 again tonight I wanted to bang my head on the desk, but that would have just made my head hurt! For all the talk from the above duo and Glenn Greenwald (who apparently is only appearing on AC360/CNN these days because other media has backed off from him) about the need to have the discussion on the alleged "spying" by the NSA - and I agree it is a discussion we need to have along with the data being gathered by companies and internet sites, etc. - AC360 has done zero investigative reporting on the issue. Instead we hear about Medicare fraud in the state of California. Perhaps instead of giving Lon Snowden and company a platform to bash the "current administration" they could have a reporter covering the hearings in Washington, DC - and not a politician, but an actual unbiased reporter. Perhaps the 360 staff could be scouring the information Ed Snowden has released and Anderson could report on it's contents - thus informing the public vs. giving one side a platform night after night. I think the final straw for me tonight was when Bruce Fein said is was time for the "patriots to save us from this administration" and there was no challenge what-so-ever from Anderson. Not sure what happened to the Anderson Cooper that stood up to Mary Landrieu, but he's been missing for a long time now. - Wonz.
