Snowden Tells NYT That Media Sold Out After 9/11

Activist Post

NSA Whistleblower Edward Snowden had some harsh words for the New York Times and the rest of the corporate media.

In an interview with Snowden, put together by filmmaker Laura Poitras who worked with Glenn Greenwald on the original disclosure, the New York Times got an earful indictment of their complicity to government policies.

Snowden told the New York Times that the media "abdicated" its role as a watchdog of government after 9/11:
After 9/11, many of the most important news outlets in America abdicated their role as a check to power -- the journalistic responsibility to challenge the excesses of government -- for fear of being seen as unpatriotic and punished in the market during a period of heightened nationalism. From a business perspective, this was the obvious strategy, but what benefited the institutions ended up costing the public dearly. The major outlets are still only beginning to recover from this cold period.

The FBI responded favorably to conclusive forensic evidence by Architect, Richard Gage, AIA in 2009. Calling the video evidence "backed by thorough research and analysis", the letter of appreciation is signed by the FBI's Michael J. Heimbach, then head of the FBI's division of counterterrorism. Despite the need for full disclosure, the Media and congress have demonized honest investigation with insults of "conspiracy theory". See it here. http://saive.com

I hope that the truth about 9/11 is revealed some day soon.

Ed gallantly brought the controlled media out of their closets. Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg. All entities that possess the element of influence are dictated by the global bankster dynasty.
Universities are their breading/recruiting ground. Harvard, Princeton, Yale and etc... are prime Skull& Bone procurement hubs. Can you think of other "element of influence" establishments in the west and Europe?

The last part somehow got erased:
