Whether or not you agree with Snowden's actions - hero or traitor - or, Greenwald's "style", Mr. Greenwald is not the first journalist who has broken away from the "traditional" way of reporting news.
Not too long ago, Glenn Beck, of Fox News, left his comfortable evening news program to start his own radio and Internet outreach and is doing well "on his own".
No one denies that in the U.S., most, if not all journalists are hampered by the politically correct crowd and whoever is paying their salaries. In time, I believe we will witness the resignations of more journalists from their "comfort zones" and returning to the basics of reporting facts on the ground. The lost years of propaganda teleprompters will be replaced with honest reporting.
