@ggreenwald Glenn, begin at no.44 and work forwards in time searching each alert for 'Cohen' http://tinyurl.com/7du782r
What does it say that
@ggreenwald, a US political analyst, is all but alone in challenging the tsunami of UK 'liberal' smears on #Assange?
@OliverKamm @NickCohen4 @ggreenwald Wrong! ML: 'We recognise the bloody ruthlessness of the Syrian Baathists.. continued now by.. Bashar'
@OliverKamm @ggreenwald Wrong! ML: 'we have never written about the Srebrenica massacre...other than to affirm that it was a massacre' @OliverKamm @ggreenwald ML uses many 100s of sources - it's desperate to smear us with comments we didn't cite on issues we didn't discuss! @OliverKamm That's how reliable your smears are Kamm. To paraphrase @ggreenwald: shocking that a neocon warmonger dislikes Media Lens
@DeborahJaneOrr 'Of course Assange should face the charges brought against him in Sweden.' What 'charges'? http://tinyurl.com/794462u
@suzanne_moore Who do we 'support'? Do you have any idea actually?
A first - the Guardian's Suzanne Moore has blocked us before we even tried to follow her!
@ggreenwald Peter Beaumont, another journalist blocking us even from following his tweets or writing to him. And incivility is not our bag
@ggreenwald Beaumont not a fan of ours after this dissection of his less than 'superb demolition' of Chomsky in 2006: http://bit.ly/MDlHNJ
@queenchristina_ No, nothing whatever to do with conspiracy theories. Is your view of Assange based on a similarly rigorous investigation?
#Assange: Guardian quietly issues another correction (see end of article) http://tinyurl.com/c7hnvpb @jamesrbuk Save your head - looks like you misquoted Benn
@jamesrbuk The solitary confinement was December 2010, not 'last ten days' - maybe you could let Peter Beaumont know.
@jamesrbuk No doubt. But an amazing error, repeated by @alexhern in the New Statesman http://tinyurl.com/cun7m3t
@johnnypaige @Glinner Johnny, why are we 'chomskyite whack jobs'? Is +that+ engagement and serious debate from the Guardian?
