Snowden Hits Snow Job

Whatever you think of Edward Snowden, you have to admit that he hit the nailed on the head when he criticized media coverage of the latest charges, from top leaders in Congress, that he "may well" have been working for the Russians, or got help from them, when he nabbed all those NSA docs.  All too true:
On Sunday, the “Meet the Press” host, David Gregory, also asked Mr. Rogers’s Senate counterpart, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, whether she agreed with his suspicions that Mr. Snowden had been helped by the Russians. She replied: “He may well have.”
Mr. Snowden criticized news organizations for treating such remarks as newsworthy.
“It’s not the smears that mystify me,” Mr. Snowden told The New Yorker, “it’s that outlets report statements that the speakers themselves admit are sheer speculation.”
