In the second edition of the BFP Roundtable, Sibel Edmonds, Guillermo Jimenez, and James Corbett discuss the controversy surrounding Edmonds’ latest series of articles on the Greenwald/Omidyar/PayPal/NSA connection. We talk about the glacial pace at which the Snowden documents are being released, Greenwald’s book and video deals, the new news venture with eBay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, the things that Greenwald doesn’t report on, and the public’s tendency to put people on pedestals. Don’t miss this controversial edition of the BFP Roundtable.
