Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com blogger and former constitutional lawyer, discusses the military’s formal charging of Bradley Manning for giving classified information to WikiLeaks, Wired‘s refusal to disclose the full chat logs between informant Adrian Lamo and Manning and why whistleblowers who embarrass government are typically subjected to the Daniel Ellsberg treatment.

Ten minutes from the incomprable Glen Greenwald, "...and you see that over and over again where the dirty work of the govt is done by the largest media outlets, that is their role ...when it wanted to spread war prop about Jessica Lynch's ...heroic rescue by the marines... all of those lies ...planted with the Wash Post...uncritical reporters simply repeat what they are told by gov t sources and do their dirty work for them"
