Edward Snowden’s Alternative Christmas Message

First, a little bit of context for those of you not in a part of the British Commonwealth: on Christmas Day at 3 PM GMT the BBC broadcasts the Queen’s annual Christmas message. The UK’s underdog broadcast television network, Channel 4, has its own alternative message and this year its programmers chose Edward Snowden, the infamous NSA whistleblower, to deliver it. Channel 4 has been hard at work taking down the message from YouTube as fast as it can, so this version is via CNN with some commentary.

    Well, that’s all fine about privacy, but what about that guy in the red suit who knows when you’ve sleeping and knows when you’re awake, who knows when you’ve been bad or good… etc. What about that huh?

    While Greenwald figures out how to spend a quarter of a billion dollars of Omidyar’s, Paypal -no more donations for you, Wikileaks – money, why is it that only 1% of Mr. Snowden’s documents have been released?

  3. Is CNN even trying any more? The commentary after that video was like some Stephen Colbert-style inane establishment non-sense masquerading as journalism.
