The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald slammed NBC's "Meet the Press" host David Gregory on Sunday for asking whether he should be charged with a crime for "aiding and abetting" former government contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked classified information to him about the National Security Agency's surveillance operations.
"To the extent that you have aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements, why shouldn't you, Mr. Greenwald, be charged with a crime?" Gregory asked on the news show.
Greenwald immediately rejected the premise of the question, calling it an "pretty extraordinary" question for a journalist to ask another peer.
"I think it's pretty extraordinary that anybody who would call themselves a journalist would publicly muse about whether or not other journalists should be charged with felonies. The assumption in your question, David, is completely without evidence, the idea that I've aided and abetted him in any way," Greenwald responded, speaking via video satellite from Brazil.

Speak no evil against Obama.
See no evil and report against Obama.
Keep it up, Gregory, you won’t be allowed to speak either.
David Gregory is an Obama tool.
Small popcorn, please...hold the salt, easy on the butter.
Gregory is BHO’s “short arm”!
David Gregory can commit crimes and it's OK though.
Gregory is BHO’s “short arm”!
I think we all know that Gregory would be praising Snowden and anyone connected with him if this had happened on Bush’s watch. Gregory is a mindless partisan, not a journalist.
I am increasingly concerned that the American people may need to do something to push back this assault on basic civil liberties, or else we will quickly descend into the thousand years of darkness that Reagan warned us about.
If that were true David Gregory, then just about every journalist, State Department and CIA Shadow Warrior and Democrat staffer should also be tried, convicted, and hanged for treason.
Why was Gregory not charged with illegal possession of the high capacity magazines he waved around on Meet the Unimpressive?
Oh right...liberal corruption and crimes don’t count.
Treason is the act of giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
This guy is charged with treason for giving information to the American public?
If Snowden had done this during the Bush Administration Gregory and his goons would call him a hero
Considering that Obama sees the American public as his enemy, and I certainly hope he is becoming more right on that question, it almost sounds appropriate.
so even left wing journalists are seeing how some other left wing journalists and pundits are so biased

How anyone can watch these idiot Sunday “news” shows is beyond me.
