Arthur Silber has this post on Edward Snowden and his and “responsible journalists” controlled nature of the release or non-release of documents on NSA criminality. Now, I’m sure there are a lot of people who say that Snowden is a hero for whistleblowing. But, as Silber has pointed out, given that only 1 or 2% of the Snowden documents have been made public, they really have been State-sanctioned leaks.

Arthur Silber explains it in the link above, and check out all the links in his post for further information.
