Is Glenn Greenwald the Future of News? is an interesting debate between the NYT’s Bill Keller and Glenn Greenwald.

Myself, I thought Keller was losing, but just on points, until he first knocked himself down by defending the NYT’s failure to call torture “torture” when the US government does it. Then he finished the self-TKO by defending David Brooks…

Here, by the way, is another take on how to read the debate: Marcy Wheeler (emptywheel), The Institutional Subjectivity of the White Affluent US Nation.

Bonus good read because I’m late posting the above: Kevin John Heller, Why Is Britain Intentionally Using Weapons of Mass Destruction?.
