Here's just one additional example as to why The Gadfly does not give a rat's fucking bunghole about the U.S. government's, or the lapdogs in the American mainstream media for that matter, screams of "traitor!" aimed at NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden:

When I made the choice to report aggressively on top-secret NSA programs, I knew that I would inevitably be the target of all sorts of personal attacks and smears. You don't challenge the most powerful state on earth and expect to do so without being attacked. As a superb Guardian editorial noted today: "Those who leak official information will often be denounced, prosecuted or smeared. The more serious the leak, the fiercer the pursuit and the greater the punishment."http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jun/26/nsa-revelations-response-to-smears
To get right to the point -- the lazy, incompetent, gutless U.S. media, apparently, is infinitely more interested in digging in to Edward Snowden's pre-NSA personal life, his ex-girlfriend's life, and now are surreptitiously probing journalist Glenn Greenwald's personal past, because by their calculations, character assassination is a much simpler undertaking than actually investigating why the U.S. government is mass spying on and hacking in to American citizen's private communications without probable cause.
But, horror of horrors, if anyone dare request that the media just do their fucking job, which at one point in time in American press history meant reporting the unbiased truth to the American people - it just ain't gonna happen. Unfortunately for all of us, and more importantly for democracy, they are just much too busy sniffing in people's underwear drawers to bother with such a troublesome business as defending the constitution from enemies at home.
All the more more reason The Gadfly urges his dear readers to eschew the viewing of any news shows on network or cable television and urge others to do the same. Your media obviously have taken it upon themselves to act as water carriers for their corporate paymaster sugar daddies and the powerful intelligence apparatus, which is now disturbingly corporatized as well, so why would anyone, ever, look to them for the truth on any matter, trivial or significant?
Do yourself a favor dear reader and preserve the integrity of your worldly knowledge faculties. . .
Turn the mainstream media OFF!
Turn them OFF NOW!!
P.S. : And yes - it is actually true (per the post title) that Glenn Greenwald is gay, which as you can rightly imagine dear reader, means goddamn for certain that an army of peckerheaded little NSA moles is presently hard at work burrowing in to his private life from moment of birth to the present in a cynical attempt to dig up any sexual related dirt they can, regardless of significance. For by doing so, they seek to make the story about Mr. Greenwald instead of their own criminal and unconstitutional actions.
