A TIME magazine reporter caused ire on Twitter Saturday night when he said that he "can't wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out" Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.Grunwald deleted his tweet, showing that he doesn't have the slightest idea how the Internet actually works. Add idiocy to viciousness.
Michael Grunwald's tweet, since deleted, was quickly met with outrage and bewilderment. Glenn Greenwald, who recently broke several revelations about NSA surveillance programs based on documents provided to him by leaker Edward Snowden, was particularly vocal in expressing his disgust with Grunwald's statement.
My reaction was "Time Magazine is still around? Who knew?" But this is a handy indicator of the MSM's bias - shilling for authoritarians as long as the authoritarians aren't Republicans.
