Wikipedia: Effort To Change Description of Snowden From "Dissident" To "Traitor" Traced To U.S. Senate


Edward Snowden 003

Jonathan Turley
The desperate efforts of Congress to change the public view of Edward Snowden appears to be continuing. This week someone in the Senate attempted to change the description of Snowden as a "dissident" to a "traitor" on Wikipedia. The White House and congressional leaders are clearly alarmed that many view Snowden as a whistleblower. The media groups like NPR previously yielded to pressure not to call Snowden a whistleblower. The media groups like NPR previously yielded to pressure not to call Snowden a whistleblower and instead use the less flattering term “leaker.” However, that is not enough because it does not seem to have helped....
  Good for Wikipedia. Just because Obama and his minions say it do not make it so. Edward Snowden is a whistleblower and for that he is under attack. He did the American people a service by exposing the sins of an administration that went rogue from day one.
