5. There's a difference between saying things and reporting things which threaten the power structure

Hastings was one of the few that threatened the power structure. He took down McChrystal and was about to do another piece about Brennan I believe. Unfortunately he is no longer alive, but he was a true journalists.

Greenwald is another whose reporting is an actual threat to the power structure because hes not playing by their book

People like Rush, O'Reilly, heck even Maddow work inside the power structure. They say whatever their corporate bosses want to and tow the party line and tailor their messages to make it seem like their outsiders and fighters, but they' really aren't.
