Girlfriend’s Blog Sheds Light On Snowden’s Time In Hawaii
A blog authored by Edward Snowden’s girlfriend provides potential answers to several questions about the NSA leaker’s time working for the agency in Hawaii. The blog, which has since been deleted, also indicates Snowden may have enjoyed a final visit with his family before seeking refuge in Hong Kong last month.
TPM has takein it upon themselves to reveal every possible detail about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. To what end? That remains either a mystery of investigative journalism or is found in the newspaper rack next to “sensationalism”. The last piece in TPM’s great investigation seems to be Snowden’s girlfriend’s blog, L’s journey: http://box732.bluehost.com/suspended.page/disabled.cgi/lsjourney.com
(the site has been suspended, mind you). Reading the article on TPM, I highly question their motives. What great news came out of this blog? A picture of a man in a new apartment that might be Snowden (or not and even if, so what???). A sad girlfriend (duh!). A visit from his parents to Hawaii (maybe to see him, maybe not). I was taught in journalism school that this type of facts can be called “speculative” at best and while I agree that Mr. Snowden has become a person of interest, I wish TPM journalists would dedicate their time to searching for hard facts and writing relevant articles!
