Glenn Greenwald responds with impeccable logic and clarity to the biased, pro-Big-Brother-establishment questionings of BBC Newsnight "journalist" Kirsty Wark. In fact, he wipes the floor with her. As a UK citizen, I have to say it's pretty depressing to see such a display as hers. But then, as Noam Chomsky points out, people like this get to where they are precisely because they think the 'right' thoughts; those who think for themselves stay pushing the tea trolleys around the BBC studios. And, if we ever wanted an example of how the BBC is most definitely not the impartial and independent organisation it claims - and is widely celebrated - to be, this is it.
