Media Blacks Out New Snowden Interview The Government Doesn’t Want You to See

By: Jay Syrmopoulos
This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an  interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been  intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news  outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost  immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and  broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview,  Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance  programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.

He states that his “breaking point” was “seeing Director of National  Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress” denying the existence of a  domestic spying programs while under questioning in March of last year. Mr.  Snowden goes on to state that, “The public had a right to know about these  programs. The public had a right to know that which the government is doing in  its name, and that which the government is doing against the public.”

It seems clear that the virtual blackout of this insightful interview is yet  another deliberate attempt to obfuscate the truth from the view of the American  public. The media has continually attempted to shill the official government  lies about mass domestic surveillance programs, justifying them as necessary to  fight the “War on Terror”, while attempting to painting Mr. Snowden as a  traitor.

The attempt to bury this interview by the government/corporate symbiosis has  extremely dark implications. Additionally, the fact that government officials  have openly talked about assassinating Mr. Snowden cannot be taken lightly, and Mr.  Snowden obviously takes these threats to his life very seriously. Sadly, the  reality of the US government assassinating an American citizen is not beyond the  realm of possibility in the age we live in.

  1. I posted this link on Facebook because I am deeply concerned about its global ramifications. A US citizen/resident commented saying simply ” The Snowdon interview aired publicly in the US on national news media” which seem to contradict what you have said in this article. Can you clarify whether or not this video was air in the US news media because no one wants to be accused of telling lies.
