Reuters Calls Greenwald Activist, Ban Said Snowden Misused, Spies at UN

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 8 -- Some were surprised when Reuters, reporting on US spying on Petrobras, said Globo's information came from "Glenn Greenwald, an American activist who has worked with fugitive former NSA analyst Edward Snowden."

 Isn't Snowden a whistleblower, and Greenwald a journalist?

  But this is NOT surprising from Reuters. Its bureau at the UN has repeatedly tried to get the investigative Press thrown out, going so far as to spy for the UN to do it.

  Reuters bureau chief Louis Charbonneau gave UN accreditation official Stephane Dujarric an internal document of the UN Correspondents Association, three minutes after promising not to do so. Story here, audio here, document here.

  So not only is Reuters amenable to the US' spying -- it does spying itself, for the UN.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Snowden "misused" information and his position, then insisted what he said was in a "private" meeting with the Iceland parliament.

  Reuters' Charbonneau and Michelle Nichols, not surprisingly, are routinely spoon-fed information by the UN and missions, particularly UN Peacekeeping as run by its fourth Frenchman in a row, Herve Ladsous.

   And when challenged or scrutinized as it was by Inner City Press last week on Syria, Reuters UN bureau expands its anonymous trolling, now through at least two counterfeit Inner City Press social media accounts.

  This has been documented this year to Reuters' big shots ranging from Stephen J. Adler, Editor in Chief, Paul Ingrassia, Deputy Editor in Chief, and Walden Siew, Top News to its former social media editor; nothing was done.

  It's Reuters which is an activist -- but in these cases, just an activist or assistant to power. And Power. Watch this site.
