Cet événement a l’air d’être passé inaperçu dans la presse française, où j’ai mal regardé en ce dimanche pluvieux ?

Ah non, quand même, bien que ce soit discret

The 28-year-old was held for nine hours, the maximum the law allows before officers must release or formally arrest the individual. According to official figures, most examinations under schedule 7 – over 97% – last under an hour, and only one in 2,000 people detained are kept for more than six hours.

Miranda was released, but officials confiscated electronics equipment including his mobile phone, laptop, camera, memory sticks, DVDs and games consoles.

Glenn Greenwald, le blogueur derrière les révélations sur les écoutes de la NSA

Depuis le 6 juin, le grand public s’est habitué au visage juvénile d’Edward Snowden, le « lanceur d’alerte » à l’origine des révélations sur la surveillance des communications menée en secret par les Etats-Unis. Un autre visage est passé plus inaperçu : celui de Glenn Greenwald. Cet Américain de 46 ans, blogueur reconnu et polémiste redouté, est pourtant l’auteur et la cheville ouvrière des articles égrenant cette tentaculaire affaire.
Cette dernière va comme un gant à ce détracteur de longue date de la surveillance d’Etat, défenseur acharné des libertés publiques, qui explique au Monde, qui l’a joint par téléphone à Rio de Janeiro, se voir autant comme un « activiste » que comme un « journaliste ».

From Tom Paine to Glenn Greenwald, we need partisan journalism | Jack Shafer

From Tom Paine to Glenn Greenwald, we need partisan journalism | Jack Shafer
http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2013/07/16/from-tom-paine-to-glenn-greenwald-we-need-partisan-journalism

New York Times business journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin called for the arrest of Greenwald (he later apologized) and Meet the Press host David Gregory asked with a straight face if he shouldn’t “be charged with a crime.” NBC’s Chuck Todd and the Washington Post‘s Walter Pincus and Paul Farhi also asked if Greenwald hadn’t shape-shifted himself to some non-journalistic precinct with his work.

The reactions by Sorkin, Gregory, Todd, Pincus, Farhi, and others betray — dare I say it? — a sad devotion to the corporatist ideal of what journalism can be and — I don’t have any problem saying it — a painful lack of historical understanding of American journalism. You don’t have to be a scholar or a historian to appreciate the hundreds of flavors our journalism has come in over the centuries; just fan the pages of Christopher B. Daly’s book Covering America: A Narrative History of a Nation’s Journalism for yourself. American journalism began in earnest as a rebellion against the state, and just about the only people asking if its practitioners belonged in jail were those beholden to the British overlords. Or consider the pamphleteers, most notably Tom Paine, whose unsigned screed Common Sense “shook the world,” as Daly put it.

(...)

My paean to activist and partisan journalism does not include the output of the columnists and other hacks who arrange their copy to please their Democratic or Republican Party patrons. (You know who you are.) Nor do I favor the partisan journalists who insult reader intelligence by cherry-picking the evidence, debate-club style, to win the day for their comrades. (...) ask yourself: Where would we be without our partisan journalists?
