Re: Spare me
Snowden, for better or worse, has created a long tail of revelations that fits perfectly into the media's need to feed the news beast every day.  But it remains curious how much companies like Facebook have escaped greater scrutiny on just how much they are learning about each of us.  One imagines their file data on each of their members would  cause at least as much of an uproar as the NSA is, if American's could get a real glimpse at it.  We need an Edward Snowden to emerge from FB.

This explains perhaps why intelligence budgets are classified.

Re: Spare me
I certainly would not put more credence into what the NSA is saying over what Snowden has said.

The NSA has already been proven to 'not tell the truth' about it's surveillance programs.

Spare me
Social media is awash with people virtually linking hands with Zuckerberg and singing Kumbaya in solidarity. It's somewhat amusing. Let's all remember that Facebook makes money by mining and selling every scrap of user data that it thinks it can get away with. And, if you don't think FB (and many other big Internet companies) have been, and maybe still are, complicit with the NSA on programs like PRISM, I have a nice bridge for sale.

Oh, and at what point do we stop taking every scrap of information that Snowden leaks as gospel?
