Leakers seek out advocacy journalists

Editor's note: Howard Kurtz is the host of CNN's "Reliable Sources."

(CNN) - When Edward Snowden decided to expose the administration's massive surveillance program, the CIA contractor turned to journalists he knew would be sympathetic.

By approaching the Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, a liberal columnist for a liberal newspaper, and filmmaker Laura Poitras, who Greenwald has credited with "exposing truths that are adverse to U.S. government policy," Snowden was following an increasingly common path for leakers of sensitive material: Find a like-minded soul in the media. And in doing so, they are bypassing the establishment press, which is then forced to play catch-up.

    Last Sunday You used the term "fake news" referring to Jon Stewart. Not so. He uses actual facts and statements, which I follow up on in the local news media. I have always found them to be true and accurate. Not Jons remarks, but the facts on the news piece. Most of the news Media never follows up with the facts once it is shown that their statements where totally false or misleading. Take a look at the IRS story. I would like to see someone keep repeating the facts. They did nothing wrong. Congress passed IRS Rules and then get angry when they did their Job.

    I made a prediction a couple months ago that Kurtz was flirting with FOX.. all his "reporting" started defending the loud mouths he once use to criticize. His "Objectiveness" was out the window and his broadcast .. as I said then..."Like he was auditioning for FOX." Good riddance to the man who lost his moral compass for more money.
