Greenwald Interviewed by Harper's
Did you see the Oscars? In There Will Be Blood, Daniel Day-Lewis's character says, "I hate people. I want to make enough money to get away from them."
If you make $800,000 a year reporting on CNN or MSNBC or Fox News, haven't you gotten "away from" the people, cf. the above quote?
"Also, reporters are bored by the substantive issues. They don’t have the same problems that drive the voters, most who face serious economic insecurities. Media celebrities are well compensated, they live in New York and Washington, and are unaware of voters’ sensibilities. To them politics is a game, a race, where what matters is endless speculation about who’s winning and who’s losing."
