Glenn Greenwald Gets Results
As noted here, Glenn Greenwald recently raised a red flag about General David Petraeus giving an “exclusive” interview to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt and asked to have the general appear on Alan Colmes’ liberal show, on which he’s a contributor, to demonstrate that the war is a national endeavor, not a partisan one. He was informed that there was a backlog of requests but that his would be added to the list.
Well, Robert Bluey reports that Petraeus appeared on Colmes’ show yesterday for 30 minutes.
Greenwald is too shy to toot his own horn about this — he hasn’t mentioned it at his own site — but kudos to him. This just shows what a little persistence can accomplish.
