The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald is a tyranny-loving phony who hates America. At least according to Alan Dershowitz, who took to Piers Morgan‘s show on Monday night to weigh in on Greenwald and the Edward Snowden ordeal. As he and Morgan responded to the spat between Greenwald and David Gregory, Dershowitz told viewers how he really felt.
About the issue with Gregory asking about Greenwald aiding and abetting Snowden, Morgan found it curious that Greenwald was so unprepared to face such a question.
He “should be prepared to answer questions about whether anything they have done — in cahoots with this guy, we don’t know how far he goes — anything they’ve done borders on criminality,” Morgan asserted. “I think it’s a perfectly reasonable question.”
Meanwhile, Dershowitz corrected that it is indeed in the “heartland of criminality,” and went on to voice his dislike for Greenwald.
“Greenwald, in my view, clearly has committed a felony,” Dershowitz charged. “Greenwald’s a total phony. He is anti-American, he loves tyrannical regimes, and he did this because he hates America. This had nothing to do with publicizing information.”
Interjecting to move the segment along, Morgan pushed back a little, noting his admiration for Greenwald and his provocative reporting. He’s not quite an enemy of America, Morgan countered.
