Alan Dershowitz thinks leftwing blogger Glenn Greenwald hates America.
After critiquing National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden on CNN Wednesday, the Harvard Law School professor turned to Greenwald, who first printed Snowden’s leaks for the Guardian newspaper.
“As far as Greenwald is concerned, you know, he’s an ideologue,” Dershowitz told CNN’s Dana Bash. “I don’t think he would have revealed this information if it had been critical of Venezuela or Cuba or the Palestinian Authority. You know, he doesn’t like America. He doesn’t like Western democracies. He’s never met a terrorist he didn’t like. So he’s a very hard left ideologue that uses this to serve his political agenda, not simply to reveal information in a neutral way. That makes him different from Wikileaks I think.”
Bash noted that Greenwald, who had just appeared on CNN in the segment before Dershowitz’s, was “not here to defend himself.”
“Just to be fair, I think he would call himself somebody who’s for civil liberties and not that he doesn’t like America,” Bash added.
