There may come a day of tragedy or celebration or remembrance when Mr. Greenwald gets out of bed and says to himself, "You know what? As the principal reporter on a huge, complicated and important story, maybe today I'll just report the news and not go completely out of my way to win the 'Trollingest Asshole on the Internet' award. And who knows? Maybe tomorrow, I'll stop making shit up and shrieking it at 150 decibels just to score ideological points!"
Maybe he'll even go so far as to retract things he said when it turns out they're just not true.
On that day -- the day when the Leader of the Indignanti stops going out of his way take a dump on his own message -- my faith in Mr. Greenwald's journalist credibility will increase sharply.
