Should jourrrrnalists face trial for treason?

The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald slammed NBC's "Meet the Press" host David Gregory on Sunday for asking whether he should be charged with a crime for "aiding and abetting" former government contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked classified information to him about the National Security Agency's surveillance operations.

"To the extent that you have aided and abetted Snowden, even in his current movements, why shouldn't you, Mr. Greenwald, be charged with a crime?" Gregory asked on the news show.

Greenwald immediately rejected the premise of the question, calling it an "pretty extraordinary" question for a journalist to ask another peer.

"I think it's pretty extraordinary that anybody who would call themselves a journalist would publicly muse about whether or not other journalists should be charged with felonies. The assumption in your question, David, is completely without evidence, the idea that I've aided and abetted him in any way," Greenwald responded, speaking via video satellite from Brazil.

Hey, David Gregory ... way to go after that disgusting traitor.

Now,  have a question for you ... ready?

Question - If a revolution starts and politicians and bureaucrats are being charged with treason, should we put many of you "jourrrrnalists" on trial for aiding and abetting?

Answer - Yes, I think we should.
