Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Back-biting: I rarely read what Greenwald has to write, I guess, because I've always favored trial lawyers' craftiness. (They actually test "theory" that can wind up having people killed or canonized.) And he's no trial lawyer. No  Maybe the Greta van Sustern of the innerboobs. She snagged a ride on O.J.; he's got Christ Snowden. So. with emptywheel and the Dkos minor-league still in the rear-view mirror, I can't help but wonder if this item is a sign that the "Russiagate" star is indeed falling.*
"The absence of women in the New York magazine piece on Glenn is sadly all too typical of how women's contributions and voices are erased from stories in which they've played a central role," said Jesselyn Radack, a lawyer who has represented Snowden and the whistleblowers Bill Binney and Thomas Drake. In response to a similar complaint I made on Twitter, Greenwald agreed: "The omission you cite is especially notable because most of the key people in my journalism career have been women," including Reed, the stalwart blogger Heather "Digby" Parton, former Salon editor Joan Walsh, former Guardian editor Janine Gibson, FireDogLake founder Jane Hamsher, and First Look Media co-founder Laura Poitras.

Hamsher! That's the name I'd forgotten, the one behind the "blackface" get-up during Obama's primary campaign. Classy.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
