I’m Wolf Blitzer, reporting from Washington. The assassination of President Kennedy begins right now.CNN’s Wolf Blitzer awkwardly and mistakenly makes a bad transition from breaking news on the Iran nuclear deal to what was a documentary on the JFK assassination Saturday night.
I’m gratified by my 14-month partnership with the Guardian and am particularly proud of what we achieved together over the last five months. Reporting the NSA story has never been easy, but it’s always been invigorating and fulfilling. It’s exactly why one goes into journalism and, in my view, is what journalism at its crux is about. That doesn’t mean that the journalists and editors who have worked on this story have instantly agreed on every last choice we faced, but it does mean that, on the whole, I leave with high regard for the courage and integrity of the people with whom I’ve worked and pride in the way we’ve reported this story.Glenn Greenwald says goodbye to The Guardian Thursday. Having been there for only 14 months, he heads over to a new endeavor with a pre-launch blog here. I, myself, am very excited to see how this will all end up. Also like how Greenwald ended his column with a call to action, “I hope everyone who believes in basic press freedoms will defend those journalistic outlets when they are under attack – all of them – regardless of how much one likes or does not like them.”
The attacks against the Guardian by both the government and representatives of the British press are unacceptable. What the Guardian is doing is both brave and important for our democracies. We fully support the paper.Dagens Nyheter (Sweden) editor-in-chief Peter Wolodarski says on The Guardian’s work in recent events, along with other journalists and editors of international papers.
