From Greg Mitchell who's been blogging on the WikiLeaks release at The Nation for the last month, CNN's Jessica Yellin responds to Glenn Greenwald -- inadequately:

Jessica Yellin responds to Glenn Greenwald critique (see below) at CNN blog -- but completely ignores his main point about her questions betraying a double standard on (or lack of awareness about) journalists routinely publishing top secret information thanks to leaks vs. WikiLeaks making such evidence available. Watch the video again -- claiming she was just asking provocative questions doesn't cut it.

Here's John's post from yesterday on the interview in case you missed it -- It's a sad day when journalists collaborate with the government, again!
