The Paper of Record publishes a claim it knows to be false about the Snowden reporting. Why?

So now we're at a club, you watch the woman dancing--she is drunk
She is smiling, and she's falling in a slow descending funk
And the whole bar is loud and proud and everybody's trying, yeah
You play the artist, saying, "Is it how she moves, or how she looks?"
I say, it's loneliness, suspended to our own like grappling hooks
And as long as she's got noise, she's fine
But I could teach her how I learned to dance when the music's ended

Oh, and that's not petty
As cool as I am, I thought you'd know this already
I will not be afraid of women
I will not be afraid of women

In the interest of extending an olive branch, I’d even be willing to call her tactic “efficient.” Just look at the evidence: It took me a whole bunch of words and research to make my argument. It only took her 140 characters. It costs time and effort to chase down the truth, but lying? That’s fucking easy.
It's another attack on the progressive left, and it's just as duplicitous as ever.

Whoa, I didn't know the full album title of When the Pawn... is the following:

When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight and He'll Win the Whole Thing 'fore He Enters the Ring There's No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might so When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land and If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz You'll Know That You're Right.

Aaron Swartz on SOPA: "We won this fight because everyone made themselves the hero of their own story."
On January 18, 2012, the Internet went dark. Hundreds of websites went black in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). The bills would have created a “blacklist” of censored websites based on accusations of copyright infringement. SOPA was en route to quietly passing. But when millions of Americans complained to their members of Congress, support for the bill quickly vanished. We called it the Internet at its ...
