Here's a challenge for Media - STOP using his name. It's obvious that his narcissism is driving his actions. This guy is no longer deserving of coverage - especially his name. He wormed his way into govt security, gathered up as much incriminating evidence and then ran away - to China-Russia-and hopefully to VEN or ECU of all places - in order to publish his findings. And he preaches FREEDOM?

Narcissism is driving Snowden? You are just repeating talking points. Edward Snowden did the most selfless thing imaginable in order to expose those violating our privacy rights. And the majority of U.S. citizens agree with him bymore than 2 to 1 in recent poles.

Don't blame the whistle blower. Blame the NSA for its espionage against American citizens...

This guy complains about erosion of personal freedom, runs off to China, then requests asylum in Russia? Maybe you'll point out to me how China and Russia cherish personal privacy for its citizens?

That has always been the cost of hero's that stand up to the corruption and lawlessness of a country. Just think of all the great names that fall into that description.

This is pitiful your willing to give up my constitutional rights for your safety. Well buddy I wont give it up easily. This man is a hero and Americans that believe in the constitution will agree with me. The constitution has been died for thousands of times but you will just give it up. That's pitiful.
