'They want to punish her': Glenn Greenwald flames media for refusing to defend Catherine Herridge against Biden campaign attack
washingtonexaminer.com ^ | 5/15/20 | Spencer Neale

The founder of a liberal-leaning media outlet is defending a CBS reporter who was attacked for breaking the news of a request from 16 individuals to unmask the identity of then-national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Speaking with Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Friday, the Intercept co-founder Glenn Greenwald praised reporter Catherine Herridge for her "extremely reliable" reporting on the Russian collusion narrative in spite of attacks from 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden's campaign staff.

"I think Catherine Herridge is a reporter of the highest integrity and professionalism," Greenwald told MacCallum. "I find it extremely ironic because every time President Trump has insulted or attacked a journalist popular among mainstream media outlets, they proclaim that the republic is coming to an end, that it's an assault on the free press."

Greenwald said Herridge is being attacked because she has presented facts that run counter to prevailing narratives in the media about President Trump's administration.

On Wednesday, Biden's senior adviser, Andrew Bates, attacked Herridge after the released list of names who had received the Flynn unmasking document included the Democratic front-runner.

"Here, we have the Biden campaign viciously attacking a reporter who is as straight of a shooter as it gets," Greenwald said. "She doesn't really ever editorialize, she doesn't squabble with anybody, she just reports documents that are true."

Greenwald criticized Herridge's colleagues in the media who often rush to express "their solidarity as if they've been shipped off to the gulag" anytime Trump is critical of them but who are now turning their backs on a reporter who has been seen by many to be fair and accurate over the course of her career.

Greenwald’s analysis inspired my uber-leftist daughter-in-law to come out in favor of General Flynn. I was floored.

Sharyl Attkisson is at the top of my list in this profession.

I wondered why Herridge ever went to CBS. She is and has always been a fair unbiased reporter. I suppose CBS thought she might help them with their fake news reputation but of course they eat her alive. I have to assume they just want her voice silenced.

Greenwald is an honest liberal. We need more of them.

Agree. Greenwald’s politics are far left, but I can’t deny the man seems to be after truth whether it aligns with how political views or not. It’s a damn shame that’s such a rare quality that it is notable.

FOX tried to get rid of Herridge some years ago because she was deemed too old looking and not hawt enough.

She is 55. While not a FOX blonde, she is not unattractive. Shoulder length hair would help imo.

I am finding that as I get older the texture of my hair is changing and it looks terrible long. I’m using this time without access to my hairdresser to grow out the layers. Maybe once that happens it will be okay.

“as I get older the texture of my hair is changing and it looks terrible long.”

Ditto here. Very disappointing.

She reminds me of another guy.

He jumped into the swamp in DC to drain the swamp. Why would he do that ? He can't have believed that HE could make a difference.

Personally I happen to think that Cathrine Herridge is PLENTY HOT (or hawt in your terminology).

I think Fox got rid of her because she made all the rest of their BLOND BIMBETTES look and sound just as STUPID as they really are.
