A Woman Blogger, the NSA, US Senate, Real Journalists

When the pathetic US Senate (that includes you Senator Feinstein) tries to exclude bloggers from any definition of journalists, think of the following --

The Woman Who Knows the NSA’s Secrets - Newsweek: "Long before Edward Snowden leaked documents showing that the government was collecting every American’s phone records, Marcy Wheeler knew something fishy was going on. She was one of just a handful of people who in 2009 suspected that the government was using the USA Patriot Act to collect Americans’ personal records in bulk. On June 5, 2013, Snowden proved her right. You’ve probably never heard of Wheeler, a Michigan blogger who plies her trade far away from the closed world of Washington, D.C., but her work enables journalists, lawyers, advocates and experts to unmask the government’s secret spying apparatus."

By the way, what idiot state elected Feinstein to the US Senate? Don't they have ANYONE better qualified and of sound mind to be a US Senator?
