In a confrontational interview with MSNBC anchor Kristen Welker, progressive journalist Glenn Greenwald said that he's a defender of Edward Snowden's actions in the same sense that MSNBC is a defender of President Obama.

Greenwald said that he believes "every journalist has an agenda. We're on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified, the agenda of the Republican Party is undermined. That doesn't mean the people who appear on MSNBC aren't journalists. They are."

"I do defend [Edward Snowden]," Greenwald said, "just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day."
