The Anti-Fandom of Glenn Greenwald
Many others have devoted webpages, or in some cases entire sites, to pointing out Glenn’s faults: his anti-fans. In fact the only people with more devoted anti-fans than Glenn are, or have at some point been, autocratic dictators of fair-sized nations.
Here we catalog some of those pages and similar material, loosely arranged by subject matter.
