  •  Both Greenwald and Poitras "disseminate"...? (10+ / 0-)

    In the dust cloud surrounding Greenwald's partner, David Miranda, getting detained in London was the info that the byline on stories based on Snowden's documents may include others, in other publications, if you follow out the inference the NY Times'  allows:

    "[Miranda] had spent the previous week in Berlin visiting Laura Poitras, a documentary filmmaker who has also been helping to disseminate Mr. Snowden’s leaks, to assist Mr. Greenwald."
    I don't know if it means anything viz Der Spiegel, but Poitras is working out of Berlin.  
    Note - The Times says that Poitras left Snowden in Hong Kong last June 15 because she was already getting hassled there in China.  She's in Germany to avoid American strong arm law enforcement.
    Poitras flew directly to Berlin, where the previous fall she rented an apartment where she could edit her documentary without worrying that the F.B.I. would show up with a search warrant for her hard drives. “There is a filter constantly between the places where I feel I have privacy and don’t,” she said, “and that line is becoming increasingly narrow.” She added: “I’m not stopping what I’m doing, but I have left the country. I literally didn’t feel like I could protect my material in the United States, and this was before I was contacted by Snowden."
