Give 'em a break, G! They're just following (as they noted) their precedent in not telling everyone what they knew, when they knew it, about the "spy on everyone & everything" program. I can't wait for a few years from now, when the NYT tells us what it knows today. If they're still in business. Maybe Rupes will buy 'em. He can keep a secret. For a price.
