Seymour Hersh has tough words for Obama, NSA, 'pathetic' US media

The Guardian interviews Seymour Hersh, whom the GOP once described as "the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist". Hersh is angry at America's "timid" journalists. He believes they have failed to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth. "The republic's in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple," he says.
