"Edward Snowden, NSA and GCHQ - Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger questioned - Truthloader"

Streamed live on Dec 3, 2013
Guardian editor, Alan Rusbridger, is having to defend his newspaper's coverage of the Edward Snowden, NSA and GCHQ story in front of a committee of MPs. Snowden, a former Booz Allen Hamilton contractor, became a whistleblower on the extent to which intelligence agencies are able to spy on people around the world when he passed documents to Glenn Greenwald. Since then spy programmes like PRISM, TEMPORA and XKeyscore have been revealed in the Guardian and other publications.

She brought me up to royalties, and people with stars and garters, and elderly ladies with gigantic tiaras and parrot noses. She spoke of me as her dearest friend. I had only met her once before, but she had took it into her head to lionize me.
-- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891

Lionize comes from the noun senses of lion meaning "an object of interest or note" and "a person of great importance, influence, charm, etc., who is much admired as a celebrity." It entered English in the early 1800s.

apparition A \ap-uh-RISH-uh n\

Quotes He turned his eyes towards the entrance and beheld a strange and dreadful apparition, a monstrous and fearful shape standing silently by his side. -- , Plutarch, Parallel Lives, translated by Bernadotte Perrin, 1917

Apparition ultimately derives from the Latin verb appārēre meaning "to appear," itself a derivative from the Latin via Old French. It entered English in the early 1500s.


There is just one cure for logophobia, and that is self-scrutiny--to discover whether one's reaction to a given term when seen in a newspaper or heard from a platform is really justified by the true significance.
-- , "Logophobia," The Nation, August 23, 1919
