Self-unaware quotes of the day

“What was disillusioning about l'affair Charlie Hebdo was not basic misunderstandings -- which might have been eased through discussion—but immediate name-calling & denunciations; disrespect for a dissenting opinion, in the very name of ‘freedom’ of speech. Hard to comprehend.”
- Joyce Carol Oates on Twitter
“It’s reevaluate strongly held opinions and to publicly admit that your original opinions weren’t accurate.”
- Glenn Greenwald on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell praising those who’ve retracted their earlier ignorant attacks on Edward Snowden
