Snowden Interview Blackout in US media

In response to msmolly at Firedoglake and her piece: Over Easy: The New Snowden Interview Blackout

A database search for US publications shows just 1 result for “snowden” and “interview” since Jan26: WashPo ran a story on Jan27.

Yahoo News re-printed the AFP story (what? i know!).

NYTimes ran a review on Feb06 of The Snowden Files by Luke Harding without mentioning interview; same with CNN.com review of the book on Feb03. The NYT Review scoffs at Harding’s claim that US media are ”deferential towards the president.”

Maybe print is ignoring the interview merely because “An English-language transcript was not immediately available” (as per WashPo)?
