When specifically did Glenn Greenwald misrepresent information?

Jay Best made this Official Information request to Prime Minister

The request was partially successful.

From: Jay Best

Dear Prime Minister,

According to the NZ Herald:
"But it has also said some of those with access to the Snowden documents - apparently including journalist Glenn Greenwald - "ha[s] a track record of misrepresenting, misinterpreting and misunderstanding information" [1]

Can you tell me specific examples that lead to this track record?

Can you please tell me if you believe that you personally have a track record of misrepresenting, misinterpreting or misunderstanding information? [2]

You are quoted as saying "Conclusions that have been drawn from the interview do not accurately reflect the GCSB's activities." [3]

Which specific conclusions made from Greenwald, Snowden, or any reported comments which do not accurately reflect the GCSB's activities?

Can you correct these misconceptions please?
If not, what benefit does complaining about this misinformation but failing to correct them, serve?
