Edward Snowden is government whistleblower who has fled the country. Edward Scissorhands is character with scissors for hands from a 1990 movie by Tim Burton. They're unrelated, but that has apparently slipped past the folks at Headline News. 

Internet smartass Jon Hendren, landed a talking head spot on HLN to talk about Edward Snowden, but flipped it around and trolled the station by defending Edward Scissorhands.

That's just good trolling, kids.
