Glenn Greenwald resigns from The Intercept

Glenn Greenwald

Glenn Greenwald has resigned from The Intercept, a news organization he co-founded in 2014, because of its refusal to publish an article he wrote about Hunter and Joe Biden.

Ironically, the original idea behind The Intercept was that journalists would be able to write without editorial censorship of content.

I’ve long admired Greenwald and have read his writings since he was just a lawyer with his own WordPress blog.  He is going back to being an individual blogger.  Here are the first three posts on his new blog, plus The Intercept’s response.

The Aftermath of My Move Back to Independent Journalism by Glenn Greenwald.  [Added 10/31/2020]  Greenwald already is among the top 10 Substack bloggers in terms of number of subscribers.  He took a big risk.  His former employer not only paid him a six-figure salary, but provided security to protect him from kidnapping and assassination attempts—a real danger for him because he lives in Brazil and has fearlessly criticized its authoritarian government.
