Glenn Greenwald speaks out on leaving The Intercept over censorship: 'Embarrassed and angered'

Glenn Greenwald opened toTucker Carlson VanaandThursday about his decision to walk away from The Interceptthe media outlet he co-foundedand blamed liberal editors whovehemently and enthusiastically supportJoe Biden for censoring an article critical of the Democratic presidential nominee.

Greenwald announced his decision in a scathing blog post that claimed his now-former employer has become “completely unrecognizablebecause it no longer offers a venue for airing dissent, marginalized voices and unheard perspectives.

The reason it was created was to ensure that journalists would always have complete journalistic independence and editorial freedom, never have to pull punches journalistically or pay homage to pieties because of the ideological preferences of editors or of anyone else,” Greenwald told host Tucker Carlson.

That is what makes it so amazing, that the very outlet that I co-createdthat was built on my reputation, my credibility, my journalistic accomplishmentthen tried to intervene to censor me six days before an election because I wanted to publish reporting and analysis about the evidence that raises serious questions about the conduct of the candidate that all of the editors at that outlet vehemently and enthusiastically support.

The Intercept, onder andere, was created to question the assertions of intelligence agencies, who Greenwald accused ofdisseminating propaganda in a very powerful way.

They are authoritarian, they believe in censorship, and they believe in suppression of information that exposes them in any kind of a critical light.

That letter [signed by Brennan and Clapper] said we have no evidence that Russia is involved in any of this,” verduidelik hy, maar “The Intercept omitted that phrase, simply cited that letter to try to encourage people to ignore this evidence on the grounds that Russia had manufactured it and that the evidence was fabricated, even though there has never been any evidence that that has been true and everything since has disproven it.
