Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of The Intercept, has stated his intention to resign from the news organization in a letter published on Substack.
In his letter on Substack, Greenwald noted the tipping point as being The Intercept’s decision to censor information in an article he authored covering the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
He has posted the original version of his article on Substack.
Greenwald has joined a growing number of journalists who have noted with dissatisfaction the clear left-wing bias of corporate information outlets, which as of late have collectively become pseudo-arms of the Biden campaign.
While corporate media has long held biases, they have become increasingly shameless in their biases, making little attempt to enshroud them in a veneer of objectivity.
When news outlets refused to cover the Hunter Biden laptop scandal because it doesn’t conform to their personal biases, that’s disingenuous. But when they attempt to make it out to be a hackjob or Russian misinformation, they are lying. In either case, they are not anyone you should want informing you.
Glenn Greenwald has been resisting the systematic censorship of his corporate media outlet for a long time. The Intercept’s attempts to censor the content of its own co-founder is ironic considering that they had previously covered the story of the whistleblower, Edward Snowden.
Now, The Intercept is being rejected by its own co-founder, which should give you an idea of how far they’ve fallen. As they are now, they are indistinguishable from much of the rest of the corporate information media, which claims to “side with their audiences”, but in reality they just pander to themselves.
One who observes nothing can learn nothing.
