Glenn Greenwald Resigns From The Intercept, Claims ‘Suppression’ - of Joe Biden Story

Posted: Oct 29th, 2020 - 4:22 pm

Longtime journalist Glenn Greenwald announced Thursday he is resigning from The Intercept, a publication he helped found, due to perceived censorship of an article regarding corruption allegations surrounding Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Greenwald posted a resignation letter on Twitter, saying editors at the left-leaning publication refused to publish an article of his unless he deleted “all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression.”

The journalist, who helped break news on classified NSA surveillance programs leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden about a decade ago, asserted that The Intercept’s decision and his choice to resign shows there is a trend of “repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.”

Greenwald in recent years said he’s taken umbrage with mainstream outlets quashing alternative viewpoints on certain news stories, saying it’s created political conformity in the press.

“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication,” he wrote in a letter on Thursday.

Before President Donald Trump was elected in 2016, his reporting and commentary was influential among anti-war and civil liberties groups on the left. However, since the last election, he has drawn criticism for his appearances on Fox News.

“All this time, as things worsened, I reasoned that as long as The Intercept remained a place where my own right of journalistic independence was not being infringed, I could live with all of its other flaws,” Greenwald said in conclusion. “But now, not even that minimal but foundational right is being honored for my own journalism, suppressed by an increasingly authoritarian, fear-driven, repressive editorial team in New York bent on imposing their own ideological and partisan preferences on all writers while ensuring that nothing is published at The Intercept that contradicts their own narrow, homogenous ideological and partisan views: exactly what The Intercept, more than any other goal, was created to prevent.”
