In a very concerning twist of irony, Glenn Greenwald has resigned from The Intercept after saying he was censored by the editors.
Greenwald is a co-founder of The Intercept, which was created specifically because of censorship surrounding reporting on government spy agencies after the Edward Snowden revelations. The fact that he would now be censored by his own media outlet for daring to report factual yet unfavorable information on presidential candidate Joe Biden is almost unfathomable.
In his own statement, Greenwald said:
The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove 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 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.
Greenwald has since published the article that was censored by The Intercept. You can read it on substack.
Glenn Greenwald is also making sure people are aware of his decision to leave, and the actions that censored his reporting at the Intercept. He did a powerful interview with Tucker Carlson earlier tonight.
It is imperative, with all of the tech censorship we have seen on top of media censorship, that we stand tall for the first amendment. Our right to a free press is constantly muddled by intelligence agency manipulation. That’s why News Analytics is here, and will continue to be here to provide you with the news you can verify.
