Glenn Greenwald Resigns From His Own Media Company, The Intercept -- Because The Editors In Chief Are Repudiating The Site's Mission Statement and Imposing Complete Censorship Over Any Mention of the Biden Crime Family Scandal

Instapundit said, in introducing this story, "What is going on in media now is not normal. It is, in fact, a species of coup."


Today I sent my intention to resign from The Intercept, the news outlet I co-founded in 2013 with Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras, as well as from its parent company First Look Media.

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 Bidenís 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.

I had no objection to their disagreement with my views of what this Biden evidence shows: as a last-ditch attempt to avoid being censored, I encouraged them to air their disagreements with me by writing their own articles that critique my perspectives and letting readers decide who is right, the way any confident and healthy media outlet would. But modern media outlets do not air dissent; they quash it. So censorship of my article, rather than engagement with it, was the path these Biden-supporting editors chose.

The censored article will be published on this page shortly. My letter of intent to resign, which I sent this morning to First Look Media's President Michael Bloom, is published below.

As of now, I will be publishing my journalism here on Substack, where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter Matt Taibbi, have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country.

This was not an easy choice: I am voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work by subscribing.

...

But the pathologies, illiberalism, and repressive mentality that led to the bizarre spectacle of my being censored by my own media outlet are ones that are by no means unique to The Intercept. These are the viruses that have contaminated virtually every mainstream center-left political organization, academic institution, and newsroom. I began writing about politics fifteen years ago with the goal of combatting media propaganda and repression, and -- regardless of the risks involved -- simply cannot accept any situation, no matter how secure or lucrative, that forces me to submit my journalism and right of free expression to its suffocating constraints and dogmatic dictates.


...

When the three of us as co-founders made the decision early on that we would not attempt to manage the day-to-day operations of the new outlet, so that we could instead focus on our journalism, we negotiated the right of approval for senior editors and, especially the editor-in-chief. The central responsibility of the person holding that title was to implement, in close consultation with us, the unique journalistic vision and journalistic values on which we founded this new media outlet.

Chief among those values was editorial freedom, the protection of a journalist's right to speak in an honest voice, and the airing rather than suppression of dissent from mainstream orthodoxies and even collegial disagreements with one another. That would be accomplished, above all else, by ensuring that journalists, once they fulfilled the first duty of factual accuracy and journalistic ethics, would be not just permitted but encouraged to express political and ideological views that deviated from mainstream orthodoxy and those of their own editors; to express themselves in their own voice of passion and conviction rather stuffed into the corporatized, contrived tone of artificial objectivity, above-it-all omnipotence; and to be completely free of anyone else's dogmatic beliefs or ideological agenda -- including those of the three co-founders.

The current iteration of The Intercept is completely unrecognizable when compared to that original vision. Rather than offering a venue for airing dissent, marginalized voices and unheard perspectives, it is rapidly becoming just another media outlet with mandated ideological and partisan loyalties, a rigid and narrow range of permitted viewpoints (ranging from establishment liberalism to soft leftism, but always anchored in ultimate support for the Democratic Party), a deep fear of offending hegemonic cultural liberalism and center-left Twitter luminaries, and an overarching need to secure the approval and admiration of the very mainstream media outlets we created The Intercept to oppose, critique and subvert.

As a result, it is a rare event indeed when a radical freelance voice unwelcome in mainstream precincts is published in The Intercept. Outisde reporters or writers with no claim to mainstream acceptability -- exactly the people we set out to amplify -- have almost no chance of being published. It is even rarer for The Intercept to publish content that would not fit very comfortably in at least a dozen or more center-left publications of similar size which pre-dated its founding, from Mother Jones to Vox and even MSNBC.

Courage is required to step out of line, to question and poke at those pieties most sacred in one's own milieu, but fear of alienating the guardians of liberal orthodoxy, especially on Twitter, is the predominant attribute of The Interceptís New-York based editorial leadership team. As a result, The Intercept has all but abandoned its core mission of challenging and poking at, rather than appeasing and comforting, the institutions and guardians most powerful in its cultural and political circles.

...

[T]he brute censorship this week of my article -- about the Hunter Biden materials and Joe Biden's conduct regarding Ukraine and China, as well my critique of the media's rank-closing attempt, in a deeply unholy union with Silicon Valley and the "intelligence community," to suppress its revelations -- eroded the last justification I could cling to for staying. It meant that not only does this media outlet not provide the editorial freedom to other journalists, as I had so hopefully envisioned seven years ago, but now no longer even provides it to me. In the days heading into a presidential election, I am somehow silenced from expressing any views that random editors in New York find disagreeable, and now somehow have to conform my writing and reporting to cater to their partisan desires and eagerness to elect specific candidates.

To say that such censorship is a red line for me, a situation I would never accept no matter the cost, is an understatement. It is astonishing to me, but also a reflection of our current discourse and illiberal media environment, that I have been silenced about Joe Biden by my own media outlet.

I'm pretty sure the plan is win or lose, for all of them to stick their fingers in the ears and shout and scream until enough votes are magically compiled to pull Joe across the finish line if it's close enough. If they don't report Trump won, then did he actually (in their minds).

Some founders have replied that they own the majority of the stock. I point out that they own a majority of the common stock. The investors have the preferred stock, which comes with the voting rights.

Turns out most founders never read the fine print.

105 It seems, on the left, they associate virtue with their politics. When those politics are dependent upon people who start to diverge further and further from the shared idea of what virtue was thought to be, the less lefty politics will seem conducive to those values.

They describe the right as "anti-intellectual", but like anything else, "intellectual" sounds a good thing to call yourself. Most of them are probably not analytical/bright enough to figure out that "intellectual" =/= "right". But they like that description, so they throw on themselves.

But intellect takes rigor. The left has no rigor, or otherwise, they would have remained steadfast about civil liberties and the crimes of power.

I would like somebody to try to convince me that the left is not the *true* anti-intellectual force in American politics. Mainly because they eschew any rigor that brings intellect.

One thing we won't be able to argue...if Trump wins reelection, after the non-stop, insane barrage of negative media coverage and phony scandals pushed at him 24/7/365, it will be a lot easier for me to reach the conclusion that they are simply not believable to a vast swath of Americans.

208 I've done a number of startups. Seeing the founders get out maneuvered and either sidelined or more commonly forced out is not uncommon.

If you're a founder, or an early CEO, you have to accept that you're going to be pushed out sooner or later, and it's actually appropriate that that happen. The personality of a founder or an early CEO is only rarely commensurate with that of someone running an established corporation.

So going in, you have to accept getting pushed out. As long as you get paid, it's probably just as well. A founder/early CEO would be driven crazy by a company with > 200 employees.

312 Just talked to (well, was talked at) by a left wing coworker. He is absolutely convinced they are going to have a huge black anti-Trump turnout because Trump is such a racist racisisty McRacistface, and that they will win FL, GA and NC because of this enormous black turnout. He also said Trump has scared all his voters into not voting -- with logic I didn't quite follow. I don't tell anyone at work my political leanings so I just said "uh huh, that's interesting." If I wasn't reading Dave in Fla's stuff I'd be freaked out, particularly about FL. I decided I didn't want to burst his bubble about the actual ballot returns, it would have dragged a conversation I wanted to get out of far longer. But the left is really confident they are going to win, and our side is cautiously optimistic. I hope we're right.

For example imagine Biden wins the presidency and then decides to go after Google or something like that. Suddenly the videos of Joe molesting kids will be EVERYWHERE. And he'll get prosecuted by SDNY for taking bribes.

Anyone who has the initial, lawful ability to impose upon all subsequent comers, regardless of manner (preferred stock, common stock, officer, director, etc.), the encumbrance that the first person has whatever constitutes permanent control, controls the company. And sometimes putting it in the fine print gets you a very small judgment in your favor when the judge gives you a hollow victory for unclean hands or some such. But yeah.

They're wrong. Very wrong.

Black turnout is going to be down. We can already see that in comparing NC's early voting numbers to 2016. And more of that number that does show up is going to Trump.

Trump has pretty much already won FL and NC. GA was no more than a fantasy along the lines of Ohio.

Tom - Where would put Andrew Sullivan on that scale? He's been all over the map, ideologically, and he's always ended up divorcing himself (or getting kicked out, in the most recent case) from the last ideological home he finds himself in.

I'm wondering where these same voices on the Right are. There is more than enough mendacity on the 'right' - the GOPe for example - for them to be called out - by name.

Even with the major right-leaning broadcasters - including Rush, Levin, and Bongino, they seem to be loath to criticize the squishes on our side. Ryan, Flake and Roberts are now OK to bash, but where is the open condemnation of the McCarthys in our party, who don't do anything but Failure Theater every day they're in DC?

382 The left media cast off its mask in an all-out attempt to destroy Trump. He is an existential threat to their goals. All other politicians can be controlled one way or another or marginalized. Look at how easy it was to buy off Bernie and get the rest of the democrats in the race to drop out to pave the way for Biden. The MSM is willing to make a mockery of itself beyond parody in the service of their corporate master who all have billions at stake in China. Trump's wealth and sideways entry into politics mean he doesn't owe anyone anything. We need to find the next person who can offer that.

But what's happened on Twitter, Facebook and Nashua's Main Street is cutting to the chase: competitive multi-party elections are now just some right-wing thing."

the debates, he highlighted:

If there is a real preference cascade, then Trump is going to take a state that no one thinks he can really win. Not sure which state that would be for me, but if I'm guessing, I'll go VA. Because it is not a red state anymore. MN, CO, NV, NM would not surprise me. VA would. If he takes VA, he is getting close to 400 EV.

I've told founders this.

"You may have founded this outfit, but as soon as investors write a check, they OWN it, and your status as founder is neither here nor there. You're an employee then. For the time being."

Some founders have replied that they own the majority of the stock. I point out that they own a majority of the common stock. The investors have the preferred stock, which comes with the voting rights.

Turns out most founders never read the fine print.

This was the reason Rush started the EIB network. He had been fired from I think, three other radio jobs because he would either not follow the exact approved playlist, or he would begin talking politics between songs. He was able to get enough money together to begin EIB and then syndicate it. I'm sure his father being a lawyer probably helped with making sure he wasn't getting screwed over in contracts for syndication, but it's why he can't be fired. The lefties were unhappy to learn this when they tried their several screaming boycotts of his show. The most they can do is demand sponsor leave, something they were slightly successful in doing over the stupid Sandra Fluck idiocy.

I'm wondering where these same voices on the Right are. There is more than enough mendacity on the 'right' - the GOPe for example - for them to be called out - by name.

Even with the major right-leaning broadcasters - including Rush, Levin, and Bongino, they seem to be loath to criticize the squishes on our side. Ryan, Flake and Roberts are now OK to bash, but where is the open condemnation of the McCarthys in our party, who don't do anything but Failure Theater every day they're in DC?
Posted by: Darrell Harris at October 29, 2020 03:48 PM (6xA3t)

I agree with you, and I think it's all about access. They're terrified that if they criticize someone on our side they're going to be blackballed from having any access to anyone.

And as to Andrew Sullivan - I remember being interested in his writing once upon a time, but then - sorry for being crass, but it's true - I realized that every core issue for him comes down to him listening to his Dick telling what it wants him to do. He can have the most brilliant thoughts in the world, but if his Dick tells him that it wants him to support something else, well that's what he'll do. And after that I just wrote him off as a useless and deeply unserious man, not worth any further attention.

But yes, the CA GOP realized that they could ballot harvest too, and it's pissing off the Democrats in the state.

Posted by: Texas at October 29, 2020 04:07 PM (sX1BW)


My take for a while is that Roberts is desperately trying to keep the court out of contentious political questions. He wants to avoid Roe v Wade type decisions. Wherever possible, he looks for the ruling with a narrow scope, often a focusing on technical aspects. Hence the "it's a tax" decision, which allowed him to sidestep the question of whether or not Obamacare was constitutional. Hence his ruling on DACA, which was that Trump could rescend it, but oh look he didn't quite follow the APA so go back and try again.

His goal is to try and push this crap back to the legislature and executive branches to fix.

I'm not saying that there will be any differences. But if there were, watch the media say that whichever version is more telling of the Buydems is the real version and the other was "altered" and "Russian disinformation".
Posted by: Axeman at October 29, 2020 04:05 PM (Eicbe)


The entire story is crumbling - at this point it all stinks.

Tucker had said it had been opened, and the contents removed. That's how it was flagged to begin with. Now, they've found "the package". (!?) Was a package inside the package?

If it was removed, then it's compromised. If it wasn't open, then just WTF happened? And, we still haven't verified if there's copies. At this point I'll call BS on the whole thing. Just shit can it.

740 I once called Greenwald a hack in the comments section of one of his articles. Since then I've grown to respect him so much that I wrote him an email to apologize and to encourage him in his defiance of, well, actual hacks. I still disagree with him 80% of the time - especially on most matters pertaining to Israel - but he is no hack. He wrote a very kind email back to me, maybe a week ago or so, and I like to think my little morsel of encouragement had something to do with his quitting (unlikely, I know). I plan to subscribe to his substack and would encourage others to do the same.
