Glenn Greenwald reflects on leaving The Intercept over censorship

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has revealed why he quit the news outlet he helped create. He claimed the news outlet now has liberal editors who censored an article he wrote that was critical of Joe Biden.

In a severely critical blog post, Greenwald announced his decision to quit The Intercept, a news outlet he co-founded. In the post, he claims that the outlet is now “completely unrecognizable” as it does not welcome unpopular perspectives and marginalized voices anymore.

Last night, on Tucker Carlson Tonight, he further opened up on his reasons for quitting. He said the purpose of the outlet in the first place was “to ensure that journalists would always have complete journalistic independence and editorial freedom.”

Greenwald is disappointed that an outlet he helped co-create tried to censor him less than a week before the election. The editors, who “vehemently and enthusiastically” support Biden, censored him because he wanted to publish an article that provided an “analysis about the evidence that raises serious questions” about Biden’s credibility.

Greenwald was disappointed that his outlet had fallen for the lie that the allegations against Biden were Russian propaganda.

The outlet would only allow him to publish an article that mentioned the evidence against Biden “snidely and dismissively.” They wouldn’t even let him say that the CIA found no evidence that Russia was involved in the damning allegations against Biden.

According to Greenwald, the CIA and other espionage agencies are in collusion with the mainstream media to support Biden and the Democratic Party, which he warned “is likely to at least take over one branch of government if not all of them in the coming election – and that’s a very alarming position.”

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