The Intercept journalist Glenn Greenwald has resigned from the online publication he co-founded after editors “censored” a story that raises “critical questions about Biden’s conduct.”
The Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter announced his resignation in an open letter Thursday in which he condemned the continuing the “trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press” which he said have “engulfed the media outlet I co-founded” and culminated “in censorship of my own articles.”
In the letter, Greenwald blasted editors for conditioning the publication of his article on removing “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.”
“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,” Greenwald wrote.
