This new political battle does not break down along left v. right lines. This is an information war waged by corporate media to silence any competition or dissent.
The last twenty-hours have been exhilarating. I had no idea what to expect when I decided to leave The Intercept and move my journalism here, but the outpouring of support — both words of encouragement from readers and those subscribing and supporting my work here — has been beyond what I can describe and it is incredibly gratifying and appreciated. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed and reached out.
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 (it is now published here, and the emails with Intercept editors showing the censorship are here). My letter of intent to resign, which I sent this morning to First Look Media’s President Michael Bloom, is published below.
Greenwald said in his resignation announcement that he will continue to publish on the Substack, which he heralded as a place where journalists „have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country.“
On Thursday afternoon, he published on Substack the article and the email exchange he had with his editors about it.
