Greenwald: My Resignation From The Intercept

"The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles."

"our culture is demanding more and more submission to prevailing orthodoxies imposed by self-anointed monopolists of Truth and Righteousness, backed up by armies of online enforcement mobs"

@jz and combined with giving interviews to Tucker Carlson, I'm not sure what is going on there...

@marcel well his interview with Carlson was great, and key to convince some right-nutters they should stand with Assange. very strategic I may say.

The truth is: The Intercept turned into something else, close to what it was created to combat. The Reality Winner debacle is only one of the sources they blew over time. The shutdown of Snowden Archive? excuse me??

And now GG cannot report on Biden because everyone in NYC office is partisan? that's a lot..

@jz I would humbly suggest that if there is ever a time to be partisan for a shitty Democrat, it is now. I would be, if I were a US Citizen.

@marcel they were saying the exact same to get HClinton elected.... Like they can't admit that both can be equally corrupt and dangerous....

And *even though* it was the case, would that justify to censor honest, independant investigative journalist? Is that the values of the "democratic" party?

@jz @marcel

The problem is that I agree with you both.

Maybe things would have been easier if Biden's slogan was more like: "Not Great, but Not Trump".
