Glenn Greenwald quits The Intercept over ‘censorship’ of Hunter Biden article

Prominent journalist Glenn Greenwald on Thursday resigned from The Intercept, a news organization he co-founded in 2014 after editors sought to “censor” an article he wrote about The Post’s expose on documents retrieved from a Hunter Biden hard drive.

Greenwald is best known for his 2013 reporting on leaked mass-surveillance documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. His work for The Guardian won the Pulitzer Prize.

“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,” Greenwald wrote in a blog post.

“[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.”

Greenwald lives in Brazil with his husband David Miranda, who is a socialist congressman.
