Conservative Glenn Greenwald, who founded The Intercept, has resigned from his own publication by liberal editors who demanded he censored any articles critical of Democrat Nominee Joe Biden.
He announced his resignation on Thursday morning in a bombshell tweet.
In a brutal post, Greenwald claimed the publication had become “completely unrecognizable.”
He expanded later on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Greenwald told Tucker Carlson “the reason [the Intercept] was created was to ensure that journalists would always have complete journalistic independence and editorial freedom, never have to pull punches journalistically or pay homage to pieties because of the ideological preferences of editors or of anyone else.”
“That is what makes it so amazing, that the very outlet that I co-created — that was built on my reputation, my credibility, my journalistic accomplishment — then tried to intervene to censor me six days before an election because I wanted to publish reporting and analysis about the evidence that raises serious questions about the conduct of the candidate that all of the editors at that outlet vehemently and enthusiastically support,” he continued.
This is no surprise to conservatives who have been outraged by the fake news for several years now. It’s even less shocking following the aggressive attempt to cover-up Joe and Hunter Biden’s shady business deals with foreign adversaries.
Greenwald thought he had created a safe space for the truth. He told Tucker that he felt “embarrassed and angered” that his outlet could not live up to his vision.
But it’s not his fault.
In the era of Trump Derangement Syndrome, few spaces can survive the left-wing censorship era.
