Glenn Greenwald Resigns from The Intercept, Citing “Censorship” of His Story on Hunter Biden

HeadlineOct 30, 2020

In media news, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has resigned from The Intercept after accusing the news outlet of censoring an article he wrote about Joe Biden. Greenwald, who co-founded The Intercept, accused editors of refusing to “publish the article unless I agree to remove all of the sections critical of the candidate they want to win.” Greenwald’s article focused on disputed corruption allegations about Biden’s son Hunter that first appeared in the New York Post. In a statement, The Intercept said, in part, “While he accuses us of political bias, it was he who was attempting to recycle the dubious claims of a political campaign — the Trump campaign — and launder them as journalism.”
