    When it comes to poltitics I believe that Glenn Greenwald and I would agree not more than 20%, however I cannot not recognize that he is a champion of intellectual honesty. He has provided evidence of such honesty a number of times that is sufficient for everybody to know that what he writes is in good faith.

    For the next few days we can expect a strong reaction, mainly the typical character assassination, however this is a story that cannot be totally ignored by the LSM and it will have to be reported.

    Glenn Greenwald On His Resignation From The Intercept
    The Pulitzer winner founded the Intercept to challenge official narratives and protect editorial freedom. When editors abandoned those principles, spiking a controversial story, he was forced to quit
    "In the last few weeks I’ve heard from multiple well-known journalists going through struggles in their newsrooms, with pressure to avoid certain themes in campaign coverage often central to their worries. There are many reporters out there — most of them quite personally hostile to Donald Trump — who are grating under what they perceive as relentless pressure to publish material favorable to the Democratic Party cause. Greenwald’s story mirrors some of the others, but his is more striking than some others on a few levels."
