Glenn Greenwald Will Write for The Guardian
Did you hear? Salon’s star blogger is moving his soapbox to The Guardian, where he says he will reach a new audience while retaining full editorial control over his political writing.
Greenwald, a former civil rights lawyer whose writing topics include national security and digital privacy, will begin at The Guardian on Aug. 20. He had high praise and gratitude for his soon-to-be-former employer:
“[W]hen influential political and media figures vehemently complained about the criticisms I wrote, Salon’s editors unfailingly stood behind my work. Throughout my time here, Salon always evinced an unyielding belief in publishing a wide range of views without fear of offending orthodoxies or establishments, and they continue to do so.”

Glenn Greenwald at Salon:
I will write daily at the U.S. edition of The Guardian, which is based in New York, and will do so exactly the same way as I have here: with full editorial independence and the same type of readership involvement and support upon which I’ve long relied, including a vibrant comment section. In addition to the daily writing, I’ll also write a more traditional once-a-week column there.
