Greenwald leaving the GuardianSubmitted by radiofriendly on Tue, 10/15/2013 - 17:02
Statement of Glenn Greenwald:
“My partnership with the Guardian has been extremely fruitful and fulfilling: I have high regard for the editors and journalists with whom I worked and am incredibly proud of what we achieved.
“The decision to leave was not an easy one, but I was presented with a once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity that no journalist could possibly decline.
“Because this news leaked before we were prepared to announce it, I’m not yet able to provide any details of this momentous new venture, but it will be unveiled very shortly.”
Rumor: Said to have financial backing from Ebay founder, Pierre Omidyar.
