On Thursday, co-founder of The Intercept Glenn Greenwald announced that he was resigning from the media outlet that he founded after his own editorial staff censored him for writing a piece that was critical of former Vice President Joe Biden.
“My Resignation From The Intercept,” Greenwald said in a tweet. “The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.”

In his resignation letter, Greenwald broke down the events that led to his resignation.
“The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression,” Greenwald explained.
Greenwald wrote a piece on the bombshell accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden but got censored by his own staff.
“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct,” he explained. “Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication.”
