Glenn Greenwald has unveiled his new project, The Intercept
. I'm sure that it will come under attack throughout the right and
left sides of Blogistan. Some of the "lefties" who will attack the project will be lupine interlopers in sheep couture. Others will be simple reflexive paranoids and pooh-poohers.
But before you pooh any poohs, look at this line-up:
Being able to work with highly accomplished writers like Liliana Segura, Dan Froomkin, Peter Maass and Marcy Wheeler, along with a team of young and aggressive reporters such as Murtaza Hussain, Ryan Gallagher and Ryan Devereaux, is truly emboldening. For our reporting, we have both technical expertise in the form of Micah Lee, and legal expertise from Daniel Novack. As our team grows, the ethos they embody of fearless, independent journalism is what will guide us.
A good list. For me, one name stands out: Marcy Wheeler. If she's on board that ship, I am happy to salute.
