On the afternoon of October 29th, Glenn Greenwald, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist best known for his illuminating coverage of National Security Agency (NSA) policies based on documents provided by Edward Snowden, resigned from The Intercept, the publication he co-founded in 2013. He released a statement of resignation via Substack, which has become the platform of choice for a number of prominent journalists who have felt no longer able to speak their minds at the name-brand publications where they once worked. A few of Substack’s most notable recent refugees include Matt Taibbi, who previously wrote primarily at Rolling Stone, as well as Andrew Sullivan, who departed New York magazine in June of this year.
