Glenn Greenwald's New Journalism Venture
While announcing the formation of First Look in October, Omidyar said he is contributing $250 million to pursue independent journalism, and tapped Greenwald to lead editorial operations.
One of today's two articles is about the NSA's role in the targeted assassination program.
The list of authors and staff is impressive -- it includes Marcy Wheeler (Empty Wheel) as Senior Policy Analyst, and Peter Maass, and Dan Froomkin as senior writers. Reporters include Ryan Gallagher, Ryan Devereaux, and Murtaza Hussain.
I hope they are a great success. We need more independent journalism ventures like this.
