Greenwald Quits Guardian For Independent News Project

Greenwald quits Guardian for independent news project

Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, who was one of the first journalists to break the NSA surveillance story, is leaving the British newspaper for a “once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity.”

“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,” Greenwald said in a statement after the news was broken by BuzzFeed. No concrete details were specified.

Sources familiar with the matter told Reuters that eBay founder Pierre Omidyar would finance Greenwald’s new venture.
