Glenn Greenwald is leaving the Guardian and moving to a new media company created by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. Laura Poitras, who put Snowden and Greenwald together, and national security reporter Jeremy Scahill, will also reportedly join the new company.
Bart Gellman, the other journalist who’s written regularly about the Snowden leaks, will not be joining the new publication. Greenwald is running the politics part of the new site. Other parts will include sports, entertainment and general news.
