Edward Snowden on why Glenn Greenwald
Exclusive: Edward Snowden on Why He Partnered With Glenn Greenwald: The Q: GQ
: "Glenn is a rare kind of American writer. He had been passionately writing on constitutional issues, national security, and problematic interpretations of government authority for years, but what made him stand out was his was complete independence from the "access journalism" problem. Journalists and editors who rely on a stream of authorized leaks worry about being blacklisted, so they suspend their critical faculties - by dropping damning context from stories, using euphemisms like "enhanced interrogation techniques" instead of "torture," and so on. Anyone who reads a Greenwald piece can see he that doesn't allow those kinds of political edits, and that's precisely the kind of commitment to truth that I knew these stories would require."
