Glenn Greenwald        

Former Constitutional Lawyer, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist, Commentator & Best-Selling Author

Glenn Greenwald is a former constitutional lawyer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and the author of several New York Times bestsellers, including “How Would a Patriot Act”, “With Liberty and Justice for Some”, and “No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State”.

Acclaimed as one of the 25 most influential political commentators by The Atlantic, one of America’s top 10 opinion writers by Newsweek, and one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy, Greenwald shot to international fame with his reporting about the global surveillance revelations leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden. He was a columnist for The Guardian until October 2013 and a co-founding editor of The Intercept, where he stayed until 2020 when he resigned after being prohibited by the editorial staff to publish a damaging story about Joe Biden right before the 2020 election. Greenwald’s move to independent media platforms like Substack and Rumble has helped both platforms gain tremendous traction and awareness on a global level, helping expand the legitimacy and reach of independent journalists around the world. His reporting with The Intercept Brazil about corruption at the highest levels of government in regards to Operation Car Wash helped lead to the release of the wrongfully imprisoned former president of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

He has won numerous awards for his NSA reporting, including the 2013 Polk Award for national security reporting, the top 2013 investigative journalism award from the Online News Association, the Esso Award for Excellence in Reporting (the Brazilian equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize), and the 2013 Pioneer Award from Electronic Frontier Foundation. He also received the first annual I. F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism in 2009 and a 2010 Online Journalism Award for his investigative work on the arrest and detention of Chelsea Manning. In 2013, Greenwald led the Guardian reporting that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for public service.
