Glenn's only real journalism since Snowden was the Lavo Jato Brazil corruption stories, which I helped make possible for him. Everything else has been supporting the American fascist movement dressed up as "media criticism"
The Intercept took this person trained to do computer work and now lets him pretend to be a "journalist." He's the one who -- like the FBI/NSA -- is digging through the personal data of ordinary Gab users to dox them. Read his exchange with a real journalist asking him about it: https://t.co/v6j4SRpawk— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) May 13, 2021

On another note, I recently learned that my reporting on Zoom lying about encryption, which triggered an FTC investigation and caused Zoom to add actual E2EE, is now required reading at UC Berkeley https://theintercept.com/2020/03/31/zoom-meeting-encryption/

The technical Snowden reporting that I'm most proud of, the series on XKEYSCORE, has Glenn's name attached but he didn't actually do any work on it. (Neither did Morgan actually...) https://theintercept.com/2015/07/01/nsas-google-worlds-private-communications/

I tried explaining what's going on to my mom and she said, "Why is Glenn Greenwald so grumpy?"
I don't know, Mom. I don't think anyone knows.
