Left-Wing Journalist Glenn Greenwald Calls Out Bernie Sanders for Deep State Denialism

Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald has been calling out liberal hypocrisy after leaving The Intercept after being censored by the publication.

In Greenwald’s latest column for Substack, he took aim at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for selling out to the Democrat establishment and pretending the deep state does not exist.

Greenwald has enraged many of his former supporters on the Left for calling out the fake news media, the deep state, and appearing on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program.

Big League Politics reported on how Greenwald went off on his former outlet and pulled no punches:

Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald announced on Thursday that he will depart from The Intercept, the publication he co-founded to publish news outside of the fake news media-industrial complex, because the organization has transformed into everything they were founded to oppose.

Greenwald published the rationale behind his departure on Substack, explaining how his writing critical to Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden was censored by the outlet.

“The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression,” he said.

“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication,” Greenwald added.

Greenwald explained that he could not stay with The Intercept since they had violated journalistic ethics to shill for Biden.

“As of now, I will be publishing my journalism here on Substack, where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter Matt Taibbi, have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country,” Greenwald wrote.

“This was not an easy choice: I am voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work by subscribing,” he added.

The hypocrisy on the Left is so overwhelming that it is alienating far-left socialists who have a conscience like Greenwald.
