Our short-term mission is to provide a platform to report on the documents previously provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Although we are still building our infrastructure and larger vision, we are launching now because we believe we have a vital obligation to this ongoing and evolving story, to these documents, and to the public.
Our NSA coverage will be comprehensive, innovative and multi-faceted. We have a team of experienced editors and journalists devoted to the story. We will use all forms of digital media for our reporting. In addition, we will publish primary source documents on which our reporting is based. We will also invite outside experts with area knowledge to contribute to our reporting, and provide a platform for commentary and reader engagement.
Our long-term mission is to produce fearless, adversarial journalism across a wide range of issues. The editorial independence of our journalists will be guaranteed. They will be encouraged to pursue their passions, cultivate a unique voice, and publish stories without regard to whom they might anger or alienate. We believe the prime value of journalism is its power to impose transparency, and thus accountability, on the most powerful governmental and corporate bodies, and our journalists will be provided the full resources and support required to do this.
While our initial focus will be the critical work surrounding the NSA story, we are excited by the opportunity to grow with our readers into the broader and more comprehensive news outlet that the The Intercept will become.

i think goal should be for everyone to be a decent human being and for us to take better care of each other and this seems to be part of a trend of like further commodifying our relationships like monetizing our relationships @
there are 14,000 migrant children under the control of the US.. contract they use to employ legal assistance says they are not allowed to sue US govt for release of these young people or they will lose their funding @
it’s so high-tech..putting tiny little computers into boxes, shipping overnight & yet work conditions are something out of dickens, 120 degrees, no air, 12-14 hr shifts, women lifting heavy boxes.. basically like having miscarriages left/right @astradisastra

@jeremyscahill: We live in an environment where developments happen at lighting speed. I deeply appreciated the historical context & analysis offered by @KeishaBlain&@stschrader1on the roots of the rebellion and of US state and police authoritarianism. New @intercepted
we’re missing a rare global pause.. esp in during this opp we don’t need history/analysis (that could or could not be legit).. what we need is a way out.. a means to reset
Laura Poitras blasts The Intercept for its handling of the Reality Winner situation. “Not only was this a cover-up and betrayal of core values, but the lack of any meaningful accountability promoted a culture of impunity and puts future sources at risk.” https://t.co/5LEoUFC3lO

Deeply embarrassing and tragic story about the Intercept, where nobody has faced any consequences for failing to protect Reality Winner, who was sentenced to 5.25 years, and whose mom is now a corrections officer to learn what her daughter’s life is like https://t.co/PkEn7q6G8g

My Resignation From The Intercept
The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.
