Less than a week before voters across the US headed to the polls in the 2020 presidential election, famed journalist Glenn Greenwald made a stunning announcement: He was leaving the Intercept, the outlet he helped found in 2013, and striking off on his own at the newsletter website Substack.

In a lengthy post at Substack (10/29/20) explaining his departure, Greenwald wrote that Intercept editors were censoring his work—specifically an article, later published at Substack (10/29/20), that reflected poorly on Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden:

"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."
