Glenn Greenwald Life

Glenn Edward Greenwald (born March 6, 1967) is an American journalist and writer.

He is best known for a series of studies from The Guardian newspaper in June 2013 focusing on the United States and British intelligence services, as well as restricted information released by Edward Snowden.

For those stories, Greenwald and the team with whom he worked received both a George Polk Award and a Pulitzer Prize.

He has written several best-selling books, including No Place to Hide. Greenwald was one of the most influential opinion columnists in the United States before the Snowden file leaks.

He began blogging on national security topics for ten years before joining Salon in 2007 and then The Guardian in 2012.

He now writes for (and has co-edited) The Intercept, which he coauthored in 2013 with Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill.

Early life and education

Greenwald was born in New York City to Arlene and Daniel Greenwald. When he was a boy, Greenwald's family moved to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida; he and his parents separated when he was six years old. His parents, who are Jewish, and his grandparents did attempt to introduce him to Judaism, but he didn't have a bar mitzvah and has said his "moral precepts aren't influenced in any way by religious belief." Greenwald attended Nova Middle School and Nova High School in Davie, Florida.

Greenwald, a high school classmate, decided to run for an at-large seat in the 1985 elections after being inspired by his grandfather's time on the then-Lauderdale Lakes City Council. He was dissatisfied, finishing in fourth place in the campaign with only 7% of the total vote at the time. Greenwald ran for the at-large seat on the council in 1991, finishing in third place but losing again with less than half of his fellow opposition's total votes. Greenwald stopped running for political office and instead concentrated on law school after two setbacks during his two bids for the city council.

He earned a BA in philosophy and a JD from New York University School of Law in 1994.

Personal life

Greenwald spent his childhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he met David Miranda, a then 19-year-old who had spent his childhood in the Jacarezinho Favela. The two couples decided to move in together the day after they met; the two would marry later this year. Miranda now serves as a congressman for the left-wing PSOL group. Both of them live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Greenwald and Miranda reported in 2017 that they had obtained legal guardianship of two brothers, who are from Maceió, a city in Northeastern Brazil. In Brazil, the two boys were officially adopted.

Greenwald and Miranda were close personal friends of Brazilian human rights activist and politician Marielle Franco, who is known for criticizing police tactics and corruption, who died after being fatally wounded by unknown assassination attempts. According to a New York Times profile, Greenwald's reporting on high-level Bolsonaro executives and Miranda's outspoken opposition in Congress converted them into the primary targets of Bolsonaro's administration.

Although Greenwald does not subscribe to any organized faith, he has said he believes in "the spiritual and mystical area of the world" and that yoga is "like a bridge into it," as well as a window into it." Greenwald has written about the New Atheist movement, in particular, Sam Harris and other Islamist critics.


Glenn Greenwald Career


Greenwald worked in Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz's litigation department from 1994 to 1995. In 1996, he co-founded Greenwald Christoph & Holland, (later renamed Greenwald Christoph & Holland), where he litigated cases concerning issues of federal constitutional law and civil rights. He served pro bono for a long time, and his cases included representing white supremacist Matthew Hale in Illinois, who Greenwald believed was wrongly arrested, as well as the neo-nazi National Alliance.

Greenwald's involvement in First Amendment speech cases told Rolling Stone magazine in 2013. "To me, it's a noble attribute to be so committed to a belief that you use it not when it benefits your position, not when it shields people you love, but when it protects and protects people that you loave."

"I decided to wind down my practice in 2005 because I could," Greenwald says, after ten years as a litigator full time and wanted to do other things that seemed more interesting and could have more impact, including political writing."

He began his blog Unclaimed Territory in October 2005, focusing on the Plame investigation, the CIA leak grand jury probe, the federal indictment of Scooter Libby, and the NSA warrantless surveillance controversy (2001–07) controversy. The blog received the 2005 Koufax Award for its "Best New Blog" in April 2006. Greenwald, according to Sean Wilentz of New Statesman, "I took pride in attacking Republicans and Democrats alike."

Greenwald became a contributing writer on the Salon website in February 2007, and the new column and blog superseded Unclaimed Territory, although Salon included hyperlinks to it in Greenwald's dedicated biographical section.

The probe into the 2001 anthrax attacks and the nomination of former CIA official John O. Brennan for the posts of either Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (D/CIA) or the next Director of National Intelligence (DNI) following Barack Obama's election was one of the regular topics in his Salon columns. After the opposition centered in liberal blogs and led by Greenwald, Brennan dropped his name from consideration for the post.

Greenwald compared U.S. Army Private Chelsea Manning to "a national hero similar to Daniel Ellsberg" in a 2010 article for Salon. Greenwald's essay for The Raw Story, published in 2011, critiqued Manning's prison conditions after her detention by military authorities.

Greenwald was dubbed "the American left's most cynical commentator" by Rachel Maddow during his time as a columnist for Salon.

Greenwald was announced in July 2012 that he would be contributing to both a weekly column and a daily newspaper. Greenwald argued on Salon that the move gave him "the opportunity to reach a new audience, to expand my readership, and to be rejuvenated by a new environment."

Greenwald reported on June 5, 2013, Greenwald referred to a top-secret United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order that mandated Verizon to provide the National Security Agency with phone records for all calls between the United States and abroad, as well as all domestic calls.

Greenwald and The Guardian announced on October 15, 2013 that he would leave the paper to pursue a "once-in-a-career" journalistic dream that no journalist could possibly refuse."

Pierre Omidyar, a founder of eBay, gave The Intercept financial assistance. According to journalist Jay Rosen, Omidyar's "rising worry about press freedoms in the United States and around the world." Greenwald and his coworkers, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill, were first working on building a web platform to promote independent journalism when they were approached by Omidyar, who was trying to establish his own media company. On February 10, 2014, First Look Media, a news group, launched The Intercept, its first online publication. Greenwald began as editor, alongside Poitras and Scahill. The corporation is registered as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable charity.

During Hillary Clinton's campaign, the Intercept was in touch with Guccifer 2.0, who recited some of Hillary Clinton's information, which was discovered via a data leak, to Greenwald. "The Intercept was both aware that Guccifer 2.0 was attributed to Russian intelligence agencies, and that there is ample public evidence to back this assertion."

He was already serving as an Intercept columnist with no influence on the site's news coverage by 2019. Greenwald resigned from The Intercept on October 29, 2020, citing political censorship and contractual infringements as reasons for his decision not to publish the article in any other publication. Greenwald's allegations and allegations of censorship were debuffed by Betsy Reed, the editor-in-chief, who accused him of presenting unverified claims by the Trump campaign as journalistic. Greenwald said he'd start releasing his work on Substack, and that he was "exploring the possibility of creating a new media portal." Greenwald resigned from The Intercept and shared his essay about Biden and his Interceptive friends on his Substack page.

Greenwald's rivalry with former coworkers was still ongoing as of mid-2021, according to The Daily Beast and The Washington Post.

Greenwald has "repositioned himself as a thum-throwing media critic" since the Snowden revelations, according to Simon van Zuylen-Wood's column in New York magazine in early 2018. Greenwald has appeared on Fox News, especially Tucker Carlson Tonight. In an interview with Glenn Beck, Greenwald mentioned the regularity of his appearances on Tucker Carlson's show.

Greenwald, according to the Daily Beast's review of transcripts, appeared on Fox News 72 times since December 2017, including 40 times on Carlson's show and 14 times with host Laura Ingraham.

How Would a Patriot Act, Greenwald's first book. Running Assets published this article in 2006. Defending American Values From a President Run Amok was released by Working Assets in 2006. It was a New York Times bestseller and ranked No. 1 in the New York Times and ranked No. 1. Both before and after its launch (due to orders based on 'UT' readers and other bloggers' attention) and for several days after its debut, ending at No. 61 in first week. 293.

George W. Bush's presidency was analyzed in A Tragic Legacy, his second book. Crown (a Random House affiliate) reprinted in a paperback edition by Three Rivers Press on June 26, 2007, and a New York Times bestseller was also published in hardback by the end of 2008. Toppling the Great American Hypocrites The Big Myths of Republican Politics was first published by Random House in April 2008. In October 2011 and May 2014, Metropolitan Books published his fourth and fifth books, With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Can Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful and Protect the Powerful, and Where to Hide: In October 2011, Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State, respectively. The latter book appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list for six weeks and was named as one of the ten Best Non-Fiction Books of 2014 by The Christian Science Monitor.

In Brazil, Greenwald wrote the book Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice as a follow-up to No Place to Hide. In April 2021, Haymarket Books published it. It refers to leaked telephone calls, audio, and text messages related to Operation Car Wash and Jair Bolsonaro's government's retaliation.

Following a show in Berlin, the musician reignited controversy over the summer by wearing a 'Nazi-style' coat to his concerts, prompting the artist to be investigated by German police. The aging rocker said there was something "very fishy" about Israel's not knowing Hamas were invading despite the fact that they were not aware of the invasion. Glenn Greenwald of Rumble podcast System Updates said there was "something very fishy" about it. Waters - who said he was "an opponent of the entire Zionist project" went on to question Hamas' atrocities, said the terrorist group was "absolutely morally bound to refuse" in protest.

David Miranda, Glenn Greenwald's politician, died at the age of 37, May 9, 2023
Greenwald, 56, paid a loving tribute to Miranda's death on Tuesday morning, alongside photographs of the pair together with their two sons. Miranda, a Brazilian congressman who grew up in Rio's slums, was remembered as a "new man with an extraordinary course" by Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who posted his condolences to Greenwald on Twitter. 'It's with the most profound sadness that I inform the passing away of my husband, @DavidMirandaRio, that I write.' He would have turned 38 on Monday. His death occurred early this morning after a 9-month fight in ICU. He died in absolute tranquility, surrounded by our children, relatives, and acquaintances.
