First Look

The new Pierre Omidiyar media project (with Glenn Greenwald) just launched its first effort, its digital magazine, The Intercept.  Leads with Jeremy Scahill and Greenwald on "NSA's Secret Role in U.S. Assassination Program."   Greenwald, Scahill and Laura Poitras also offer a welcome.
Our focus in this very initial stage will be overwhelmingly on the NSA story. We will use all forms of digital media for our reporting. We will publish original source documents on which our reporting is based. We will have reporters in Washington covering reactions to these revelations and the ongoing reform efforts.
We will provide commentary from our journalists, including the return of Glenn Greenwald’s regular column. We will engage with our readers in the comment section. We will host outside experts to write op-eds and contribute news items.
Twitter feed @the_intercept.  Scahill and Greenwald appeared on Democracy Now! this morning.

The WikiLeaks official Twitter feed responded:  "Why has not released full documents for today's story? A bad precedent to set right out of the gate."
