(ConservativeInsider.org) – A journalist’s job is to bring facts to the American public so that citizens can come to their own conclusions about what’s happening in the world. Well, at least that was their job for quite some time. Now, more and more journalists claim they are unable to do so without facing intense bias and even censorship from the Left. Glenn Greenwald just joined that group.
Glenn Greenwald Resigns from The Intercept
Journalist Glenn Greenwald left The Guardian in 2013 and founded The Intercept in order to “ensure that journalists would always have complete journalistic independence and editorial freedom.” But, on Thursday, October 29, Greenwald left his news organization when editors censored his article. He shared the story with Tucker Carlson Thursday night:

Editors refused to publish his article on the Bidens and Burisma until the parts critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden were deleted. While Greenwald was severely disappointed with the situation, he shares that this happens more than we may think:
"But the pathologies, illiberalism, and repressive mentality that led to the bizarre spectacle of my being censored by my own media outlet are ones that are not unique to The Intercept."

The Role of Mainstream Media
In Greenwald’s resignation explanation, he spoke of how he tried to come to an agreement with his editors to publish both sides of the story on recent emails and testimonies involving Biden. However, they would not agree to it.
Greenwald summed the experience up well by stating “modern media outlets do not air dissent; they quash it.”
Greenwald published the draft of his denied article, laying out how the mainstream media covered up Biden’s questionable decisions. The Intercept responded to Greenwald’s resignation and article saying it was full of “distortions and inaccuracies — all of them designed to make him appear as a victim, rather than a grown person throwing a tantrum.”
Let the Public Think for Themselves
Glenn Greenwald wants to provide Americans with facts and a full picture of what’s happening in our society. Mainstream media, like The Intercept, has refused to publish certain stories, especially surrounding the Biden family, rather than show Americans the issues at hand and let them form their own opinions.
It’s critical that we hold our news sites accountable for providing the whole truth.
