Das Online-Journalismus-Projekt von Ebay-Gründer Pierre Omidyar gründet grade seine ersten Web-Mags, eins der ersten wird von Glenn Greenwald und Laura Poitras betreut und zu Beginn exklusiv über die Snowden Leaks berichten. Ich bin gespannt.
The new site will be led by the experienced and award-winning team of Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill. Its initial focus will be in-depth reporting on the classified documents previously provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
First Look is still in the midst of building our team and refining our larger editorial vision and strategy. Later this year, we will launch more digital magazines, along with a flagship site. But in recent weeks, there has been a dramatic escalation in the threats against journalists reporting on the NSA story. First Look will uphold the rights of journalists everywhere to report on the sensitive and often controversial information that they learn from sources. We are launching the new site as a public service, committed to reporting on one of the most pressing issues of our time in a transparent and responsible manner.
