Announcement

This is just a quick announcement that I have ended my affiliation with First Look/The Intercept. My departure was voluntary and amicable.

To anticipate questions some may ask, my departure from The Intercept doesn’t relate to anything I wrote or didn’t write about Ukraine. It did not relate to the downtime The Intercept just took (and seems to be coming out of). The reasons for my departure predate both of those things, to January.

I’ll have more to say–not about The Intercept, per se, but about things I’ve learned about my own journalism over the last 7 months, as the Edward Snowden story played out and the Intercept discussed hiring me–at some later point, after some reflection.

Things here will remain the same.

We will, however, be doing a fundraising campaign next week (or you can beat the rush by donating today!). Until such time as a billionaire wants to support the work we do here, we will rely on readers to pay the bills.

Thanks, as always, for making all that possible!

emptywheel @adambonin Yeah. I bet @ddayen could invent some competition that would distinguish Spelling wasp from fruit fly.

emptywheel @adambonin I'd say a POTUS debate but they'd look good by comparison, I guess.

emptywheel @adambonin Why not make them face off in skills neither is good at, like all good reality shows?

emptywheel How can something as cutthroat as the Spelling Bee end in a tie? It's not right.

bmaz Status of GOP linchpins of BS well known 10-15 years ago: 1) Sadaam/Iraq had no threatening WMD's 2) Hastert was doing more than "wrasslin"

bmaz Guess it's no surprise from a GOP party that cravenly puts up malignant actors such as Chris Christie + Joe Arpaio as having "family values"

bmaz @downwithtyranny @_ShannonINC Although, as true as that is, the sparseness of the original is also pretty endearing in a different way.
