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!

JimWhiteGNV Boy are those folks going to be surprised when they retire and learn that orange money isn't legal tender.

emptywheel @AllThingsHLS Also. If Richard Sherman deflates Brady's balls, is it a violation?

emptywheel @AllThingsHLS Whu?!?! That's as bad as Bass buying Staropramen leading ultimately to Coors owning it.

emptywheel @AllThingsHLS You seem worried. You haven't bet any of Seattle's GOOD beer yet. I'd even be willing to bet MICHIGAN IPA, in honor of U Mich.

emptywheel @AllThingsHLS Nah. Ted Wells already said he won't be done by Sunday. You gotta face Brady, hot dog martini and all.

bmaz RT @robertcaruso: as @bmaz and I have repeatedly warned: the mark of an amateur is worrying about NSA. Worry about DEA. http://t.co/grjPERz
