Power List 2014: GLENN GREENWALD
By Out.com Editors
Greenwald immediately became a household name (and the bane of the U.S. government) for interviewing whistleblower Edward Snowden and reporting on Snowden’s leaks regarding the National Security Agency. He also captured the attention of eBay’s Pierre Omidyar, who has funded The Intercept, the new digital lightning rod launched by Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill as a platform for investigative and watchdog journalism. He still operates from his home in Brazil, far from prying eyes, but his impact on American politics and culture is only beginning to be felt.
