Our gain is their loss.
Salon is losing one of its marquee names, fire-breathing blogger and former constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald, who will move his daily writing to the U.S. edition of the Guardian, where he’ll also write a weekly print column, Politico reports. “I have nothing but the highest regard for Salon and its commitment to independent and provocative journalism,” Greenwald writes today.
He won’t be missed.
Apparently the Guardian doesn’t consider itself far left enough. They’ve even added a couple of other lefty kooks to the stable.
At the Guardian, Greenwald will join a beefed-up roster of brand-name Stateside columnists like Ana Marie Cox and Naomi Wolf.
We apologize in advance to the UK readers. These twits are not indicative of most Americans. As to joking about outsourcing, Greenwald long ago offshored himself to Brazil. Probably has a nice tax shelter down there.
Update: How could we forget what Greenwald is most famous for?
