Glenn Greenwald Dismantles the Political, Media Establishment Revolving Door in Brutal Twitter Thread

Investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald, a liberal in the classic sense who has never been above criticizing those on his side of the ideological spectrum, blasted the corporate media-political establishment revolving door in an eye-opening Twitter thread posted to the platform last week.

In addition, he also celebrated the ‘pausing’ of the Department of Homeland Security’s “Disinformation Governance Board” for being the latest Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” creation by the Biden regime to push ‘official’ lies to the American people while censoring counter-facts that run afoul of pre-determined narratives.

“It’s a cause of momentary celebration that the Department of Homeland Security was forced by popular anger to “pause” its Disinformation Board and the absurd #Resistance cartoon they hired to run it, but read this to see how angry WPost and @TaylorLorenz are that this happened,” he began while linking to a Washington Post story reporting on the at least temporary demise of the board.

“Investigating and criticizing a Homeland Security official is now ‘harassment’ and bullying, according to the WashPost and @TaylorLorenz. Only ordinary citizens can be investigated — not high-level US Security State operatives. Them’s the rules,” he continued, going on to post examples of his critiques.

Mind you, our founders envisioned a ‘free press’ that would literally hold the powerful in our country to account, regardless of party or ideological slant.

“In sum, a free press exists to unmask and punish private citizens with the wrong politics (‘shoe-lace reporting’), not to investigate and scrutinize the beliefs, conduct and claims of powerful government officials (“harassment” and bullying),” Greenwald continued.

“Without having the US Government’s Department of Homeland Security have a Disinformation Board run by Nina Jankowicz to decree truth and falsity, how will we know what we should believe and not believe? How can a democracy function without DHS telling us what is true and false?” he added.

“Also seems odd that WPost allowed @TaylorLorenz (who, credit where due, broke the story of the DHS ‘pause’) to write an entire article arguing Nina Jankowicz should be off-limits from criticism, without mentioning Jankowicz argued the same about Lorenz,” Greenwald continued, citing a Substack article he wrote as an example.
