Greenwald gets into new media

Glenn Greenwald, who has made headlines with his Snowden scoops for the Guardian is to join a new media venture funded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

Greenwald wrote in a blog post on Tuesday that he was presented with a "once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity" that he could not pass up. He did not reveal any specifics of the new media venture but said details would be announced soon.
Two sources familiar with the new venture said the financial backer was Omidyar. It was not immediately clear if he was the only backer or if there were other partners.

Omidyar, who is chairman of the board at eBay but has numerous philanthropic, business and political interests, mainly through an investment entity called the Omidyar Network. Omidyar's Twitter account suggests he is very concerned about the government spying programs exposed by Greenwald and Snowden.

Jennifer Lindauer, a spokeswoman for the Guardian, said in a statement posted on Greenwald's site: "We are of course disappointed by Glenn's decision to move on, but can appreciate the attraction of the new role he has been offered. We wish him all the best."
