Remember how, a while back, it was revealed that the British government forced The Guardian’s top editors to destroy a bunch of computers in an effort to get rid of top-secret documents acquired from Edward Snowden? Here’s video of them doing just that.

Guardian editor says paper’s coverage barely scratched the surface of Snowden leaks

  • one percent of the materials leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden have been published by The Guardian, according to editor Alan Rusbridger. Rusbridger spoke before a Parliamentary committee on Tuesday, where he said the UK would not bully the paper into ending its coverage, but also acknowledged that The Guardian doesn’t plan to publish much more of the content it received from the former NSA contractor. source

I’m gratified by my 14-month partnership with the Guardian and am particularly proud of what we achieved together over the last five months. Reporting the NSA story has never been easy, but it’s always been invigorating and fulfilling. It’s exactly why one goes into journalism and, in my view, is what journalism at its crux is about. That doesn’t mean that the journalists and editors who have worked on this story have instantly agreed on every last choice we faced, but it does mean that, on the whole, I leave with high regard for the courage and integrity of the people with whom I’ve worked and pride in the way we’ve reported this story.
Glenn Greenwald says goodbye to The Guardian Thursday. Having been there for only 14 months, he heads over to a new endeavor with a pre-launch blog here. I, myself, am very excited to see how this will all end up. Also like how Greenwald ended his column with a call to action, “I hope everyone who believes in basic press freedoms will defend those journalistic outlets when they are under attack – all of them – regardless of how much one likes or does not like them.”

My partnership with The Guardian has been extremely fruitful and fulfilling: I have high regard for the editors and journalists with whom I worked and am incredibly proud of what we achieved. The decision to leave was not an easy one, but I was presented with a once-in-a-career dream journalistic opportunity that no journalist could possibly decline.
Glenn Greenwald • Explaining why, while still at the zenith of his journalistic career post-Edward Snowden, he’s deciding to leave The Guardian to launch his own new media outlet, reportedly with the substantial backing of a philanthropist. Greenwald indicated that it’ll be a more general venture than his particular field of expertise might suggest: “it’s going to have sports and entertainment and features. I’m working on the whole thing but the political journalism unit is my focus.” source

The attacks against the Guardian by both the government and representatives of the British press are unacceptable. What the Guardian is doing is both brave and important for our democracies. We fully support the paper.
Dagens Nyheter (Sweden) editor-in-chief Peter Wolodarski says on The Guardian’s work in recent events, along with other journalists and editors of international papers.

The Duchess of Cambridge—a.k.a. Kate Middleton—is currently in labor. But if you’re like us, you’re not interested in that news so much. Fortunately, The Guardian has thought of that. Hit that button above to hide the incoming baby news. The WaPo has more on how they did it.
