An interview with Glenn Greenwald

WithKarla Y. Ganley, Paul Lagunes

Glenn Greenwald is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who co-founded, and writes for, the online news publication The Intercept. Beginning in June 2019, Greenwald and colleagues began publishing reports about hacked messages between Lava Jato prosecutors and former judge Sérgio Moro, which they received from an anonymous source. The messages have raised concerns about close collaboration between judges and prosecutors and point to likely bias against former President Lula during his trial. The interview featured in this chapter probes Glenn Greenwald about the process and consequences of The Intercept’s reporting, as well as his views on the watchdog role of media.
