[good reads] the intercept

May 28, 2017

Usually I try to post about books here, but it’s been a busy couple of weeks so I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t been reading that many books aside from the view that I’ve been sharing with my students in class.

There is an alternative news website that I’ve been trying to read regularly though and I thought I’d share that with you: The Intercept. The Intercept was founded generally to as a place for people to find more in-depth information since news organizations today seem to not only report just the top layer of deep stories, but also feed into the crazy. According to them, “The Intercept is dedicated to producing fearless, adversarial journalism. We believe journalism should bring transparency and accountability to powerful governmental and corporate institutions, and our journalists have the editorial freedom and legal support to pursue this mission.” It’s going back to the concept that journalists are supposed to be whistle-blowers to keep the government in check! And, of course, if you have heard of Glenn Greenwald, you’ll know that he’s quite the respected newsman and this is one of his projects.
