Spring 2017 Editorial Fellowship, The Intercept (CLOSED)


The Intercept was founded in 2014 by Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, and Laura Poitras to provide an outlet for fearless, adversarial journalism that holds powerful institutions accountable. The digital magazine, a publication of First Look Media, produces original investigative reporting, analysis, and multimedia content focusing on national security, politics, civil liberties, environment, international affairs, technology, criminal justice, media, and more. The Intercept publishes its journalism on our website and on other platforms, including through social media and distribution partners. 

 The Intercept succeeds in its mission for three key reasons:

  • Independence: We are not governed by corporate interests.
  • Transparency: We are focused on getting to the truth.
  • Support: We provide the freedom and legal support to pursue our journalistic goals.
