Glenn Greenwald is leaving the Guardian for new media venture
The founder of ebay made Glenn an offer he could not refuse.



Greenwald, who is based in Brazil and was among the first to report information provided by one-time U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden, 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.

Omidyar, a French-born Iranian-American, also founded the Democracy Fund to support "social entrepreneurs working to ensure that our political system is responsive to the public," according to its website.

Omidyar's active Twitter account suggests he is very concerned about the government spying programs exposed by Greenwald and Snowden.

I'd love to know how Omidyar plans to make our government responsive to the public.

Somehow, I am not seeing this as a good thing.

1. Who to believe at this point?
I do not trust anyone now. I know they are spending billions of tax money on manipulating us, the US citizen, since you know, they have already defeated the rest of the world.

2. I believe Snowden because he has released evidence.
I trusted Greenwald, but maybe he has just been neutralized by an offer he couldn't refuse.
