This is insane. Ebay founder @pierre has been paying Glenn Greenwald up to $518,000 per annum to blog about a mythical "deep state" that has been colluding with Hillary Clinton to undermine America's "elected president" Trump for resisting WW3 and "regime change" in Syria.
Hey @democracynow: how about you ask Greenwald about his Brazilian mansion, his insane salary, and the gender pay gap at @theintercept next time you host him for his rambling conspiracy-theorising?
Note that according to First Look's IRS filings, it appears Greenwald is receiving 3 times the salary his Intercept co-founder Laura Poitras is. Which is outrageous, considering that Greenwald's career was made by the Snowden story, which was Poitras's scoop, not Greenwald's.
For the price of one @GGreenwald, @pierre could have funded an entire media operation, with at least 5 first-rate journalists & substantial investigative funds. This is such a waste of money; but that's minor compared to the damage that its doing to public discourse.
To be clear, I think @pierre's own politics are good. He seems like a well meaning person. But its inexplicable given his own concern with the threat to democracy that Trump and Russia pose why he is enabling a shrill ideologue like Greenwald with an exorbitant annual paycheck.
Greenwald hasn't just acted as a useful idiot for the Kremlin, he has also attacked, dismissed and smeared Syrian dissidents resisting actual fascism.

Also, Greenwald has been receiving money from First Look media through Enzuli Management LLC. What is its link to Enzuli Viagens e Turismo LTDA, one of whose principals is Greenwald (the other his spouse)? Does he pay taxes in the US or in Brazil?
More info on Enzuli Management LLC here:
Some more info on Greenwald's shell company.
If you think I am caricaturing @GGreenwald's views, check the statement he made on @democracynow, where he has an open platform to pollute public discourse with fact-free conspiracy theories.
I think @democracynow is beyond redemption. With everything going on in the world, they once again invited Greenwald to pollute public discourse with his Kremlin apologia. As always, he wasn't asked a single critical question. This is shameful. democracynow.org/2018/7/16/deba…
What is so disgraceful about @democracynow's parade of Kremlin apologists is the complete absence of any sense of journalistic integrity or solidarity. Putin has critical journalists assassinated. Yet we have an American "progressive" broadcaster this invested in his innocence
They could have interviewed Pussy Riot today; they could have interviewed Russian dissidents; critical journalists. But no, they had to have Glenn fucking Greenwald.
