Greenwald Fine-Tunes New Media Venture

Look for the feds to be un-pleased


Glenn Greenwald -- the journalist who got the scoop on the NSA's mass surveillance programs courtesy of whistle-blower Edward Snowden -- has been busily assembling the team for the new online publication he's co-creating with $250 million in backing from eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

And a series of tweeted announcements by Greenwald over the last few days gives a glimpse of how the closely watched venture's editorial focus is shaping up.

In an ironic, Snowdenesque twist, news of the venture leaked to BuzzFeed last month, generating a flurry of discussion in media and Internet circles.
