Glenn Edward Greenwald (born March 6, 1967) is an American lawyer, journalist, columnist and author. As a columnist, Greenwald has written for The Guardian and Salon magazine and writes on civil liberties and national security matters. Greenwald is a critic of the Obama / Biden surveillance state.

Greenwald was a co-founder The Intercept, which he later left claiming, "The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles."[1]

When the Biden junta admitted it was colluding with Big Tech to censor free speech and violate the rights of Americans, Greenwald tweeted, "This is the union of corporate and state power, one of the classic hallmarks of fascism.”[2] In July 2022, Ukrainian dictator Vladimir Zelensky added Greenwald to his blacklist.[3]


Greenwald was criticized by Trevor Louden and Cliff Kincaid in 2013 for defending Julian Assange of Wikileaks and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. Greenwald has spoken at many Socialist conferences.[4]


Greenwald was named by Foreign Policy magazine as being one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2013[5]. For the Snowden revelations The Guardian was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service; Greenwald had been the lead reporter on the story.


Since 2005, Greenwald has lived in Rio de Janeiro with his (same sex) husband, David Miranda, who is now a (Brazilian) Federal Congressman representing Rio state. In 2017, Greenwald and Miranda adopted two sibling children from Maceió[6].
