Interesting. Was listening to a fairly controversial interview with the founders a while ago, and they thought that the entire First Look Media/Intercept thing was essentially a gatekeeping operation launched by Pierre Omidyar to keep the Snowden documents from spreading too much. To keep them in-house and build up a number of celebrity journalists.

Maybe there is in fact some truth to it. 🤔
