First Look Media

Pierre Omidyar and Eric Bates announced Thursday that First Look Media would launch the first of its planned publications next week. Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill will lead the site, whose “initial focus will be in-depth reporting on the classified documents previously provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.”

In addition to the trio above, the publication announced some more hires: Peter Maass, Marcy Wheeler and Ryan Gallagher. Maass profiled Poitras for The New York Times Magazine last summer.

Greenwald will be on CNN this Sunday, Brian Stelter says:
