Jeremy Scahill Talks About Glenn Greenwald Website

HuffPost reports:
Jeremy Scahill spoke out for the first time on Thursday about the much-hyped website he is launching with fellow journalists Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras.

News of the site, which does not have a name yet, leaked on Tuesday, when BuzzFeed reported that Greenwald was departing the Guardian to help run the new venture. It soon emerged that eBay founder Pierre Omidyar was backing the site, and that Scahill and Poitras would be a part of it. (Omidyar is also the founder of Honolulu Civil Beat, which is partnering with The Huffington Post on its HuffPost Hawaii site.)

Speaking to a German interviewer, Scahill said that he, Greenwald and Poitras had been talking about starting a "serious investigative journalism site" for a while.
