The Intercept is an award-winning news organization dedicated to holding the powerful accountable through fearless, adversarial journalism. Its in-depth investigations and unflinching analysis focus on politics, war, surveillance, corruption, the environment, technology, criminal justice, the media, and more. The Intercept gives its journalists the editorial freedom and legal support they need to expose corruption and injustice wherever they find it.
Pierre Omidyar, eBay founder and philanthropist, provided the funding to launch The Intercept in 2014. Today, The Intercept is also fueled by the generosity of its members — a community of committed readers who financially support its mission and goals — and institutional contributors who support The Intercept’s mission.
