We speak with journalist Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, about how he just announced he is leaving after more than a decade and launched a new investigative journalism outlet Monday called Drop Site News, alongside colleague Ryan Grim. “What Ryan and I are trying to do is build a lean, sustainable, reader-supported news organization that’s going to take big swings at powerful people,” says Scahill. “Our pledge … is to be accountable to the readers, the viewers and the listeners.”
