Marcy joins Glenn at First Look

(10 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Investigative journalist ( yew, journalist) and proprietress of emptywheel, Marcy Wheeler announced the she is joining Glenn Greenwald at First Look the new on-line magazine venture by billionaire Pierre Omidyar.

I’ve got some exciting new beginnings – and some continuity – to announce.

As Pierre Omidyar and Eric Bates just announced, I will be joining First Look Media as part of a new magazine that will publish Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, Jeremy Scahill, and others’ work. It’s really exciting to join Glenn and others in their work, and to join the larger First Look effort as it launches.

But that opportunity won’t change much here. I am just working for First Look as a consultant – just doing document analysis, not my own reporting – and just part time. I will continue to do the kind of reporting I always do here – and potentially for other media outlets.

Here are some Tweets from Glenn welcoming Marcy and announcing the launch of First Look early next week.

We congratulate Marcy on new job and look forward to reading her analysis.
