First Look Media, the Pierre Omidyar-backed nonprofit news org, announced the first in a series of digital magazines today, as promised in its launch video. The Intercept will cover issues of criminal and civil justice, especially as it relates to the NSA story.

the-intercept-logoOur focus in this very initial stage will be overwhelmingly on the NSA story. We will use all forms of digital media for our reporting. We will publish original source documents on which our reporting is based. We will have reporters in Washington covering reactions to these revelations and the ongoing reform efforts.

We will provide commentary from our journalists, including the return of Glenn Greenwald’s regular column. We will engage with our readers in the comment section. We will host outside experts to write op-eds and contribute news items.

Our longer-term mission is to provide aggressive and independent adversarial journalism across a wide range of issues, from secrecy, criminal and civil justice abuses and civil liberties violations to media conduct, societal inequality and all forms of financial and political corruption. The editorial independence of our journalists will be guaranteed, and they will be encouraged to pursue their journalistic passion, areas of interest, and unique voices.

So far, they have two articles up: the first by Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald on NSA targeting for drone assassinations, the second a series of aerial photographs by Trevor Paglen.
