News from the much-anticipated media venture to be bankrolled by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and piloted by Glenn Greenwald: Dan Froomkin and Liliana Segura are joining a crew that consists of Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras. Froomkin is a veteran of The Post and, more recently, the Huffington Post. At The Post, Froomkin penned his daily White House Watch blog, which rounded up and commented upon the goings-on of the George W. Bush White House. He has also worked since 2004 for the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. In a blog post on the moves, Greenwald calls Froomkin a "veteran journalist who has received national acclaim for his writing about U.S. politics and media coverage. He's been particularly focused on the issue of journalistic accountability - i.e. correcting misinformation, asking critical questions, and holding those in power accountable to their actions."
