Editors Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill wrote that the digital magazine will have two missions: in the short term, to publish disclosures provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and "to provide aggressive and independent adversarial journalism across a wide range of issues" in the long term.

The Intercept is the first site launched by First Look Media, the news organization led by Greenwald and backed by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.
