Glenn Greenwald’s AutoBiography, Uncensored

Glenn complains a lot about what he calls censorship. Yet, Glenn’s own life history, as told through carefully controlled interviews with friendly unquestioning journalists, is full of elaborate cover-ups, disguising or ommitting the most extraordinary chapters.
The main theme of this site is a litt le uncensoring: What is he hiding and why?

To start, take a look at His Name is Rio - written under Glenn’s own byline in 2006.
It took quite some finding on the Internet Archive.
However we already knew that the agencies promoted there (and reproduced here) Rio Gay Guides and Rio Male Escorts were owned and operated by Glenn and David Miranda, his husband.

Other Sites About Glenn

Boys From Brazil Glenn has inspired a remarkable number of web pages - even entire sites - specifically about him. Some of the earliest were about Glenn’s famous sock-puppets, in 2006. Others cover material from Edward Snowden, to porn production, to his whole history of lies.
Few are praiseworthy and quite have an expressly stated goal of warning abouut Glenn, such as this from 2013:

It is inexplicable that so few have ever called him out by name for such deplorable, unethical behavior. So I am doing it as plainly as I possibly can. Glenn Greenwald is a serial liar. He is a bully. And he has no business being taken seriously ever again.

We have collected many of these antif-fan pages here.

First US-Published Articles about Greenwald’s porn empire

In 2013 NY Daily News, apparently in response to a tip-off, uncovered an acrimonious court case from 2002-4.
Master Notions, which operated HairyStudsVideo and Studmall, was a joint enterprise of Glenn Greenwald and Jason Buchtel.

One of the very few updates since then we’ve put here too.

Before delving further into Glenn’s involvement with Studmall, and the manifest lie that he was the legal coffee boy who left the porn business behind in 2004 before leaving for Brazil, note one detail that leads to a whole lot more.

Glenn’s email address is quoted by NY Daily News (from court depositions) as This can also be found in the domain records of Studmall alongside the mailing address for Glenn’s old law firm.
DomEscort31NYC There’s one other place we have found this email address. It belongs to an account called DomEscort31NYC who invites interested users to email him. The offer is pretty extreme even for the male4male escort review chat site, where it was posted.

With a bit more work, other accounts of Glenn’s can be found on that site, including HairyDomBraz27 and his political alt from 2003-5, the Iraq War loving Doug69.

It appears Glenn tried to get ahead of the NY Daily News revelations by publishing his account, which he has repeated with multiple variations in profiles and interviews since. He admitted to co-ownwership of Hairy Studs Video and Studmall but stated that his involvement in the porn industry ended in 2004, 2-3 years after it started. See Key Excerpts and links for some of these.

But is Glenn’s claim true?

If it is, then Glenn’s Blue Period would be exactly 100 years after Picasso’s.

Had New York Daily News, Buzzfeed, The Guardian and others not been too shy to check, they might have quickly realized there is overwhelming evidence against Glenn’s version of events.

Documentary evidence

DNS and corporate records, and other key documents — including video box covers themselves — are being gradually added to this site.

Brazilian Reporting

David Articles in the Brazilian press in August 2019, first alleged that said Glenn had produced porn in Brazil, with David, and for a considerable while.
They were based on interviews and did not seem to have any actual post-2004 records or movie titles. We do not know with whom and we cannot verify all the details. Yet some of the facts they stated about dates, locations and people involved — not previously published — we can verify by other means. None of these articles is a hit piece that someone casually made up.

A Brazilian site devoted to this subject,, was created in 2019. The site is no longer active but most of the articles are preserved on the Internet Archive.

We have included a number of translations as well as links to the originals, which can be accessed from the sidebar those pages.

HX articles: Glenn’s porn tips

HX was the leading gay listings magazine in New York City for most of the 90s and 00s.

In February 2005, the very same week that Glenn and David “met on the beach” in Rio, back in NYC, HX published an article Cheap Trixxx under the by-line of an unknown writer and “resting” lawyer, Glenn Greenwald.
How did you ever manage without its handy advice?

DON’T forget about the sound. If you’re shooting in New York, close your windows!
Nothing is worse than the sound of hot sex being drowned out by sirens, passing buses and couples fighting next door.

UPDATED The article was simultaneously promoted on the website. Read it here.

A couple of years earlier, HX published Razor Burned. promoting Hairy Studs Video, by Andrew Sullivan.
How did Glenn get Andrew Sullivan, who was much more famous than Glenn at the time, to write this promotional piece for his porn company?

The Canadian Government Position

Paul Calandra, likely informed by Canadian Intelligence, described him as a Porn Spy.

Previously he had described Glenn as a former porn industry executive
These statements, made in late 2013, suggested a much greater involvement in the industry than Glenn had admitted to New York Daily News. But they did not give details.

Nearly Eight Years

One person we can check with is Jake Jaxson, his former business partner. He doesn’t say anything about two years. And the documents support Jason.

Jake Jaxson’s real name is Jason Buchtel, but we just call him Jason Sketchy.

Other Lies

Glenn condemned the denial of law license to a leading American Neo-Nazi as an “egregious constiutional abuse” in this court filing.. Although he claims now to have been a “First Amendment” lawyer, his failed attempt to claim a constitutional right to a law license may have been his only such case.

NEW We have collected some details of his cases, including two representing HX Magazine.
