Sorry if this is a dumb question but what is the role of The Intercept (the org) in fucking over the whistleblowers? Is it suggested that higher-ups in the org leak their sources to the authorities?

Also how many times I have seen people claim “I can criticise the government in the USA but can’t in China.”

Yep, that is the case. The first time this happened, was with Reality Winner in 2017, she got caught almost immediately after leaking to the intercept.

Within the past few years, their leadership / editors have become an arm of the democrats, which didn’t use to be the case, as they did good reporting during the Obama era. But now it seems they’re handing over their sources to the government.

An earlier source, Reality Winner, printed secret documents. It turns out that each printer prints a pattern of faint yellow dots on the side of a page that can be used to identify it. The Intercept put the original printouts on the web, that’s how they got her.

So, incompetence, basically.

I didn’t know printers did that. That’s kind of unsettling.
