Greenwald was named by The Atlantic as one of the 25 most influential political commentators in the nation, and by Newsweek as one of the nation's top 10 opinion writers. He is the recipient of the first annual I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism, and is the winner of the 2010 Online Journalism Association Award for his investigative work on the arrest and oppressive detention of Bradley Manning. He was a finailst for the 2011 National Magazine Awards for online political writing.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow called Greenwald "the American Left’s most fearless political commentator". Filmmaker Michael Moore said: "The first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning is go to Glenn Greenwald’s blog to see what he said. He is truly one of our greatest writers right now." And Bill Moyers described him as "the most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years."
