PRISM and the First Amendment: A Critical Issue: NewsBreaks

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

On June 5, 2013, The Washington Post and Britain’s The Guardian newspapers began publishing articles that unraveled an Orwellian governmental surveillance program of unrivaled size that allows the U.S. government access to internet-based data and information on Americans and other citizens worldwide. In the nearly 6 weeks since this disclosure, we are not much closer to understanding this secret program and its legitimacy in a democratic society. Instead, public discussions have been waylaid by daily coverage of the fate of Edward Snowden, the source of the PRISM leaks.
