AP Surveillance: ‘Govts taking our rights away, not Al-Qaeda’

May 15, 2013

Up to a hundred reporters and editors at the Associated Press have been targeted, in a massive US government surveillance operation against the news service.

AP is calling the monitoring network – created by the Justice Department itself – unprecedented in size and scope, and a gross violation of privacy.

One consequence of this surveillance scandal is that whistleblowers will now think twice, before calling a news desk – that’s according to investigative journalist and historian, Tony Gosling.
