News of Devils
The Media and Edward Snowden
In June 2013, The Guardian and The Washington Post started publishing articles based on documents taken from the National Security Agency by Edward Snowden. It’s the most significant spy story of this century, and perhaps of the last – but for all the revelations regarding the NSA’s surveillance over-reach, could the reporting also have harmed legitimate intelligence activities of the US and its allies? How responsible has the reporting on Snowden been?
In this short but blistering book, Jeremy Duns puts the media coverage of the Snowden affair under the microscope, and reveals a catalogue of inaccuracies, sensationalism and reckless disregard for the principle of reporting in the public interest.
