The Obama Administration and the Press – Leak investigations and surveillance in post-9/11 America, October 10, 2013

“U.S. President Barack Obama came into office pledging open government, but he has fallen short of his promise. Journalists and transparency advocates say the White House curbs routine disclosure of information and deploys its own media to evade scrutiny by the press. Aggressive prosecution of leakers of classified information and broad electronic surveillance programs deter government sources from speaking to journalists.” A The Committee to Protect Journalists special report by Leonard Downie Jr. with reporting by Sara Rafsky.
