After Snowden: The Role Of The Press In National Security

Edward Snowden

In 2013, former National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden released classified documents. His action prompted outrage; supporters hailed him as a hero while opponents called him a traitor and a criminal. A new book, After Snowden: Privacy, Secrecy and Security in the Information Age, (St. Martin’s Press/2015) examines the national security landscape in the two years since Snowden’s actions.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Hodding Carter, author of a chapter entitled “The Press” about the media’s role in the post-Snowden era. An excerpt was posted on Salon.com.

Carter is the former Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs and a professor of leadership and public policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
