Greenwald Meets Bernstein: From Watergate to Snowden

Glenn Greenwald and Carl Bernstein discuss how NSA surveillance has affected contemporary investigative journalism with  journalist, Fredrik Laurin, of Swedish Radio. Greenwald and Bernstien discuss the U.S. Government’s history of placing journalists, activists and whistleblowers under surveillance. Greenwald discusses how the Snowden revelations have affected the precautions investigative journalists must take  to protect their sources (and themselves), as well as the current practice of prosecuting whistleblowers under the Obama administration.  Bernstein explores how institutional secrecy has increased since Watergate and suggests that there is much less oversight of intelligence abuses than in the past.
