PUBLIC TALK: THE MEDIA IN THE AGE OF MASS SURVEILLANCE
Venue: The Center for Creative Collaboration, 16 Acton Street, London, WC1X 9NG
Hosted by the Coalition for Media Pluralism
We are excited to host a discussion of the role of the media in the age of mass surveillance next Wednesday 13 August. Following the revelations through documents leaked by Edward Snowden in June 2013 of the unprecedented scale and scope of US and UK government domestic and foreign surveillance, and the subsequent moves by the UK government against the Guardian and those associated with the publication and reporting of the leaks, we will discuss the implications for the effective functioning of a free press and the ability of the media to hold those in power to account.
