A helpful primer on Government Surveillance and the Press from NYT Public Editor

Margaret Sullivan, the public editor for The New York Times, recently published a column offering four pieces that may help add texture and context to the continuing discussion about press rights and government surveillance.

Alan Rusbridger (The Guardian) along with Bill Keller, David Cay Johnston and Jill Abramson (all of the NYT) each offer perspectives worth considering (or revisiting if you’ve seen them before) as we look toward the Center for Journalism Ethics’ 2014 ethics conference.

Brief introductions as links to the each piece can be found here.
