Abby Martin of RT’s “Breaking the Set” had me on to discuss the talking points sheet the NSA leadership sent for employees to share with family and close friends during Thanksgiving. She also asked me about NSA’s porn-spying and whether it seems like the country has lost interest in the disclosures.
The story I published with the NSA’s talking points for the holiday season did really well yesterday. It was picked up by The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Verge, Gizmodo, RT.com, and Techdirt. Also, Marcy Wheeler did this great post on NSA not denying that it steals industry secrets but claiming they just don’t do it for competitive advantage.
Thanks to all the media outlets that credited Firedoglake and covered the talking points and also many thanks to those who read it and shared it widely yesterday.
