Classified information and JournalismClassified information disclosed to journalists by whistleblowers has become a primary source for investigative adversarial journalism that exposes the wrongdoings and crimes of the governments worldwide. However, recently journalists who used such information in their work have been harassed and even prosecuted by government officials who insist that using stolen classified information is illegal. Many journalists have been accused of illegal activity since then. What will happen now when the leaked classified information has already shed a light on so many wrongdoings and crimes, and when journalistic work based on such information is valued by a large audience that wants to be informed about issues like mass surveillance, covert wars overseas and many more? This month's newsletter attempts to explore these questions through some articles shared here.
