The End of Privacy Episode 2 - Sources at Risk

Mass surveillance programs and aggressive government crackdowns on leaks are creating serious risks for sources. A single email or phone call to a reporter could leave a source without a job, or worse, facing criminal prosecution.

Episode 2 looks at the state of source protection around the world and how journalists are adapting to these new challenges. With Stephen Engelberg, editor in chief at ProPublica; Peter Finn national security editor at The Washington Post; Marisa Taylor investigative reporter at McClatchy’s Washington DC bureau; Julie Posetti, researcher at the University of Wollongong; and Garrett Robinson from the Freedom of the Press Foundation. Music by Bobby McElver.
