Washington Post correspondents talked about their contributions to their newspaper’s coverage of National Security Agency’s surveillance programs that collected metadata of Americans' phone records. One of the panelists, Barton Gellman, a former Post staff member, won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting derived from classified documents leaked to him by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Discussion topics included the editorial decisions made by the Washington Post staff, consumer privacy issues, and legislation regarding data collection. Mr. Gellman said that Mr. Snowden had no input into stories he writes or what should be published. He also said that many attempts had been made by others to gain access to the documents given to him.

The title of this Washington Post-sponsored event was “Behind the Headlines: NSA Surveillance and Ongoing Revelations.” close
