Europe Must Stand Up to American Cyber-Snooping - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Is Barack Obama a friend? Revelations about his government's vast spying program call that assumption into doubt. The European Union must protect the Continent from America's reach for omnipotence.

Can we really trust judges to protect reporters' confidential sources? | Media | The Guardian
Journalists won’t even be safe to talk email whistleblowers from a coffee shop [...] In stressing that the powers would not be used for mass surveillance, May said the onus would be on the home office to show necessity and proportionality. And who would decide whether that was justified? Judicial commissioners, she said. They would operate a “double-lock” authorisation process on intercept and bulk interception warrants in order to prevent intrusive snooping. [ old boys club with career interests? titles, pensions? ] But will this judicial oversight provide enough protection? That’s the key worry for journalists who now know that there is nowhere for them to conceal their communications with confidential sources. [...] We already know from instances of the police use of the regulation of investigatory powers act (Ripa) //&! Police spying row officers decline Holyrood invitation - http://bbc.in/1RSXQxl

What Clinton Got Wrong About Snowden
First, Snowden is a whistleblower, not a leaker. Whistleblowing is the act of bringing to light evidence of waste, fraud, abuse, law-breaking, or dangers to public health or safety. Snowden did exactly that when he divulged proof that the National Security Agency was illegally snooping on all of us.

Why Readers Don’t Get the True Story — The Information
The costs of off-the-record reporting are increasingly greater than the benefits, as the culture of talking without attribution gives companies too much control. // lots of companies use this practice / PR ... for what? have good relationships, tend the relationships with reporters/journalists? Give them a sense of being in THEIR circle? From outsiders view it looks like 'patting on the head like a child?' // Sarah Lacy once talks about it that there must be more stuff than Techopus. But the cheerleaders within the bubble of success, fame, notoriety and money ... WILL not look, dig, investigate ... because they are hired as cheerleaders (pageviews business model)

Today's Uncertain Future Calls For Observation and Patience, Not Boldness and Strategy | BillMoyers.com
Not one of the signature foreign policy initiatives conceived in Obama’s first term has borne fruit. When it came to making a fresh start with the Islamic world, responsibly ending the “dumb” war in Iraq (while winning the “necessary” one in Afghanistan), “resetting” US-Russian relations, and “pivoting” toward Asia, mark your scorecard zero for four. There’s no doubt that when Kerry arrived at the State Department he brought with him some much-needed energy. That he is giving it his all — the department’s website reports that the secretary has already clocked over 682,000 miles of travel — is doubtless true as well. The problem is the absence of results. Remember when his signature initiative was going to be an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal? Sadly, that quixotic plan, too, has come to naught.

In New York, Many in LGBT Community Hold Manning at a Distance - WNYC
Silverman said the community is always concerned about the media's representation of transgender people, and that Manning may not be the best figure to be the one to help educate the public on trans issues.  "That's probably not the best atmosphere in which to have a reasonable discussion about transgender people, what it means to be transgender and how transgender people should be treated by the medical community, whether that's in the medical system, or outside of it," he said.

Chelsea Manning: prison will not be kind to the WikiLeaks informer - Telegraph
It's hard to see why not. Imagine being forced to grow up as a man, knowing all the while you're a woman. Imagine being so desperate to deny your true gender that you "man up" by joining the army. [...] It makes me think that while I'd be the first to suggest that women aren't treated entirely equally in today's society, we get a far better deal than trans people. [...] I realised how little I knew about the trans community. It seems I'm not alone. [...] Perhaps Chelsea Manning's announcement is an opportunity for us all to reflect how little we understand the fear and torment she and others face every day of their lives.
