Whistleblowers can no longer trust Journalists after the AP Scandal says Tony Gosling

AP Surveillance: 'Govts taking our rights away, not Al-Qaeda'

Up to a hundred reporters and editors at the Associated Press have been targeted, in a massive US government surveillance operation against the news service. AP is calling the monitoring network - created by the Justice Department itself - unprecedented in size and scope, and a gross violation of privacy. One consequence of this surveillance scandal is that whistleblowers will now think twice, before calling a news desk - that's according to investigative journalist and historian, Tony Gosling.
