At the cost of $100 million and phone logs from every American, the NSA's phone metadata program led to just two new intelligence reports from 2015 to 2019. Yes, *two.* This kind of surveillance needlessly threatens all journalists and their sources.
Through FOIA, @knightcolumbia and @ACLU have obtained thousands of documents relating to the government’s sweeping censorship system of prepublication review.

Important transparency work on the opaque and frustrating process of prepublication review
Trump administration officials are reportedly considering a plan to eject "hundreds" of Chinese journalists from the U.S. after China's removal of 3 WSJ reporters. Needless to say, that would be an outrageous press freedom violation.
For the last few months I've been working on an exciting new tool called DANGERZONE. It lets you convert potentially malicious PDFs or office documents into PDFs that you know are safe. I'll be releasing it at @nullcon in Goa, India!

Amnesty International—one of the leading human rights groups in the world—is strongly opposing Julian Assange's extradition. You don't have to like WikiLeaks to realize the huge and unprecedented danger the Trump admin's actions here pose to press freedom.
Judge asks James Lewis QC if offense of publishing this info would apply to newspapers. He replied 1989 Official Secrets Act would cover. “If journalist of newspaper publishes secret information likely to cause harm in the categories, it commits an offense.” #AssangeCase
The press freedom implications of the Assange case are profound. Today in court the prosecution agreed that newspapers in the US could be charged under the same precedent.
