Trump rarely follows through on his frequent legal threats against the media. Now, for the first time since taking office, he has, with his re-election campaign filing a lawsuit against the New York Times.

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. We’ve been releasing these on a rolling basis, and today we’re highlighting some of the latest. https://knightcolumbia.org/content/new-documents-point-to-special-treatment-for-favored-officials …

Important transparency work on the opaque and frustrating process of prepublication review

Big launch day for @themarkup, a new outlet that covers the tech industry through data-driven reporting. And if you have a tip or might be source for a story, check out their @SecureDrop tipline.

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.

"Legal experts called the NYPD’s subpoena of a journalist’s Twitter data an 'abuse of authority' and 'George Orwell-level shocking.'"

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!

Potentially a very important tool for journalists, who often must open unknown documents from strangers.

Today was the first day of hearings in Julian Assange's extradition case. A reminder: virtually every civil liberties org, press freedom group, & major news outlet has denounced the Trump admin's dangerous charges as a direct affront to press freedom.

The potential chilling effect on journalists & others who expose official wrongdoing by publishing information disclosed to them by credible sources could have a profound impact on the public's right to know what their government is up to. https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2020/02/usuk-drop-charges-and-halt-extradition-of-julian-assange/ …

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.

Quoted @kgosztola

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.

Former NY Times general counsel: The cases against both Greenwald and Assange "are examples of governments using hacking laws to stifle political speech—and we should expect more of the same."
