Most investigative journalists say the U.S. government has spied on them
According to a new poll from the Pew Research Center at Columbia University, most investigative journalists say the United States government has spied on them.
“Approximately two-thirds of the members of the nonprofit Investigative Reporters and Editors group said the government likely collects journalists’ phone call data, emails or online communication. Eighty percent attributed use of such tactics to their profession,” reports The Hill.
“Fears of government spying are higher among those who report on the federal government or national security and foreign affairs, with 71 percent of those journalists saying the government has collected their data. Sixty-two percent of other investigative journalists agreed.”–The Hill
