from Russia Today: The British government’s attempts to stem the tide of articles on mass
surveillance have gone beyond intimidating the journalist behind the
publications. Just a day after Glenn Greenwald’s partner was detained at Heathrow airport, The Guardian’s editor, Alan Rusbridger, came forward
describing how the authorities pressured the newspaper to destroy
documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Mr. Rusbridger has
explained why he gave in to pressure from government agents, and
destroyed hard-drives carrying information obtained from Edward Snowden.
