Beltway Corporate Media Elite Attack Fellow Journalists for Revealing Government Secrets

Interview with Jeff Cohen, director of the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, conducted by Scott Harris

nsa

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, stranded in a transit terminal at Moscow’s International airport, continues to seek political asylum outside the United States as the Obama administration pressures nations around the world to deny his request for refuge reportedly made to 20 governments. Last month, Snowden revealed details the U.S. government’s previously unknown massive collection of domestic and overseas phone and Internet communications. The Obama administration has responded to the unauthorized revelations by filing charges against the 30-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and recent employee of a government defense contractor with three felonies: espionage, theft and conversion of government property.

Snowden has become the eighth person to be charged by the Obama administration with crimes under the 1917 Espionage Act, more than double the number prosecuted by all previous U.S. presidents combined.

As world media outlets attempt to follow Snowden’s every move, U.S. corporate media has focused a great deal of attention on the activities of journalists like the British Guardian newspaper columnist Glenn Greenwald, a primary source for the publication of Snowden’s surveillance revelations. Government officials and some journalists have condemned Greenwald as being complicit in exposing U.S. government secrets, urging that he be charged with a crime. Between The Lines’ Scott Harris spoke with Jeff Cohen, founder of the media watch group, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, and the senior producer of MSNBC's Phil Donahue show until it was terminated on the eve of the Iraq war. Cohen, who now serves as the founding director of the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, discusses the disturbing increase in attacks on journalists as they investigate and report on covert government surveillance programs and their possible civil liberties violations.

Jeff Cohen is author of the book, “Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media.” For more information on the Park Center for Independent Media, Ithaca College, N.Y., visit Ithaca.edu/rhp/independentmedia and Jeff Cohen's website at JeffCohen.org.
