Classification Conundrum

Friday, September 02, 2011


How should the government handle information that is both secret and no longer secret?  It's a problem agencies like the CIA and FBI have long grappled with, but it's made all the more complicated by groups like Wikileaks who make classified information available for the public.  The New York Times' Scott Shane talks about the government's classification dilemma.

If you say, this info will not turn America upside down, you are on crack cocaine.

What if On The Media covers the coverage of this material.

On the Media will be added to the list of Media outlets who received this Leaked Info as part of History.

Is there Cover-up in NPR? Yes.... what is On The Media doing about this?

If On the Media does not cover this, Garfield and Brooks should be replaced with new and brave journalists.

I just finished fast forwarding through your seemingly never-ending segment about teenage television soap dramadies. What a complete waste of time.

Please don't do this to your listeners again.
