12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: NSA Surveillance From Free Speech Radio News: "As more details emerge about the documents leaked by US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden, the Obama Administration is publicly defending the secret spying programs as legal and necessary. But civil liberties and constitutional law experts disagree, saying the surveillance of both US citizens and representatives of foreign governments living in the US violates privacy protections in the Fourth Amendment. The leaked documents have also revealed that testimony administration officials gave to Congress this year about the scope of the surveillance was false. In Washington, FSRN’s Alice Ollstein reports."
