12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Brazilian President Cancels White House Visit Over NSA Surveillance From "Free Speech Radio News": "Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff has canceled plans for a state visit to the White House next month. President Rousseff said she won't schedule a state visit until an investigation of NSA surveillance of her email and that of other Brazilians is complete. And according to the Washington Post, Brazil is also looking at discontenting from US-based internet systems, and insulating Brazilian content in a move that Sashca Meinrath with the New America Foundation says could endanger the “open, interconnected structure” of the internet. Information about the NSA spying on Brazil was revealed by former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden."
