|Resource title||With Liberty to Monitor All: How Large-Scale US Surveillance is Harming Journalism, Law, and American Democracy|
|Author/source||Human Rights Watch/American Civil Liberties Union|
|Date published||July 2014|
|Summary text/ abstract||With Liberty to Monitor All, a joint report by Human Rights Watch and the ACLU, documents the insidious effects of large-scale US surveillance on the practice of journalism and law in the United States, and the threat it poses to basic freedoms and democratic values. The report is based on extensive interviews with journalists, lawyers, and senior US government officials. JThe US has an obligation to protect national security, and may engage in surveillance to the extent it is lawful, necessary, and proportionate to a legitimate state interest. But many existing surveillance programs are indiscriminate or overbroad, and threaten freedom of expression, the right to counsel, and the public's ability to hold its government to account. The US should reform these programs to ensure they are targeted and legitimate, increase transparency around national security and surveillance matters, and take steps better to protect whistleblowers and the media.|
