US spooks seem to be now self-censoring their copy in order to avoid upsetting the government. It turned out that the NSA programs are actually supported by half of Americans, even though many understand that their own personal data have been monitored.
Another research revealed that almost 25% of American writers have self-censored for fear of government surveillance. US hacks were curbing their research, declining certain assignments, even not discussing certain topics via the phone or e-mail, afraid of being targeted. Today it’s hard to find an American reporter willing to write about the Middle East, the military and terrorism.
Perhaps, they fear to end up on a no-fly list or be subjected to strip searches at airports. The researchers point out that Americans have long protested the persecution and constraints on journalists and writers working under repressive regimes abroad, but many seem to be ready to accept the new encroachments on their freedom in the USA.
When it happened so that the details have been released, journalists and intelligence specialists have argued that the evidence collected through surveillance could have been obtained in other ways, or just was not so crucial.
Nevertheless, American journalists who have always been a bit soft compared to the rest of the world, seem to have caved in completely. Remember New York Times writing about Apple while ignoring important news stories because Apple really needed its press release published?

|Mass surveillance will be the new norm in no time, unfortunately. As long as the worker bees are kept tired and anxious enough, they will be too preoccupied to protect themselves from this encroachment. The government will hold out and, within a single generation, we will have a nearly unquestioning acceptance of Big Brother.|
|Since most reporters in the USA work for the media corporations and are afraid to speak and smaller papers are afraid of reprisals and being discredited by the major networks the Free press in the USA has met it`s death in the ironically named land of the free for over a decade.|
With the NSA`s invasion of privacy and basically tapping all citizens communications any that could potentially tell the truth have been muzzled in regard ground breaking news leaving only what little information the ruling classes allow to be printed which has to be taken with a pinch of salt,Putin kept his children out of the medias attention for almost 2 decades and the USA keeps all information pertinent to its activities just as close to it`s chest other than propaganda and denials nothing close to the real truth is allowed too the common man as it is proclaimed as treasonous or fabricated with no accountability.To prove such one only has to look at how many terrorists have been captured from the NSA spying in the last 10 years.
