Guardian only published 1 percent of Snowden leaks

  • The Guardian has reportedly only published one percent of about 58,000 documents leaked by Edward Snowden. Editor Alan Rusbridger, who is currently facing scrutiny over whether or not the publication has compromised national security, said he won't "publish a huge amount more." Rusbridger mentioned that the paper was selective when it came to deciding what to release and it was secretive about names as well. 

    He noted that attacks from officials and lawmakers is intimidating the paper but publishing those documents was important in terms of debate about intelligence practices. 

    Other organizations including The New York Times and Washington Post noted that "press freedom itself is under attack in Britain."
