Whistleblowers, Leaks, and the Media is a broad-based introduction to the legal and policy issues regarding the media’s coverage of national security. A joint project of the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, it is a compilation of essays looking at the constitutional foundations and limitations of the U.S. government in a contemporary context. It examines how laws and freedom collide in cases where individuals leak information to the media. The book also explains how the U.S. Supreme Court has interpreted laws that pit freedoms against government interests and considers how the Internet world and big data are affecting privacy.
