"This war on whistleblowers is not ancillary to journalism, but actually it directly affects it," says Trevor Timm, executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF), a nonprofit that works to provide funding, encryption tools, and other resources to journalists who expose government secrets. "And it's making it much more difficult for the public to get the information they need."
Watch Reason TV's interview with Timm about topics ranging from why encryption matters, what tools journalists, whistleblowers, and others who value privacy should be using to protect their communications, and what FPF plans to do if it's ever targeted by the government for funneling money to entities such as Wikileaks.
