‘Left, Right & Center’: The Surveillance State and the China Summit

Posted on Jun 8, 2013
KCRW

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask whether there is any privacy left after revelations that National Security Agency programs are collecting data about citizens’ daily communications. Does it matter? There’s outrage from our left, and schadenfreude from our right. What is worse—U.S. surveillance of our online movements, or Google and Facebook monitoring our behavior? Does it amount to a totalitarian society?

Also, President Obama begins a two-day summit with the president of China, Xi Jinping. How much can we object to China’s own procedures?

Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller this week are Rich Lowry, editor of National Review who gives the right’s perspective, and Melody Barnes, former director of Obama’s Domestic Policy Council.
