The opening panel will focus on recent disclosures of National Security Agency surveillance, including the PRISM program, and explore how we now view conflicts between security, freedom and privacy and whether those conflicts can be resolved.
The second panel will examine the press freedom implications of this year's seizures of Associated Press and Fox News records, the attorney general's new policies and the proposed federal shield law for journalists.
The program will be live-streamed at Newseum.org. Comments or questions may be tweeted to #NewseumNSA.
