Mark Klein Interviewed on MSNBC, C-SPAN and NPR. The Senate Reconsiders Immunity.
If you were watching "TV" on Wednesday evening, you may have seen Keith Olbermann's excellent interview with Mark Klein, the AT&T technician who came forward in 2005 with evidence of government spying. If you missed it, you can watch the video now on MSNBC.com.
Klein also spoke to NPR's All Things Considered and this morning to Washington Journal on C-SPAN. Newspapers around the country are covering the story, and The New York Times published five great letters-to-the-editor urging congress to hold the telcos accountable.
The growing media attention and grassroots activism has become a serious factor in the Senate's decision-making. Just a month ago, the immunity provision was expected to pass the Senate Judiciary Committee easily — but today, members suddenly delayed its scheduled markup to reconsider their positions. Articles in The Hill and Raw Story show the telco advocates on the defensive while opponents of spying stand strong.
