Russia’s hack of the Democratic National Committee and the release of those materials to Wikileaks reminds us that the legal line between whistleblowing and leaking is thin indeed, as is the line between journalism and activism.
The post-Snowden flood of leaks looks like it may not soon abate, raising questions about the First Amendment; the role of the press; whistleblower protections and the power of the government to investigate illegal disclosures. While the topic generates strong opinion, we hope in this webinar to ground the discussion in existing law and policy.
