The FBI’s Secret War on Journalism

by Will

I’ll be delivering the Howard R. Marsh Lecture at the University of Michigan next week, about my work investigating the FBI’s surveillance of journalists throughout U.S. history.

If you’re in the area, it’s free and open to the public!

Here’s more about it:

President Trump has waged a public campaign against journalism as “fake news” and “enemies of the people,” but lesser known is the FBI’s long-running campaign against the press. Marsh Professor of Journalism Will Potter discusses his investigations into FBI spying, and why the bureau has considered journalism such a dangerous threat

I admire Snowden for his moral integrity and for what he did, and I am truly impressed by your work as well.
Keep investigating, and keep telling what you find. Thank you!
Flemming, retired journalist
