ガーディアンの編集局長、国会に呼ばれる、そして乗り切る

2013.12.04
昨日、ガーディアン紙の編集局長、アラン・ラスブリッジャー氏が国会の国内問題を扱う小委員会に呼ばれて、エドワード・スノーデン氏による情報リークを報道したことについて質問に答えた。

Guardian will not be intimidated over NSA leaks, Alan Rusbridger tells MPs

In one curious exchange, the committee chair, Keith Vaz, asked Rusbridger if he loved his country.

"I'm slightly surprised to be asked the question," replied Rusbridger. "But, yes, we are patriots and one of the things we are patriotic about is the nature of democracy, the nature of a free press and the fact that one can in this country discuss and report these things.

"One of the things I love about this country is that we have that freedom to write, and report, and to think and we have some privacy, and those are the concerns which need to be balanced against national security, which no one is underestimating. I can speak for the entire Guardian staff who live in this country that they want to be secure too."


 読者によるコメント欄も意見は百花繚乱。単純に羨むだけでは何も変わらないが、特定秘密保護法が確定してしまいそうな日本と比べると、なんと民主的なと思えてしまう。

 国会に呼ばれるのは彼だけではない。英国内の諜報活動期間であるMI5のトップも呼ばれることになったようだ。

 全く見落としていたのだが、6月にスノーデン氏のリークに関してガーディアン以外のメディアには規制の圧力がかかったらしい。

 国連も動き出すようだし。

It's outrageous to accuse the Guardian of aiding terrorism by publishing Snowden's revelations
http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/02/guardian-terrorism-snowden-alan-rusbridger-free-press

The claims made that the Guardian has threatened national security need to be subjected to penetrating scrutiny. I will be seeking a far more detailed explanation than the security chiefs gave the intelligence committee. If they wish to pursue an agenda of unqualified secrecy, then they are swimming against the international tide. They must justify some of the claims they have made in public, because, as matters stand, I have seen nothing in the Guardian articles that could be a risk to national security. In this instance the balance of public interest is clear.

 これは日本で観られるかな?
