"There is a huge difference between mass surveillance and targeted surveillance."
Ewen MacAskill is the Defence and Intelligence Correspondent for The Guardian. In 2013, he was part of the team who travelled to Hong Kong to interview NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. As a result of his reporting on global surveillance disclosures, he was named co‑recipient of the prestigious 2013 George Polk Award for national security reporting. CitizenFour, a documentary directed by Laura Poitras that captured MacAskill and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s interviews with Snowden, won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2015.
