To assist journalists and other concerned citizens in reflecting on the extent of National Security Agency surveillance and weakening of our digital infrastructure, the Internet Archive has created a curated library of short television news clips presenting key statements and other representations.


The experimental, Chrome and Safari only, library launches today with more than 700 chronologically ordered television citations drawn from the Archive’s television news research service.  The TV quotes can be browsed by rolling over clip thumbnails, queried via transcripts and sorted for specific speakers.  Citation links, context, connections to source broadcasters and options to borrow can be explored by following the More/Borrow links on each thumbnail.

My best, Roger
