Rachel Maddow on PRISM and Meta Data (6-07-2013) – The Government Data Controversy

by gradycarter


DISCLAIMER: I don’t think that Rachel is perfect, I understand some frustration with her snark at times, but she is thorough, and highly intelligent. I appreciate that she is very specific most of the time so that at least you can refute what she says.

With all of that said, this Meta Data stuff freaks me out. I like to think of myself as somewhat of a libertarian, and thus large groups and organizations intimidate me (whether that be government or business). What do you think, should we be tracked and mined for data as it seems like we are (polling has suggested that the majority of Americans are ok with it)?
