Press freedoms are under threat from the British government, warns this column in the Guardian newspaper. Editor Alan Rusbridger says British authorities threatened the paper with legal action unless it destroyed materials obtained from ex-CIA contractor Edward Snowden. He called the censorship a 'pointless' move that would not prevent further reporting on U.S. and British surveillance programmes.
