New York Times Admits Reason For Delay In Delivering NSA Wiretapping Story

On the 2004 campaign trail, President Bush denied the existence of an American warrantless surveillance program. But inside the Department of Justice, an attorney leaked information to The New York Times explaining the National Security Agency did indeed eavesdrop on phones around the country.

The New York Times sat on the story for a year, and couldn’t decide what to say in order to explain the delay. This week there’s new information out on that story. NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss these developments.
