We live in the United States of Surveillance — with cameras increasingly positioned on street corners and with much more invisible spying online and on the phone. Anyone who is paying attention knows that privacy could be out the window. All of this is not happening by accident -well funded powerful agencies and companies are engaged in the business of keeping tabs on what we do, what we say, and what we think.
To many in the world, today, the face of America also has A BIG NOSE for sniffing and sifting mountains of data—phone calls, emails and texts. And with many mouths silenced by paranoia to keep what they decide is secret, secret. America has become a Surveillance-Industrial State where everyone’s business has become its business, and where one huge US intelligence Agency has been given the sanction and unlimited amounts of money to spy on the whole world.
Mass Surveillance is the focus of this new 6 part investigative documentary series examining who is watching whom and why.

If the film includes Danny Schechter one can bet excellence comes along with it.
Yes, Danny Schechter does the narration and all the interviews in all 6 parts, and does a great job.

Reblogged this on Puppet Master's Slave Market and commented:
The continuing saga of American Authoritarianism.
Now that the western countries have created many enemies from invading so many, they are going to a military state like Russia. The US and Russia should combine and become the most powerful nation of all time.
