Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger on Tuesday vigorously defended his decision to publish a series of
articles based on the secret files leaked by former National Security
Agency contractor Edward Snowden, telling a parliamentary committee that
the right to continue pursuing the story goes to the heart of press
freedoms and democracy in Britain.
Rusbridger also told lawmakers that the Guardian had published only 1 percent of the 58,000 files it had received from Snowden.
“I would not expect us to be publishing a huge amount more,” he said.
