Deadline Now: The Bill of Rights and National Security

Friday, August 22, 2014 at 8:30 p.m.

The Bill of Rights contains guarantees of freedom of the press and protection against unconstitutional invasions of our privacy. But there are also issues involving national security.

Lawyers, the press and the U.S. government have been arguing about these issues for years. And today, thanks to technology, it is possible for the government to collect more information about us than even George Orwell may ever have dreamt possible.

U.S. District Judge James G. Carr, ACLU of Ohio Board of Directors member Sue Carter, and attorney Fritz Byers, noted for his expertise in cases involving the First Amendment, join host Jack Lessenberry to discuss the issues.
