IN THE NEWS [Newcastle Journal (England)]
(Newcastle Journal (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Actor and comedian Stephen Fry has condemned the "disgraceful" mass surveillance of communications by spy agencies GCHQ and the NSA and said it was "very depressing" how much governments wanted to control the internet.
The QI host said there was "something squalid and rancid about being spied on" and using people's fears about terrorism as a means to spy on citizens was "duplicitous and deeply wrong".
In a pre-recorded video message, Fry addressed a conference organised by the Don't Spy On Us campaign at Shoreditch Town Hall in east London to mark the first anniversary of revelations by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
