The Guardian has been under pressure ever since it began reporting about the scale of US and British spy programs. The British newspaper has even been threatened with closure.
The Guardian has taken on a very powerful opponent. Over the past months, the newspaper has been publishing stories based on information revealed by Edward Snowdon. Among the disclosures is that British intelligence is able to monitor all private online activity in Europe. Though the newspaper has been the target of threats and intimidation, it continues to publish new revelations.
