“If (newspapers) don’t demonstrate some social responsibility it will be very difficult for government to stand back and not to act.”

British Prime Minister David Cameron addressed the House of Commons in London Monday and said his government was prepared to crack down on British media outlets that threaten British intelligence activities by publishing leaked documents. Cameron said that The Guardian’s articles containing leaked information by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden have made the country “less safe.”
