Most Americans are not concerned that government to monitor your calls
Last Thursday it was definitely related scandals U.S. government and its relationship with the Privacy of all its citizens. While in the morning we heard the massive collection program metadata of all telephone calls made â€‹â€‹by Verizon , in the evening we appeared PRISM .
Despite the outrageousness of the situation (for any informed citizen of digital rights), most of the people most affected, the U.S. still sees this situation under the idea that “he who does wrong does nothing, fears nothing ‘. This is reflected in a survey conducted by Pew Research, where 56% of Americans said they were in agreement with the Monitoring of telephone calls if this serves to investigate terrorist threats.
Of course, the interesting thing is that while they see as acceptable that the National Security Agency U.S.. UU. (NSA) has full access to your phone calls, do not share that view with respect to other forms of communication, for the 52% of Americans oppose the government to monitor your email.
