Guardian Editor 'British More Complacent' about Surveillance

The Guardian has been on the front lines of exposing vast surveillance undertaken by the US and the UK -- and has been targeted by the authorities as a result. In an interview, Editor-in-Chief Alan Rusbridger talks about his confrontation with the government and why the scandal isn't making waves in Britain.
The Guardian was recently visited by British authorities and asked to destroy hard drives containing sensitive information from Edward Snowden.
