On Monday, November 17, the Stanford speaker series The Security Conundrum will continue with three-time Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Barton Gellman. The topic is "Inside the Newsroom: The Media and Edward Snowden." The event will be moderated by Philip Taubman, a consulting professor for Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation and the former Moscow and Washington Bureau Chief for The New York Times.
The Security Conundrum will feature other security experts during the course of the year, including former presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Reggie Walton on April 10 and US senator Dianne Feinstein. It recently featured General Michael Hayden discussing the National Security Agency; a video of that conversation is available on the Hoover event page. The series is cosponsored by Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, the Center for International Security and Cooperation, the Hoover Institution, Stanford Continuing Studies, Stanford in Government, and Stanford Law School.
