Play of the Day: Hillary Clinton Joins Twitter. Will the NSA Surveil Her?

June 12, 2013

Hillary Clinton joined Twitter this week, prompting late-night hosts to joke about the former senator. Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon both joked about her husband's Internet usage patterns, while David Letterman echoed an important statement, saying "A politician on Twitter, what could possibly go wrong?"

The National Security Agency's surveillance of telephone and Internet data continues to be the main topic on late-night TV. On Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert referenced the poor graphic design in the leaked PRISM PowerPoint and had an idea for those trying to get their communication off the grid. The Daily Show's John Oliver looked at the program philosophically, asking if convenience or privacy was more important. Letterman felt comforted by the idea that someone was listening to him, while O'Brien made a similar joke about the popularity of the program along gender lines. Jay Leno looked at the girlfriend and lifestyle that leaker Edward Snowden left and wondered if he made the correct decision.

Fast forward to 4:10 to see the NSA's new ad targeting recent grads.
