Play of the Day: Yes, The NSA Can Hear You Now

June 7, 2013

With news coming out that the National Security Agency has been collecting telephone data on millions of American Verizon customers, late-night comedians focused on Barack Obama's role in the program. Jay Leno made a play on the "big brother" term for surveillance government and made a joke about the amount of telephone time Americans use calling for pizza. Late Night's Jimmy Fallon also used some wordplay in referencing a formerly famous Verizon slogan.

On Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert asked, in light of the NSA news, about the differences between the Obama and Bush administrations. Colbert also skewered comments made by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on the topic of privacy.
