How Journalists Deal with Israeli Censors—THE EDGE

By Kaveh Waddell (@kavehewaddell)

TODAY IN ONE PARAGRAPH: The U.S. government has sprung another leak. Separately, a Russian gang got its hands on more than a billion username and password combinations. A U.S. major general who was gunned down in an attack on a military base near Kabul was the highest-ranked American officer killed in the Afghanistan war. And the Gaza conflict is straining U.S.-Israel ties.
