SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A new poll shows that most Americans don’t think President Obama’s proposed changes to the National Security Agency will protect their privacy.
The Pew Research Center poll found that 73% of Americans don’t think that the new protections, which would restrict the government’s storage of “metadata” will have an impact on their level of privacy.
An even higher percentage said that they didn’t think restricting metadata storage would harm the country’s counterterrorism efforts.
22News reporter Juli McDonald is in Springfield talking to people in our area about their thoughts on the proposed reforms. See what they have to say on 22News at Noon.
