Press freedom and responsibility

Kevin Anderson | 13:32 UK time, Tuesday, 27 June 2006

One of the things that we'll be discussing today is press freedom and responsibility in the wake of President Bush's condemnation of the decision for US media, in particular the New York Times, to report details of financial surveillance that led to the arrests of several men in Miami who allegedly were plotting attacks on several US targets including the Sears Tower in Chicago.

There is a debate on the BBC News website about President Bush's criticism. What do you think? Was the press right to disclose details of the surveillance? Or do you think the press should have considered how the information might be used by potential plotters?
