The Surveillance State and the China Summit

National Security Agency programs are collecting data about citizens' daily communications. Is there any privacy left? Does it matter? There's outrage from our Left, and schadenfreude from our Right. What is worse -- US surveillance of our online movements, or Google and Facebook monitoring our behavior? Does it amount to a totalitarian society? President Obama begins a two-day summit with the president of China, Xi Jinping. How much can we object to China's own procedures?

Joining us this week on the Right is Rich Lowry (National Review), and special guest Melody Barnes (former director of the Domestic Policy Council for Obama).
