Cameras Inside the New York Times

Eric Nagourney, in an opinion piece for the New York Times:

In announcing the cameras, the company said they were being installed in part to “shorten incident response time.”

Ah. That. The thing too scary to talk about in anything but a whisper.

We may not all have experienced moments where survival depended on shortening “response time.” But the idea has become an all-too-familiar part of our work. The concert in Las Vegas. The mosques in Christchurch. The cafes and nightclubs in Paris. The school in Parkland. The temple in Pittsburgh. And yes, that newsroom in Annapolis.

The Day the Cameras Came

There is really no contest between Safety and Privacy. Safety is halfway around the block before Privacy can get its shoes on.
