Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page Slam 'Outrageous' PRISM Reports

08/06/2013 20:19

The leaders of the country's largest technology companies are apparently taking personally allegations that they are cooperating in a covert program that funnels users' information to the government.
Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page, the chief executive officiers of Facebook and Google, respectively, each issued strongly worded statements late Friday, denying any involvement in the so-called PRISM program.
"I want to respond personally to the outrageous press reports about PRISM," Zuckerberg wrote in a public Facebook message that was liked 69,000 times in the 21 minutes after it was posted. "Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other government direct access to our servers."
Page similarly pushed back in a blog post cosigned by Google's chief lawyer, David Drummond, titled "What the...?"
"Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users' data are false, period," the Google executive wrote.
Late Thursday, The Washington Post and The Guardian each published separate stories on the secret surveillance program, reporting that it siphons text, photographs and other digital information from nine major U.S. Internet companies -- Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple -- and allows the U.S. government to monitor users' online activities. The original version of the Post's story suggested the firms were voluntarily giving the government direct access to their servers -- a claim the paper later seemed to hedge.
