US whistleblower Edward Snowden would not have given his material to the Guardian had the website sat behind a paywall, according to the Guardian’s deputy chief executive, David Pemsel.

Openness is at the heart of the Guardian’s strategy, Pemsel said during his opening keynote at the Guardian Media Summit in London, and without an open reach, figures like Snowden would have gone elsewhere and the Guardian would have lost its acclaimed journalism on the issue.
