Wednesday's must-reads from Washington

By Jerry Zremski

WASHINGTON -- Two great stories about the government surveillance top today's list of top reads, which will be the last until next week, as I will be tied up covering President Obama's trip to upstate New York the next two days.

First, The New York Times tells us that facial scanning is the latest tool in the federal government's grab bag of surveillance techniques.

Then, and not surprisingly, The Hill documents how the National Security Agency imbroglio is hurting President Obama with young voters.

Lastly, The Washington Post offers a fascinating take on the politics behind the selection of the next Federal Reserve chairman.
