This is The Briefing, a ten-minute-or-less podcast of tech news, for the week ending January 19, 2013. In this edition: the Justice Department faces heavy criticism over its aggressive handling of the Swartz case, Facebook brings out Graph Search and Gillard attacks Twitter for not being part of its new social media protocol.

For those who missed out what The Briefing is, here’s a blog post explaining the show. Feel free to offer any suggestions, improvements and constructive criticism for our new show.
