PRISM would still be able to capture the same traffic that comes from
a TOR network.   TOR just anonymizes the source, not the data inside.
An example of an email sent via TOR:  PRISM would still know the From:
and To: addresses, as well as the entire body (unless encrypted
separately beforehand).  What PRISM wouldn't know is the IP address
that originated the email in the first place.

TOR does have it's uses for sure, but avoiding PRISM isn't one of them.
