    who, "in public" do you really trust?

    What's saddest is, one used to simply go to The Newspapers, period. Now you have to be careful which one you go to, because the Feds the Corporations might employ someone whose best interest lies in turning your ass in,
    if not worse...

    In that respect, the surreptitiousness absolutely makes sense. But the bigger picture here is the fact that in the reporting of this kind of thing by Teh Mediaz, the line between "leaking" and "whistleblowing" is blurred. That is surely deliberate, in and of itself...
