America’s Corrupt Media – How Reporters Took Direct Orders from Hillary Clinton’s Staff

It is the job of the Fourth Estate to act as a check and a restraint on the others, to illumine the dark corners of Ministries, to debunk the bureaucrat, to throw often unwelcome light on the measures and motives of our rulers. ‘News’, as Hearst once remarked, ‘is something which somebody wants suppressed: all the rest is advertising’.

New York Police Have Used Stingrays Widely, New Documents Show

The NYPD also disclosed that it does not get a warrant before using a Stingray, which sweeps up massive amounts of data.
