So the CIA accesses phones and TVs and laptops. And the CIA has been passing its code (more than is used to run facebook) onto private contractors. It’s staggering just how far into so many lives the grubby fingers of the CIA can slime. There should be an immense amount of fall-out from this. But it seems sections of liberal media are already out with mops and buckets. This from ‘The Guardian’ – The US intelligence agencies are facing fresh embarrassment…
You get that?
The fact that we seem to be living in a world akin to the Stasi on steroids – with instantly searchable and real time data as opposed to filing cabinets filled with ‘dob in your neighbour’ reports; that’s all a sideshow. The real concern is the CIA’s embarrassment. Expect more of a hullabaloo about the source of the documents than there will be about the contents of the documents. Expect arms to be thrown in the air at the CIA’s inability to keep secrets. Expect aspersions to be cast on either the authenticity of the documents or the relevance and/or efficacy of the codes and programmes revealed. Expect many versions of that old “nothing new and nothing to see” chestnut.
There’ll be a bit of descriptive reporting, but the hard questions will be washed out by a flow of tittle tattle and any attempt to focus on power will be dissipated by a 1001 “OMG! Is my Samsung TV watching me?” pieces of pap.
In other words, the liberal media will now dutifully execute its role as apologist and protector of power.
