And you don’t send an assistant producer to spy on a hacker convention.
The hypocrisy of the dinosaur media can be quite astounding at times. They often employ tactics that range from unethical to illegal. When called on it they merely shrug it off with a “no comment” like in this case:

And they wonder why their ratings are plunging.
Update: Another, more forgiving, view on this.
