AP Sues US Gov’t over Fake FBI News Article Booby Trapped with Surveillance Virus
#1

The Associated Press, one of the main sources for mainstream news articles in the world, is currently suing the U.S. government. It's claim?
The FBI endangered the AP's reputation when the federal law enforcement agency sent out a link to a fake AP article the FBI had created which was laced with a surveillance virus that would infect the computer of anyone who clicked on it, thereby enabling the FBI to spy on them.
AP:
"It is improper and inconsistent with a free press for government personnel to masquerade as The Associated Press or any other news organization," [AP General Counsel Karen] Kaiser wrote. "The FBI may have intended this false story as a trap for only one person. However, the individual could easily have reposted this story to social networks, distributing to thousands of people, under our name, what was essentially a piece of government disinformation." [emphasis added]
Disinformation laced with spyware? Yes America, our government does that.
But I'm sure we're supposed to all believe this only happened this one time in this one specific case, right?
If you'll recall, this is also the same agency that it recently came to light had created 13 different fictitious companies in order to run a fleet of small spy planes that fly around stalking everyone and scooping up our metadata as well.
