    Wide-scale wiretapping in a Five Eyes country? Say it ain’t so!

    In all seriousness, how is it the federal government can sanction illegal activity for corporations such as wiretapping? This is what Richard Nixon and his administration got slammed for not even 50 years ago, now it’s par for the course.

      Oh no, as they will clearly explain, it’s not wiretapping if it’s only metadata.

      Because the laws haven’t kept up with the times.
