´´Wire Tapping ´´ Technologically Challenged Media´´Schadenfreude, It´s Like German Chocolate Cake for the soul.

With all the Hacking and Phone tapping fuss, here are a couple of cartoon strips I came across today.
Is the media really so dumb or do they know all this stuff and realise that they are essentially an ignorance factory doing a fantastic job of nurturing ignorance or are they the Ignorant leading the ignorant, or the blind leading the blind?


On ´´Wire tapping´´, Vault 7  Snowden and all that, demonstrates the fact that all data is harvested by definition and therefore ordering a wiretap or a surveillance is not necessary these days. It´s more like dialling out for a ´pizza´ for john podesta or a ´hot dog´ for president Obama, you might say.

´´Wire Tap ´´ is merely a colloquialism in this digital wirelessly networked age.

For some real Vintage surveillance porn, one has really to become acquainted with the work of Duncan Campbell and his banned television series, ´the Secret Society´. Duncan  Continues his stellar brand of Journalism, sadly not practised by the media presstitutes of Neo Liberal Globalism.

First Though a bit of ABC.

So one sees that there really is very little new under the sun indeed Baruch Spinoza said this in 1676.

Barack Obama had some explaining to do to Chancellor Frau Merkel.


Duncan Cambell Breaks it down in this article here.

The final word and I for one, am betting that the last laugh will rest with President Donald Trump.

Schadenfreude Anyone.
