    The government is spying on us through our computers, phones, cars, buses, etc.

    And Edward Snowden hasn't even released all his papers.

    Even now – after all of the revelations by Edward Snowden and other whistleblowers – spying apologists say that the reports are “exaggerated” or “overblown”, and that the government only spies on potential bad guys.

    In reality, the government is spying on everyone’s digital and old-fashioned communications.

    For example, the government is photographing the outside information on every piece of snail mail.

    The government is spying on you through your phone … and may even remotely turn on your camera and microphone when your phone is off.

    As one example, the NSA has inserted its code into Android’s operating system … bugging three-quarters of the world’s smartphones. Google – or the NSA – can remotely turn on your phone’s camera and recorder at any time.

    Did you even bother looking at the embedded links? It links to the New York Times, Business Week, Business Insider, Der Spiegel, Pro Publica, and the Wall Street Journal just to name a few sources.

    Of course he didn't. Does he ever look at anything before he starts running his trap. It's full of documentation.

    I presume the conspiracy theory blog, as a source, has misrepresented them. One cannot expect people to swim through conspiracy theory blogs to determine the extent of distortion.

    Why not actually look at the information being presented before immediately dismissing it?

    That's ridiculous. I'm not going to double check every sentence by Alex Jones to see where he has distorted his sources. Asking someone to disprove and explain the distortions in a conspiracy theory blog is ridiculous. This is a debate website, not a "disprove my CT source!" website.

    If you would like to discuss conspiracy theories and how CT blogs distort sources, I suggest you do so in the CT subforum and stop trying to push CT blogs as breaking news.

    Most of the information presented has been known for a long time and as others have pointed out the blog is filled with links to respected sources.

    I am not trying to push blogs as breaking news. When did I say that?

    While I utterly despise Alex Jones, I have found Washington's Blog to be a generally good site, even if I don't agree with what they say on everything.

    Did you see Alex Jones anywhere in the op? As you correctly pointed out its sourced to MSM.
