|The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into cyber intrusions targeting reporters of the New York Times. The suggestions are that Russian intelligence agencies could be responsible for the attacks. As usual, Russia and China (or sometimes Korea) are the first suspects in any unresolved problem.
Although individual reporters are targeted in the cyberattacks, the investigators do not believe the newspaper’s entire network was compromised. So far, the FBI hasn’t disclosed how many reporters had been affected or how many email accounts were targeted.
In the meantime, federal authorities continue to investigate a breach of the Democratic National Committee. That attack was also attributed to Russian intelligence agencies by outside cybersecurity experts. As a result of the attack, embarrassing internal emails were posted online. Besides, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and other Democratic entities have also been affected in the breach. As a result, Democrats were advised not to allow family members to answer their phones or read incoming texts after their leaked data was posted online.
As for the New York Times reported hack, the newspaper spokesperson would not comment on the FBI’s investigation. However, she issued a statement, admitting that like most news organizations, the New York Times is vigilant about guarding against attempts to hack into its systems through a variety of ways. Such approaches include cooperation with outside investigators and law enforcement. Apparently, the newspaper won’t comment on any specific attempts to gain illegal access to its services.

|It always seems that Russian is the one responsible, for every attack why we cannot face that is an internal affair, I do believe they say so 'cause its serves as propaganda for their own purpose as long term plan, please US citizen wake up, stop looking outside.|

|Good... hack the liberal/progressive rag into oblivion. Nothing but lies, exaggerations, and leftist propaganda.|
|It seems that I'm not the only one who's had enough of worthless, leftist propaganda machines like the New York Post having the audacity to call themselves "newspapers" & their employees "journalists". When was it that it became acceptable for people who used to seek out the hidden truth & expose it to become mouthpieces for the liberal fascists who're trying so hard to create a perfect storm of a class & race war?|
|Yeah it's amazing how they blame Russia when they're not running for president and not the ones that will get shafted if a tyrant takes over. The prime suspects would logically be RNC people or just concerned citizens.|
@3 It became acceptable when people kept buying the stuff and clicking their ads even though 95% of the media is now owned by six corporations whose boards of directors have overlapping members.
Also, when government agents/plants started out as interns and worked their way up to editor. I remember an issue of Popular Mechanics from 1996 I had that had the Constitution in flames on the cover with the cover story being "How the government spies on you". Ten years later they parrot the government line and the only guy that was there in 1996 was an intern, but in 2006 was the head editor. Totally a plant.
Clearly most of the media, like Google and Face[scan]]book etc. are now government front corporations.
|Wow! So this is where the ageing libertarian meth-heads come to die! "Laissez faire capitalism isn't dead! Oh PLEASE reassure me that it isnt!!"||
