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.

 100% illegal unless they had a warrant.  I wonder why the source didn't mention how many other people/businesses were affected?

Yeah, AP has a sterling reputation to protect.

CEO Mary Junck gets 82% raise in money losing fiscal 2012. It ain't about integrity or doing the right thing because it's ALWAYS about the money.
