Re: NSA puff piece
Shane, I have to agree. 

NSA is just borrowing a page from the crisis managment playbook that corporations use when the media pounces on wrong doing. But it's disappointing to see 60 Minutes playing into the game.

Re: NSA puff piece
Agreed. A very one-sided piece, and it's not as if it would have been difficult to find a source with different viewpoint.

NSA puff piece
The whole time I was watching the "60 Minutes" segment I kept waiting for a counterpoint to the NSA's FUD spreading and its denial of privacy violations. Lord knows there are plent of security experts who could have provided some balance. But it never happened. The reporter was too soft and the final result was an NSA infomercial. Seems like in return for unprecedented access to NSA facilities "60 Minutes" agreed to do a puff piece.
