I would think they methods they use are really unimportant here, given the level of direct involvement by the FBI here. This is akin to giving a PI a list of names, what to look for, and then paying them if he finds anything.

Geek squad is clearly acting as agent of the FBI here. All evidence should be disallowed due to lack of warrant.

CEO pay is determined by the Board of directors. CEO's are often also members of the board of directors at other companies. " You vote yes for my pay raise, and I'll vote yes for your pay raise" And so the circle jerk continues with pay raises, bonuses, and perks, regardless of performance. Is it really a surprise then that the CEO pay has risen as fast as it has?

Some stooge at dhs "leaked" the story to them and they never bothered to check with the only two providers in the state to verify the story before publishing. So reckless disregard for the truth still stands.

Reporters really need to go back to journalism school and learn how to do fact checking and stop regurgitating whatever some government "source" feeds them to print.
