WASHINGTON -- If you call a radio talk show and get on the air, you might be recorded by the FBI.
The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet.
The FBI says it is not playing big brother by policing the airwaves, but rather seeking access to what airs as potential evidence.
"This doesn't give us any enhanced capability, prying into or any 'big brother' concerns because this is information that's being put out on the airwaves," FBI spokesman Paul Bresson told WMAL.com. "Its very important to our investigators to know what's being reported."
Bresson cites as an example of the case of the Times Square bomber.
"It's ideal for cases like that because we can extract information that's already been reported and help our investigators make better decisions."
big sister napolitano is listening in.
B.S. We have two kinds of AM radio stations in our area - Spanish and Rush Limbaugh-like. And I’m sure they are not listening to Mexican music.
I think Rush will have a lot of fun with this on Monday.....
Most of you fail in realizing that the NSA has a number of sites/facilities outside of D.C. that their sole purpose is to monitor all communication in and out of this country....24/7, 365. =.=
Is this an arm of the “Tell On People who Diss Obama” website, whatever it was called??
If there is somebody they should be listening into its Leftist Talk Radio. The Norman Goldman show to be exact. He for several weeks has been asking his callers to rig the election.

Unless there is some reason for investigation,
the federal law and the Constitution still
protect the rights of citizens.
—FBI agent Greg Stejskal
Yeah, we are listening to every thing you say on the airwaves but that isn't big brotherism. BS, they think we are the dumbest SOBs living don't they?
Guarantee you they monitor this too.
I’ve been warned.

So since Rush is based in Florida, do you think that they have FBI on standby for us? My thought is they’d be on standby in every city.
