Everybody might be missing it.
Why would a guy film on his cell phone a bunch of “Rockford Files” obvious pretend phone workers going into a Federal building, a U.S. Senator’s office, unstopped by security, and gotten so far as to plant a bug in a phone. They didn’t get anything recorded, so no actual recorded bugging crime committed.
Me thinks this is like carrying a fake dangerous device through an airport security system and then exposing it to the public, ticking off a lot of security people.
SOOOOOooooo, spin it beforehand security folks, and say you caught these “New Media” types doing something Nixonian so maybe the true story will be divided and conquered.
Maybe. We’ll see. Think about it - these young guys aren’t stupid, just gutsy!!! Of course they know the law!
You are RIGHT..! Your theory is EXCELLENT..! Bravo!
Ah, no. They clearly had never heard of "two-party" consent laws when they made their original documentaries. Any competent media attorney would have told them what states to avoid when embarking on such an investigative story. Clearly, they stepped in it there precisely because they didn't know the law.
The most obvious explanation for him to record this (as I noted earlier) is so that he’s have the option to turn state’s evidence and save his own ass.
