>>Michael Hastings - RIP
Yes, same here. Hastings was known to be working on a story that he said was supposed to be the biggest in his life.
Not like there aren’t people out there who are pros at this activity - who use all sorts of interesting tactics. I have a relative who has told me some interesting tales.
My other favorite are the convenient suicides, like the DC madam who supposedly had all sorts of info and conveniently killed herself (even after she said she would NOT commit suicide).
But the powers that be know we are now a weak and lazy people who never question what we are spoonfed by our authorities in the media.
