Germany Advises Journalists To Stop Using Google Over US Spying Concerns, May Ask Snowden To Tesity Against NSA

Snowden To Tesity Against NSA

The spat between the US and Germany is getting worse by the minute. Following yesterday's meaningless escalation by the Treasury accusing, via official pathways, Germany of being the main culprit for Europe's lack of recovery (and Germany's subsequent retaliation), it is Germany's turn now to refocus public attention on Big Brother's spying pathology when a union representing Germany's journalists advised its members earlier today to stop using Google and Yahoo because of the latest report implicating the NSA in eavesdropping on Google and Yahoo.

From Reuters:

"The German Federation of Journalists recommends journalists to avoid until further notice the use of search engines and e-mail services from Google and Yahoo for their research and digital communication," the union said in a statement.

 

It cited "scandalous" reports of interception of both companies' web traffic by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and Britain's GCHQ.

 

"The searches made by journalists are just as confidential as the contact details of their sources and the contents of their communication with them," said Michael Konken, head of the union which represents about 38,000 journalists. He said there were safe alternatives for both searches and email.

And while in the US having one's dirty laundry is almost perceived as a status symbol by a culture that encourages online exhibitionism via Facebook and other social media (so what if some bureaucrat in Virginia knows more than what is public), in Germany privacy is actually taken seriouysly.

  Let us save a whole heap of time and money AND kill a few birds with one stone by arresting surviving members of the Rockefeller/Bush criminal cabal before they rot. If we go messing with hostile courts, we lose it all. And they are hostile while facilitating the Wall Street looting, with Eric 'The Holder' Holder running interference and smoke screens. The U.N. also is up to being 'The Big Court of the World' to take our personal weapons so the Wall Street looting, HAARP, carpetbagging of weather distressed farmland, etc. may continue, unchecked for the benefit of the obsolete monarchies of Europe with England, Netherlands and Belgium in particular.
