DEFCON 15 and the Case of the Undercover Reporter

I heard about this incident on TWiT where they discussed the YouTube video taken. An NBC producer tried to crash a private Security Conference (DEFCON 15) to get video coverage of ‘a story’ with a hidden camera. She refused to pick up a Press badge four times: she probably thought she’d do better being undercover. I think she was mistaken! There’s a good write up here. An interesting case where it is shown that the ‘news’ isn’t always spooned out by the media but sometimes IS the media and how they behave. Hurrah for YouTube… the real peoples’ media!
