Stopping it from happening might be a bit safer than potentially finding out it is happening. The informative nature of Huang's hack is still useful, but yeah, journalists in fear of their lives may want to simply grab a Faraday wallet or bag that would cover the phone.
Yes, forbid there ever be a coup or revolution when the power is already corrupt. Never mind that in Turkey, this is essentially an institutionalized check and balance. Hope it turns out that way this time, too. But that's their mechanism. Seems to work at least as well as any other country's...
Facebook sucks. It doesn't make the vague assertion that you want to re-word for Geller any more correct. It doesn't matter where one's politics reside (except for the stance on what constitutes government-protected speech), FB shuts articles and accounts down, and almost arbitrarily, sometime outright unfairly silencing one party and not another who posted the same "objectionable" content. This doesn't make it the government's problem.
What is really most entertaining for me, though, is the phenomenon of people "re-stating" the position of some thought-leader in attempt to make it less idiotic. In this case it's an absolute hoot because it was originally filed in legalese. I heartily suggest anyone in this position find a new icon, when said icon iz doin it rong.
