THE GOOD CYBER NEWS, THE BAD CYBER NEWS
BY BOB FRANKEN
Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to stop and see how far we’ve come. It’s easy to take for granted the blur of technological progress that has brought us convenience at blinding speed. It is changing the way we live our lives, the ways
we shop and learn, and even the ways we relate to one another. It’s marvelous and, when you think about it, mind boggling.
This brave new world is scary. Free access to the universe comes at a huge cost: We pay for it by surrendering our privacy. As we go where no one has gone before, those who police our country and the planet are going where they have no
business, spying on our every move.
We are all too familiar with how the nation’s intelligence apparatus is now used to potentially track our every move and conversation. We can thank Edward Snowden’s release of highly classified National Security Agency records for
that startling bit of knowledge. But it’s not just the spies fighting the international bad guys who can suck up our private lives; it’s also the cops here at home.

Another Thursday dawn upcoming for me on MSNBC. Sparkling repartee at 5:15 Eastern. Well, would you believe sputtering?

Hillary and Marco are the latest to officially run for president and again on a Thursday, at a ridiculous 5:15 AM Eastern on MSNBC I'll be running off at the mouth. As usual.

I'm going to try something different Thursday early morning on MSNBC, and that is to make sense. But at 5:15 Eastern, will any viewers be able to tell?
