What if I told you cable TV news and the commercial advertisement industry could collaborate and download eavesdropping software on your smartphone, listen to your private conversations, then select a dumb commercial from their library of paid advertisement clients [effectively deemed the monopoly list], and while targeting your specific cable TV box inside your home, run commercials that mimic words and mannerisms from the private conversations you had. Imagine if someone brought a privacy invasion case like that to America’s judicial system. I wonder what the response might be. Incidentally, might one be surprised if the Fourth Estate and the Fourth Amendment‘s objectives were in complete opposition of each other?
