The forensically-proven government spying on me while I was an investigative correspondent at CBS News has much larger implications.

Read more on Attkisson v DOJ and FBI for the government computer intrusions here, including a summary of the facts and forensic evidence. I will soon be announcing next steps forward.
Here, you can read more about a recent court decision that protects the U.S. government from discovery and punishment for unlawful surveillance against U.S. citizens.
Below, watch my interview that explains why all of this has implications far beyond one journalist.
