People with experience in intelligence gathering are probably quite good at investigative journalism. Sounds like an awesome civilian job for them.

makes sense really. They are one of the few news groups that still do investigative reporting instead of reading their Twitter feed for stories.

Conservatives: "We're always persecuted for our beliefs! What about free speech and privacy?" Also Conservatives: "Awesome, Liberals are being persecuted for their beliefs! They don't need free speech or privacy." You have to live by your principles. I get that PV has brought some crazy shit to light, but this is getting creepy as hell.
