You know how when people fuck up, and the reporters swarm in acting like a bunch of douchebags and cunts?

Well... here's what happens when you are an "undercover" reporter and you get busted!

(it's kinda long - 6mins or so, but pretty funny)

I wish it had been a group of animals (pests?) instead of computer nerds. They let her of way to easy.

They figured out she was fraud because she was the only girl there.

Dateline NBC reporter Outed at Hacker Convention

Dateline NBC undercover reporter outed

Defcon 007: Reporter gets snapped

By Saturday 04 August 2007, 11:23

A LOT OF MAKEUP can make you prettier, but it won't make you smarter. Michelle Madigan, Associate Producer for Dateline NBC found this out the hard way at Defcon. According to sources at the show, she was there to do a piece called Hackers for Hire, with the goal of showing the criminal hacker underground and possibly outing an undercover fed. As Michelle was said to have said, "People in Kansas would be very interested in what is going on at Defcon". She was busted hours before she walked in the door, the first slide before the keynote was this, and the speaker asked to notify a goon (security) if she was spotted.

The people from Defcon talked to her four times, two before the show, two on the scene, and offered her press credentials and the opportunity to officially talk to the people she wanted to talk to. Four times she declined.
Too bad. They knew when her plane took off. They knew when her plane landed. They knew when she picked up her non-press attendee pass (human in the vernacular). They followed her around. They knew when she walked into the ladies room to wire up, camera and sound. She knew that the camera was not allowed but did it anyway, and told a goon that she was doing so.

We are told she was walking around 'panning' her bag and at times holding it like a camera. In the above shot, you can see the lens on her handbag, it is the shiny spot above the two silver circles. Michelle was told that a fed would be outed in the largest room in the show, and off she went.
Dark Tangent was on the stage, and had a lengthly preamble about undercover feds and the "spot the fed" contest. A fed was 'spotted', and I brought Winn Schwartau up on stage as a 'fed'. The conversation then went to integrity and how to go undercover ethically. For those of you who don't know, Winn is not a fed.
Then there was a new contest announced, spot the undercover reporter who is violating the Defcon rules. She was offered the option of coming up on stage and getting a press badge, but instead, Michelle bolted for the door, pushing a goon out of the way.
I caught up with her when she made it out the door, and what followed was a perp walk of epic proportions. People polled in the audience overwhelmingly voted that it was not cool. There were people swarming Michelle, Defcon people estimated 150 or so, as she walked for her car, quickly at first, slowing when it became obvious that she wasn't going to get away. She didn't look happy. Awwww.

Oddly enough, Michelle Madigan would not answer questions shouted at here, ranging from "What were you thinking?" to "Can I have your badge?" I guess she now knows what it feels like to be on the others side of the 'to catch a predator' stories.
In the end, she got into her car and promptly drove into a dead end corner of the parking lot. Needless to say, there was a large crowd of people who found it very amusing when she had to back up and drive through the crowd to get out of the parking lot.
The moral of the story? Don't screw around with people who are smarter than you. I guess Dateline NBC hasn't learned this lesson. µ[/quote]

Yeah, well noone said a bunch of geeks have a great sense of humor. :D
Yeah, I kinda lost interest when they were attempting to make fun of her after she got escorted out. The reveal = nice. Aftermath = unfunny computer Haxx0RZ!

I'm sure if it hadn't been a girl, they would've been able to think of more amusing things to say.

I was just going to post that over in the Defcon thread you started in the PC section Zag.

Such sweet retribution over this slimy cunt. I truly wish some big bull-dyke would've run up behind her, grabbed her by the back of the hair and cracked her mealy mouth onto the corner of a granite curb.

You just know that Dateline was going to do some ultra negative sensationalist garbage perpetuating the same old Hollywood stereotype of hackers. Now watch this bitch attempt to spin it to make her look like she was afraid for her life or some such nonsense.

Yeah, I thought that was rather newbish of them myself, but I've seen it before, people like them don't car about cars, they would rather spend $10,000 on a custom built computer instead and continue driving a 20 year old shitbox.

The camera work on both vids in this thread are fucking atrocious. One is bouncing all over fuck and can't keep the subject in view and the other is blur-fest 2007. I guess all they know how to do is hack.
