Russian Students Prank Earns 16 Months in Jail – The Lede – Breaking News – New York Times Blog

Seems that the pranksters that we vote for are allowed to hoax us, because they can, and are given a type of social immunity built into the language of “politics” (or its excuse “politics”). And…the guy who falls for it (G. Gorden Liddy who was tricked into recovering a “call girl” photo in the Watergate, where later the Lewinsky family lived) seems to be punished the most for it. Chapstick walkie-talkie mikes come to mind, on exhibit at the National Archives on tour I think. My soapbox or yours?
