Terrorism Task Force Shows Up At Journalist’s Home Over Google Searches About ‘Pressure Cookers’ And ‘Backpacks’
AUG. 1, 2013
Freelance journalist Michele Catalano, a former music contributor at Forbes, received a friendly visit at her Long Island home from six agents from a joint terrorism task force on Wednesday morning.
In March Google reported that the FBI monitors the Web for potential terrorist activity, although the FBI told Adrien Chen of Gawker that the “FBI had no part in this law enforcement action.”
The FBI told to the Guardian that Catalano was “visited by Nassau County police department … They were working in conjunction with Suffolk County police department.”
