Bad redaction in BALCO case

    The U.S. government released a redacted version of their court filing in the Balco grand jury leak case. Problem is, all it takes is a simple cut-and-paste job to find the text behind the black lines.


    NOTE: The redacted portions contain quite interesting e-mail exchanges between Conte and Fainaru-Wada and reveal that Conte himself was the source for at least one of the stories.

    I haven't followed the case as much as some, so it's hard for me to tell if any of this is groundbreaking stuff or old news.

    This whole case gets better by the day.

    And, as was mentioned in the book, I'm not sure there's an individual on the planet who loves to talk more than Victor Conte.
  3. It was a mistake, one we regret. Wink. Wink.

    Seems like subterfuge to me. Making a mistake (oops!) is just another method in the art of leaking, and Victor Conte is the easiest guy to try and pin this on because of his propensity to talk too much.
