The Bottom Line

Can anything be done to stop our phones from spying on us?

The end of privacy: A global investigation exposes the scope and danger posed by Israeli spyware Pegasus.

Dissidents, politicians, journalists, business leaders – all have been targeted by intelligence agencies using Pegasus, Israeli spyware that can extract all data from phones without the users’ knowledge.

A global investigation called the Pegasus Project is shedding light on the scope and tactics of the hacking software.

Host Steve Clemons speaks with one of the co-authors of the project, Washington Post journalist Dana Priest, along with one of the main sponsors of the project, Amnesty International Secretary General Agnès Callamard, and John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher with Citizen Lab, which first exposed the work of Pegasus five years ago.
