    Not trying to spark a debate I just thought this was funny that our mass media is using a video game in coverage to make a point about hacking. At least Bethesda might be getting free advertisement!

    I thought it was amusing but honestly getting a picture of hacking doesn't really work. It is a lot less interesting than the movies make it out to be and most games for that sake.

    They should have just used the stock footage of the back of a fat dude from New Jersey in a hoodie sitting at a computer.
