DOJ Objects to Website Statement on Patriot Act

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 5, 2003

The DOJ took issue with a statement on the Patriot Act posted to the ABCNews Nightline website yesterday, resulting in this press release. The following “correction” now appears on the Nightline website:

  • Correction – Yesterday, a promo for Nightline posted on the ABCNEWS homepage incorrectly read: “Imagine a nation where police can search your home without a court order or a warrant. Don’t look too far, it’s already here.” The correct copy should read: “Imagine a nation where police can search your home or medical records without your knowledge. Don’t look too far, it’s already here.
