The usual suspects in the media twisted an Israeli journalist’s report and the politicians lapped it up.

Yesterday, BJP & a few news channels cited a report in Hebrew to claim that Amnesty has denied the list of 50k phone numbers (at the core of #PegasusProject) ⁦The Israeli reporter told @newslaundry his report NEVER CLAIMED the list wasn’t linked to NSO https://t.co/1dnUXizEtu https://www.newslaundry.com/2021/07/23/no-one-says-the-pegasus-list-is-fake-why-are-bjp-leaders-and-their-media-allies-insisting-it-is

Why won’t India’s government say clearly that it has not used Pegasus spyware against its own citizens?

Cost of putting Pegasus in phones runs into crores | India News,The Indian Express

NSO maintains that it sells its technologies solely to law enforcement and intelligence agencies of “vetted governments” for the purpose of “preventing criminal and terror acts”.

Pegasus: According to estimates based on NSO’s proposal in 2016, $500,000 installation fee, followed by $650,000 to spy on 10 iPhones or Android users; $500,000 for five BlackBerry users; or $300,000 for five Symbian users. https://t.co/y6QazglVZC @IndianExpress https://indianexpress.com/article/india/project-pegasus-cost-of-putting-pegasus-in-phones-runs-into-crores-7414323/

This is how much of public money govt spent on snooping on opp leaders, own ministers, journos, woman who complained of sexual harassment by a CJI, & presumably 100s of others. What spin will govt put on this spend of taxpayers money? #PegasusGate https://t.co/uCaZHRv4cD https://indianexpress.com/article/india/project-pegasus-cost-of-putting-pegasus-in-phones-runs-into-crores-7414323/
