I posted about Mythbusters vs RFID a few days ago. In the interest of equal representation of stories, I wanted to post this one I saw that suggests the Mythbusters chose on their own to not pursue an RFID security episode, rather than the report they capitulated to lawyer demands.
MythBusters co-host Adam Savage is stepping back from public comments suggesting that legal counsel from several credit card companies led the Discovery Channel to pull the plug on an episode dedicated to security holes in RFID.
Where does the truth really lie? Who knows. Savage may have just come to his own erroneous conclusions or he might have been pressured to clear the air. I doubt we’ll ever really know when it comes to media and media relations and that whole public song-and-dance.
