Plebity
July 28, 2021

In this episode, we are joined by Plebity writer Rozali Telbis to discuss the recent revelations about the spyware Pegasus—produced by Israeli company NSO Group—which is used by client governments to spy on journalists, activists, political leaders, and others.

We focus on the media coverage of Pegasus for our new segment, Media Watch.
