This front page is really unfortunate. As far as we know, there are millions of calls being slurped into a database, but the data from tech companies is case-by-case, and not "mined".

This is the sort of thing that is going to make it hard for people who want to do the right thing to take public outrage seriously.

We need a way to rhetorically reward companies pushing back on overly broad requests if we want the market to prefer pushback. If we just treat Google's approach as equivalent to Verizon's, we're removing an important incentive to do the right thing.
