Liberal bias aside, journalists hate telling a one-sided story, so the Red Herring needed a source sympathetic to Hewlett-Packard's phone-record-snooping chairwoman, Patricia Dunn. Someone who's done their own social engineering. Someone hardcore. And writer Brian Caulfield found one: Kevin Mitnick.
