Reporter’s Death — Were Feds Involved?

Posted on June 24, 2013

Everybody’s thinking it, I’m just saying it.

When award-winning journalist Michael Hastings was killed Tuesday in a fiery one-vehicle crash, the first question in many journalists’ mind was, what story was he working on?

Thanks to the release of an email sent hours before his death, we still don’t know the angle, but we have an idea of the topic, and we also know that Hastings considered it a big story.

KTLA was provided the email by one of the recipients, whose names were blurred out. It was sent June 17, 12:56 p.m., about 16 hours before Hastings’ death. The subject line was “FBI investigation, re: NSA.” The text reads:

“Hey (names blanked out), the Feds are interviewing my ‘close friends and associates.’ Perhaps if the authorities arrive ‘BuzzFeed GQ’, er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news-gathering practices or related journalism issues.

“Also: I’m onto a big story, and need to go off the radar for a bit.

“All the best, and hope to see you all soon.
