NPR Cyber-Attack Story Product Placement?

This morning NPR was talking about yesterday’s big cyber-attack, and the host asked an expert if this was a group effort, or could it be one guy in his Jockey underwear, and I thought: “Hey! Why blame Jockey? Why not Hanes, or Fruit of the Loom? Why not Crisp, or Calvin Klein? I happen to know most hackers rely on Tommy Hilfiger Boxer Briefs to support them in their work!”

Then I realized: this must be product placement! Whenever there’s a story about a blogger or a hacker, or someone addicted to online pornography, NPR probably gets paid to say they were sitting in their basement or studio apartment in their Jockey brand underwear! Only people smart enough to perpetrate massive cyber-attacks, underemployed enough to write blogs, or perverted enough to be addicted to online porn wear Jockey brand underwear!
