Mythbusters RFID Hacking Episode Canned by Elite Bankers

Host Adam Savage of Mythbusters tells how Visa, Mastercard, and Discover had the Discovery Channel put the kibosh on an episode that would have revealed just how “trackable and hackable” the RFID chips found in many credit cards are. It’s a telling example of how corporate advertisers serve as the gatekeepers of mainstream media/entertainment.

Later Adam came out and retracted his statements and said the decision had nothing to do with Discovery Channel.
