San Diego 6 News reports that Hastings had focused his latest project on Brennan, the former White House counterterrorism adviser and current CIA director. San Diego 6 News also reported on a purported email from a CIA contractor which said Brennan was behind “witch hunts of investigative journalists” and someone from the White House was targeting anyone printing material “negative to the Obama agenda.”

Dear all:

Hopefully this doesn’t get in the way of Wenner’s and Scout Willis’ — offspring of John McClane and Demi Moore — alternative country band, affectionately called Scout + Gus.

Don’t let them change you Gus!
