FBI boss: Never mind Russia and social media, China ransacks US biz for blueprints, secrets at 'surprisingly' huge scale

Russian hacking caught the attention of the new media so they're still the very bad lads who possibly impacted an election. China hasn't really been brought up yet in the mainstream by comparison. Election interference is an issue in the US and a currently a big one do to.... politics. China's hacking won't get any serous news unless they somehow get the attention of the Congress which is more self focused on politics than anything else it would seem. Takeaway: China's spying won't sell newspapers but Russian hacking will for the foreseeable future even though it's a bigger operation and potentially more damaging than tampering with an election.
