John McAfee, candidate for the Libertarian nomination for president and former producer of McAfee antivirus software, was covered by CNBC, CNN, BBC, Fox News, Fortune, Drudge Report, ABC World News Tonight and others for his speaking out against the FBI’s demand for a back door into Apple’s iPhone in order go after the San Bernadino shooters.

McAfee did 14 interviews on Friday, February 19 after his column appeared in Business Insider the previous day, entitled “JOHN MCAFEE: I’ll decrypt the San Bernardino phone free of charge so Apple doesn’t need to place a back door on its product.”

The FBI has not taken up McAfee on his offer and continues to demand that Apple write software to crack the phone on its behalf instead.
