I think you'd probably be in a minority, but I could be wrong.
Here's a perfect example. Let's say it comes out that Google is using your phone to track you everywhere you go so it has a history of where you have been and how long you have been there. How upset are you? Now, say it comes out that the feds are using your phone to track you the exact same way. Which of these privacy stories makes you more upset/concerned?
