The film's technical advisor, Larry Cox, is a former National Security Agency official.
Congressman Phillip Hammersley:

Daniel Zavits's camcorder is described as a motion-activated digital video camera by the NSA, yet a close-up of it in the previous scene shows the Hi8 logo. In 1998, only analog signals could be recorded on Hi8 tapes; Digital8 was not introduced until the following year. So it is not a digital video camera.
The CNN journalist is a fictitious character.
