Not a new practice, but one that has a history.  For instance consider
the following first sentence from a book about the effects of the
practice of "provid[ing] police with tips and information":

"Someone must have been telling lies about Josef K., he knew he had done
nothing wrong but, one morning, he was arrested."

   The Trial, by Franz Kafka
