The Hand That Feeds is an international news feed that appears to actually fulfil its obligations as the Fourth Estate. One pedestrian in WATI City comments that "If the Syndicate can't figure out what's causing the Static, I'm sure the Hand That Feeds will. They're always on top of these things."
Its editor is Martin, and its star reporter is "Jericho": Reza Temiz's nom de plume. While Reza would seem to work full-time for the news feed, like all news services they have their fair share of freelance work. When Reza asks Zoë to pick up the package from JIVA for him, he offers to pay her a courier's fee.
