I think CBS news got it wrong when they labeled gunwalking an investigative tactic

Gunwalking is a controversial investigative tactic in which police allow suspects to traffic guns without stopping them in order to see where they end up.
I guess they are labeling it that because that's what DOJ is telling them it is, but was it ever used before F&F ? They make it sound like it was an existing albeit controversial tactic - when that's not the case. I don't think it was a tactic before F&F. Certainly not a proven tactic.

Could it be said of Operation Wide Reciever that guns "walked" ? They were traced - which is different.

It's semantics, but semantics is sometimes half of the debate, which is why anti-abortion folks want to be knowns as "pro-life" and the other side wants to be known as "pro-choice".

I wish someone would call them to task on exactly how they can call it a investigative tactic.
