    Govt obtains wide AP phone records in probe

    Govt obtains wide AP phone records in probe
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press in what the news cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.

    The records obtained by the Justice Department listed incoming and outgoing calls, and the duration of each call, for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP.

    In all, the government seized those records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown but more than 100 journalists work in the offices whose phone records were targeted on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.
    Alright, this getting downright scary. The IRS, the Feds, the cover-up of Benghazi......what in the hell is going on?

    I fail to see what that has to do with the OP.

    Boo hoo the press is subject to the same intrusions as everybody else because they have decided that they would rather talk about a Kardashian divorce to sell soap to finance their bloated paychecks than actually earn their claim to be the 4th pillar of democracy.

    I know what you mean, except for the Benghazi thing. Overstepping their bounds as they have been for years.

    Oh hey an Obama cult member chirping in defending Fascism. I have never seen that before on these forums

    From the article:

    The Associated Press in what the news cooperative's top executive called a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into how news organizations gather the news.
    We get it. You're cool with this because the Obama Administration did it.
