    the new civil rights movement?

    LOL!

    that'd be like the prof linking to breitbart

    it's a question of self respect

    The White House did, though, ask Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to introduce a media shield bill in the Senate, which would protect journalists from being forced to reveal sources. But the version that passed the Judiciary Committee in 2009 included exemptions for national security, so might not have protected the AP in the leak case now under investigation.

    eric holder's doj, with a dismissive wave of its regal wrist, simply exempts itself

    ap prez pruitt: "their rules require them to come to us first, but instead of trying to work with the ap the justice dept claimed an exception that informing the news organization would have posed a substantial threat to their investigation"

    the result: a chilling stifling of news and information

    The similar Senate measure would shield reporters from being compelled to disclose their sources, except in limited cases, such as when the evidence would help prevent an act of terrorism or when there is "significant and articulable harm to the national security."

    regardless of republican druthers, dems are doing it

    ask pruitt

    apparently, republicans aren't the only ones who don't appreciate the doj waiving its own rules in order to engage in this "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into the operations of a once free press

    Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in an emailed statement: "The burden is always on the government when they go after private information, especially information regarding the press or its confidential sources. ... On the face of it, I am concerned that the government may not have met that burden. I am very troubled by these allegations and want to hear the government's explanation."

    For one thing, I've seen no evidence that the Justice Dept investigators who worked on this are democrats.

    For another, there's nothing hypocritical about Leahy complaining about this when he voted for the Shield Law. There is definitely something hypocritical when Issa complains about it after having voted against the Shield Law

    Re: Inside the AP: Fear, Determination

    Sangha's sorry attempts to blame Republicans is just getting sadder. The bill in question was not opposed by the Republicans, IT WAS A REPUBLICAN BILL. The issue was that the Democrats were trying to shove sh*t down everyone's throat (again) and froze congress because they didn't want to vote on an energy bill.

    Somehow Sangha expects to make an unrelated Congressional log jam more responsible for the DOJ actions than the DOJ. In other words, it is laughably ludicrous.

    Since the DOJ seems to have a problem staying within the existing laws it's doubly foolish to blame the lack of legislation being the cause of their latest scandal.

    The publicans filibustered the bill.

    It's hilarious that you are arguing that the dems were trying to shove the bill down the publicans throats *and* claim that the publicans supported the bill And I'm still waiting for you to post evidence that the DOJ investigators who did this were dems

    False. For one, it wasn't a filibuster. Learn what that word actually means.

    Second, they didn't block that bill, they were trying to keep Reid from blocking the energy bill. The Republicans were seeking a comprehensive energy bill and the Democrats thumbed their noses and said F__ OFF rather than negotiating, as has been Harry Reid's way since he took his current position.

    It's hilarious that you are arguing that the dems were trying to shove the bill down the publicans throats
    False. I didn't say that.

    *and* claim that the publicans supported the bill And I'm still waiting for you to post evidence that the DOJ investigators who did this were dems
    Pointless given that you got that first part wrong.
