    Do them all at the same time or else you are demonstrating just as much favoritism the other way 'round.

    But I agree. The administration likely doesn't give a rats butt about the actual spillage - they tapped AP because AP stole their thunder on timing, not because they exposed something the administration didn't want out there. They are out for political retribution.

    Ah, Chicago Politics.

    Washington Times columnist: More to the story?


    CIA source says Fox News scandal the "4th Shoe"; says it goes much deeper; says WH also sitting on "something" that has top aides terrified...says only a few in WH know that "something" -- "It's been deep sixed, like Osama bin Laden." Will there be a Fifth Shoe?!

    Given that the vast majority of people kvetching about Rosen (here at DP) are all well known and regular Fox News obsessives, I don't look for a rational or logical thread in their complaints and attempts to make Rosen out to be a criminal guilty of "espionage".

    Do you support the Obama Administration acting like the Gestapo, tracking and monitoring reporters? Yes or No please

    Clear-and-present danger test legal definition of Clear-and-present danger test. Clear-and-present danger test synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.

    Eighteen years later, the Supreme Court appeared to return to Holmes's views in Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444, 89 S. Ct. 1827, 23 L. Ed. 2d 430 (1969). In Brandenburg, the Court reversed the conviction of a Ku Klux Klan leader under a state statute, Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 2923.13, prohibiting advocacy of crime and violence as a necessary means to accomplish political reform. The Court held that a state could not "forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force … except where such advocacy is directed to producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action." Though the Court's opinion fails to mention specifically the phrase clear and present danger, many Constitutional Law scholars have seen Brandenburg as a return to the Holmes-Brandeis immediacy test first set forth in Abrams. However, the Court has not specifically addressed the clear-and-present-danger doctrine since Brandenburg, and thus it is not clear whether the Court would embrace it anew or would fashion an entirely new standard for determining whether, in certain circumstances, free expression can be punished.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    working with someone to knowingly commit a crime is conspiracy and potentially worse, knowingly publishing classified information, as Rosen may have done, could violate the law I posted earlier.

    Justice’s actions have been criticized by lawmakers and journalists across the political spectrum, including David Corn, a reporter for the liberal magazine Mother Jones.

    “If a reporter asks a source who handles classified material for info, does DOJ see that as a crime?,” Corn asked on Twitter. “The Rosen case may be more imp. than AP.”

    Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) on Friday criticized Justice’s tracking of AP phone records.

    “Casing and chilling the press by doing that type of sweep, to me, as an attorney, I said, 'Ew, that's [worrisome],' ” Cuellar said. “They should have gone to a judge.”

    Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) introduced legislation with conservative Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) last week that would require law enforcers to obtain a court order before they can procure reporters' records.

    “It needs to be targeted,” Polis told MSNBC's Chris Jansing on Monday. “They can't simply cast a broad net in a fishing expedition as it appears like they did in this case.”

    White House press secretary Jay Carney avoided comments on the Fox News case on Monday, repeatedly saying it was an ongoing investigation.

    He argued President Obama is strong ally of news organizations’ right to investigate and report, but said national security leaks could jeopardize the lives of American military and intelligence officials.

    Obama himself has made no apologies for the Justice’s sweep of AP phone records.

    He said last week the administration has struck a balance between protecting troops in the field and allowing reporters the free reign to hold the government into account.

    “Leaks related to national security can put people at risk. They can put men and women in uniform that I’ve sent into the battlefield at risk. They can put some of our intelligence officers, who are in various, dangerous situations that are easily compromised, at risk,” Obama said Thursday during a press briefing at the White House. “Part of my job is to make sure that we’re protecting what they do, while still accommodating for the need for information — or the need for the public to be informed and be able to hold my office accountable.”

    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), says the administration “has more to share” with Congress about the AP episode.

    “In terms of the Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and reporters I think, in this particular case, as long as it doesn't endanger the lives of any people, that they ought to make a special effort to be more forthcoming in why they took this very unusual step to acquire telephone numbers,” Rangel said Friday.

    Umm, he asked for the classified information to be coded.

    Okay... well that tells precisely what the court may, or may not, think if they were to consider this case.
