    It seems, a year ago, this was a crime, and hey - now, it's "freedom of the press" - by the way: here is what I posted on Assange:



    Here are the right wing responses:















    So if Assange was guilty, why isn't Rosen? Citizenship?
    Has Rosen been charged with a crime? If so, what classified information has he reported?

    Also, were you this freaked out when Mary McCarty leaked classified info to the NYT several years ago? Or, was that ok, since Bush was president?

    Shhhhhhhhhh, he does not know that until Rosen is actually charged, these allegations remain just that.

    CHUCK TODD: So they want to criminalize journalism. And that's what it's coming down, I mean, if you end up essentially criminalizing journalism or when it comes to reporting on the federal government, particularly on national security, and the only place they can, they think they technically can do that is on the issues of national security. What it's going to do is the impact that we’ve heard, we heard the AP counsel say this over the weekend. It is going to make whistleblowers, and people that might leak, regular sources. You know, I’ve had different conversations with people over the last week who are sitting there not quite comfortable having certain conversations on the phone. I mean, it just completely, and maybe that's the intent. I can't think of any other intent of why they’re going about this in such a broad harassing sort of way.

    Did a random forum search on "Mary McCarthy"

    Here are the threads which have any relevance to her:

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/archiv...-his-word.html

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/archiv...d-scandal.html

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/archiv...democrats.html

    --------------------------------------

    So in a forum with hundreds of threads and thousands of posts a day, Mary McCarthy, which you seem to think is similar in size to this, only got about.... 3 total threads.... none of which I participated in.... as the majority were made before I even joined the forum. Do you lack common sense or just trying out red herrings to see which one fits?

    longtime abc chief white house correspondent recently moved to cnn jake tapper:

    JAKE TAPPER: In "The Politics Lead," a FOX News reporter is caught in the middle of what's being sarcastically called a conspiracy to commit journalism. Not only did the Justice Department label James Rosen a conspirator for soliciting information from a State Department contractor for a story, but FOX News is now reporting that the Department of Justice even seized the phone records of Rosen's parents and of at least five other phone lines associated with FOX News.

    Earlier this week, "The Washington Post" reported that the FBI sought and received a warrant to search Rosen's e-mail back in 2010 to find the source of a leak. Keep in mind, there's no allegation that James Rosen bribed, threatened, coerced anyone to get the information, which is what journalists do. We try to get information, especially information that the government doesn't want us to share with you.

    In an opinion piece, "The New York Times", which is, of course, very supportive of President Obama, the editorial page accused the Obama administration of going overboard to find and muzzle insiders in the government, saying, quote, "Obama administration officials often talk about the balance between protecting secrets and protecting the constitutional rights of a free press. Accusing a reporter of being a conspirator, on top of other zealots and secretive investigations, shows a heavy tilt toward secrecy and insufficient concern about a free press," unquote.

    Now, I'm a journalist. Obviously I have a bias here. But even if you side with this president over those of us in the media who challenge him in his administration, it is important to remember the precedent these actions set going forward, perhaps when it's not your guy in the White House.

    the doj, in addition, in order to strengthen its subpoena, actually labeled the veteran fox news reporter a flight risk

    we're far past the point of return, it appears

    it's only gonna get worse

    the white house and its defenders react with anger, ad hominem and hate

    so much for peace and love

    seeya at the party, progressives

    Re: Obama administration spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen: Report [W:85]

    wapo sunday:

    Court documents in the Kim case reveal how deeply investigators explored the private communications of a working journalist — and raise the question of how often journalists have been investigated as closely as Rosen was in 2010. The case also raises new concerns among critics of government secrecy about the possible stifling effect of these investigations on a critical element of press freedom: the exchange of information between reporters and their sources.

    “Search warrants like these have a severe chilling effect on the free flow of important information to the public,” said First Amendment lawyer Charles Tobin, who has represented the Associated Press, but not in the current case. “That’s a very dangerous road to go down.”
