    Yes, if there was any justice that would be the case, and the cause goes all the way back to Mark Rich and the final days of the Clinton administration. When that goes through without much protest, and no red flags are raised, then the boldness increases until we have what we see here.

    Good afternoon, Grant.

    With all the delaying tactics being used; misleading and/or untrue statements; and other attempts to divert attention, what is it going to take? If not now, the question becomes when?

    AP CEO Says Government Sources Won't Talk After Justice Department Probe

    The CEO of the Associated Press told an audience Wednesday that the Department of Justice has succeeded in muzzling government employees from talking to AP reporters in the weeks since the seizure of AP phone records was revealed.

    “What I learned from our journalists should alarm everyone in this room and I think should alarm everyone in this country. The actions of the DOJ against AP are already having an impact beyond the specifics of this particular case[/B],” AP CEO Gary Pruitt told an audience at the National Press Club. [B]“Some of our longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about talking to us, even about stories that aren’t about national security. In some cases, government employees that we once checked in with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone, and some are reluctant to meet in person.”

    After it was made public that the Justice Department took AP Washington bureau phone records as part of the Obama administration’s aggressive anti-leak operation, Pruitt said the fear among potential sources has spread to reporters from other outlets.

    “I can tell you that this chilling effect is not just at AP, it’s happening at other news organizations as well,” he said. “Journalists from other news organizations have personally told me it has intimidated sources from speaking to them.”

    Pruitt said he believes government officials are happy to see the process of newsgathering become more difficult in Washington.

    The government may love this. I suspect that they do,” he said. “But beware the government that loves secrecy too much.”

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

    this afternoon:

    Associated Press’ president Gary Pruitt on Wednesday slammed the Department of Justice for acting as “judge, jury and executioner” in the seizure of the news organization’s phone records and he said some of the wire service’s longtime sources have clammed up in fear.

    Pruitt said the department broke its own rules with the seizure, which he said was too broad, and by failing to give the AP notice of the subpoena. Pruitt questioned the DoJ’s actions concerning the subpoena — had the DoJ come to the news organization in advance, “we could have helped them narrow the scope of the subpoena” or a court could have decided, he said.

    “There was never that opportunity,” Pruitt said during a speech at the National Press Club in D.C. “Instead the DoJ acted as judge, jury and executioner in private, in secret.”

    Eric Holder. Coincidentally a black man! It just keeps getting better and we wind them up like a spring and they gush their racist hate!

    And the farther south you go, the tighter they wind!

    I believe, following a vacation, he's back on Fox News.
