These so-called “journalists” in D.C. must have led very sheltered lives if they’ve never had the feds looking for their sources and/or auditing them. Or maybe because 98 percent of them drink the Obama Kool-Aid, they’ve always figured they were safe. You can’t really blame the AP for feeling like a battered spouse. Five years of kneepad reporting, 24/7 obsequious fawning to Dear Leader, and now Eric Holder kicks them down the stairs like they’re Michael Savage or somebody. -Howie Carr

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... 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.
