Wasn’t Holder going to quit anyway? Obama is in big trouble, and then this comes out.

“Look at Holder! Look at Holder!”

Are the Democrats really that sneaky? Yep.

We regard this action by the Department of Justice as a serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and report the news.

Gary Pruitt's new to the world of Government thugs - he probably thought if he was accepted as a liberal elite, he would get a pass... and they wouldn't come after him or his organization... 'They came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew..." so I'll help Gary Pruitt ...

First, if you use the words "constitutional rights' you will be branded as a potential domestic terrorist. Yes, I'm telling you the truth. Homeland Security has that as one of their 'buzz phrases'... you could be pulled into Janet's web...

Also be careful Gary Pruitt - if liberal elites don't like the words you use, you'll have the IRS to deal with... in addition to your file at Homeland Security... you could be on an enemies list already...

Interesting point you bring up.

Vince Flynn does seem to publish before the fact—I’ve noticed this too.

Mitch Rapp is fiction, even if mythical, unfortunately, with the military playing defense even at home.

Have you noticed that the debate between the WH and media is just the talking points? Yeah they are finally doing their job, asking really tough questions on the talking points, which happens to have nothing to do with the brutal deaths of four Americans or the culpability of the administration, in those deaths. It is definitely a sham.

Agreed. This whole story makes zero sense. Am I to understand that the government reached out to let the ap know that had illegally gained phone records? Really?
What would prompt them to do that?

The response by the ap was written by a 5th grader. Jeez, I know middle school kids who can write far better than this letter.

This whole story is illogical and potentially yet another silly diversion. Somebody tell me what I’m missing.

What you missed: An open/pubblic warning to the rest of the media. Comply or be audited. But The Limbaugh Rule applies. They overreached. Arrogance at it’s finest.

They think they can act with immunity now.

What is so astonishing is how blatant some of the media (read fifth column enemy of America) are in trying to divide the nation in order to divert the truth into the lie little barry absatrd punk foists. Look at MSNBC, look at the blatant tingle from Chrissy Matthews, look at the ABC mish mash of reporting, one highlighting the issues the next poo pooing the relevance of the criminality.

[What are you talking about?]

This gets a little complicated.

Nachum had trouble posting the article because it came from a .pdf. (Note: the post has now been repaired, “So what difference does it make? :)

Hot Tobasco made a snide remark about the formatting.

Knowing how hard it is to cut and paste a .pdf file, I suggested to HT that s/he try it.

You posted about pasting the .pdf to the desktop to make it easier.

All these posts were to me when they really should have been to nachum. That’s where my post #112 came from.

Ok, so they send a letter to let ‘em know the tapped phones, even though it is not legal, and hope the ap just rolls with it? I guess considering the state of our media, anything is possible.

It still doesn’t add up, for me. Maybe it’s a message to the whistleblowers by proxy. To let them know they are being tapped?

What a sick and demented bunch of freaks we have running the country. Just so ridiculous.

I think that was from the Ulsterman Report but it's probably banned here on FR as it is mostly speculation and outright fiction. Good reading but not necessarily based in reality.

Anyone wonder just why ALL of these scandals are coming out in the last 2 weeks?

A total purge of bad news for Obama, so that the media can't keep it's head on straight on WHAT to report.

Perhaps to get ahead of the curve so that by the time investigations are in progress they can claim "old news".

Oh, and republicans fault too, because they don't want to get America back to work creating jobs and all.

Most importantly, Obama is NOT to blame for anything.

The Associated press is a non-profit news cooperative serving 1,700 newspapers 5,000 television and radio outlets in the U.S. All its U.S. subscribers are legally members of the co-op. This encompasses virtually every daily newspaper and broadcaster in America. So when Eric Holder and Obama decided to mess with the AP they—perhaps unwittingly—have messed with the entire U.S. news industry. These Chicago punks think they have absolute power. They are utter fools.
