I think the Liberal Media are finally starting to understand that the Liberal Messiah is not their friend. He simply sees them as Useful Idiots.

What's happened is the more intelligent members of the press now have a smidgen of doubt... it'll be a while before they realize they've been used - and used badly.

It would be very historic if Obama would be the first impeached and convicted president in history, he is truly deserving of it.

The White House has no knowledge whatsoever.

They don't seem to know much about anything that they are responsible for, do they?

"Rules published by the Justice Department require that subpoenas of records of news organizations must be personally approved by the attorney general"

But there were no subpoenas....they just took them.

But Obama said that this is wrong, it won’t be tolerated, and that he won’t rest until he gets to the bottom of this.

BO, the Mooch, jarrett and Holder were all raised that this was the way to treat your political opponents-like commie countries do. They, no doubt, have stratergerized about it and had many meetings on how to take down their enemies which also happen to be fellow Americans. This is the most anti-American bunch in history. Also, someone needs to tell Chris Matthews that the 2 smartest people in politics sure are stupid because they never know anything about anything (hill and BO). Someone will get tired of them constantly claiming ignorance eventually.

The media has covered for and lied and had their eyes shut for so long they may not even be able to ‘journalize’ anymore. This missile hits them squarely, so I suspect they will awaken.

We have no knowledge of any wrong doing, ” White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement".

Carney elaborated further and stated, "The CIA, FBI, DOJ and the IRS are likely the perpetrators of these outrageous acts, so please address your questions to those institutions".

Any more questions?

“At first glance, it looks like the Justice Dept was targeting reporters, but the main purpose was to find out who was talking to reporters.”

I believe that the leak came from Congess. Now, there have been a lot of leaks that have never been investigated, so why this one? Maybe Obama or Holder think a Republican or an aide to one did it and is hoping to find that.

Apparently those in the WH feel it’s better to be thought of as completely incompetent rather than malevolent. Maybe they’re right, but you would think there’s only so much incompetence that can be feigned.

It may just be true, jackass ears may not have known simply because he is involved in nothing except setting each of his ministers on a destroy the US mission. He is never there for example, he flys around on our air borne charriot, attends parties, sleeps till noon, avoids any involvement with economic advisors and spends time with the limosine liberals he is most happy with. Kind of like a Sultan of the Potomac.

Unfortunately for Odumbell, if the press cares to turn on him, they will point out his having set up a moat of deniablity but the captain is in charge of the ship.

I notice wonderkin Carney sent out this press release probably on the dime of his excellency’s PR team in DC. I don’t think wonderkin was in NYC when it was drafted and Barry Soetoro (AKA BS), was seeking handouts from the gullable in NYC last evening by hop knobing with the socialite dregs of our society. He, his advisors, his monied friends, and the whole dummocrat party should rot in hell.

So, apparently the record seizure was in response to a leak.

Perhaps, they need to check out the WH since there are officials there that have siblings in high places in the media.

Loyalty. Or at least fear driven compliance.

Failing that, a chilling effect on anyone who would dare provide the media with any truth.

----What are they looking for?----

The stated purpose was telephone evidence of a leak regarding a terror plot in Yemen in March 2012.

They are actually looking to intimidate the AP

Justice Department Expands Hunt for Data on Cellphones
http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/26/justice-department-expands-hunt-for-data-on-cellphones/

Obama’s NSA eavesdropping goes beyond that of Bush... after campaigning on the promise of: “ No warrantless wiretaps if you elect me!”
http://news.cnet.com/8301-10784_3-9845595-7.html

headlines read: “NSA Exceeds Legal Limits In Eavesdropping Program” , “ U.S. phone intercepts go beyond legal limits” , and “NSA Found Improperly Spying on Americans”.

As the others have said, they could be looking for leakers, whistle blowers or reporters anonymous sources.

What the Justice Dept. did is a serious breach of the law in that it was not narrowly limited to a specific action okayed by a judge for a warrant.

DOJ could and probably did get many different sources for AP reporters.

Good point...This shows they'll use any means to stop the flow of information from the Executive Branch on their illegal and/or unethical acts.

Like you say, it's hard to imagine the lengths they go to with an unfriendly news source because AP has been good to them as a rule.

White House: 'No knowledge' of AP phone record seizure

This is risible to the point of insanity, plain and simple insanity. Do they really think we aren't aware that "White House says..."
or "Obama says..." is literally never followed by any statement that is true, either here or in the other eight dimensions?

Pull the other one, "White House."
