Posted on 05/14/2013 9:54:41 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Reporters across The Associated Press are outraged over the Justice Departments sweeping seizure of staff phone records - and they say such an intrusion could chill their relationships with confidential sources.
In conversations with POLITICO on Tuesday, several AP staffers in Washington, D.C., described feelings of anger and frustration with the DOJ and with the Obama administration in general.

Ha, ha, the AP has fleas.
Idiots! Let it chill your cozy relationships with Obama and his administration! Stop kissing and protecting his butt, ram something up it!
When The Fascist was shredding the 2nd Amendment, they didn’t seem to mind too much. But now that the 1st Amendment is under attack [GASP!] it’s, “To the barricades!”
If AP had a lick of sense, and a hint of a backbone, they’d start reporting honestly about this administration.
Alas, they’ll whimper a bit and still kiss his ass.
No wound is so deep as one that comes from a “friend”. They all deserve each other and our country deserves neither.
Who’s Polutico trying to kid? AP is already bent over, hands on ankles, waiting for its next Obama ‘exclusive’.
Isn’t the message from DOJ clear: Anyone who talks to the press can be found. It may not be legal, but so what, we are the law. Now that we have dried up your sources AP, just write about what we tell you to write about.
OK, AP.... are you really angry, as in “enraged?”
Then, here’s how you act on that rage and help prevent it from happening again to yourselves and others. From this day forward, you can get the best form of justice by simply DOING YOUR JOB AND REPORTING FULLY AND HONESTLY WITHOUT BIAS !!
AP fed the crocodile, hoping it would eat them last. But the beast is hungry!
What whistleblower in his right mind will now talk to ANY media outlet?
It’s only as the 1st Amendment applies to THEM. They don’t mind if the rest of us are told to shut up and go to the back of the bus.
The AP might accidentally discover that they are a (gasp!) news organization.
Who knows!? Maybe they’ll investigate Der Fuhrer 0bambi!
Nah. That would be expecting too much, overcoming that much cognitive dissonance.
How does it feel, AP?
Like a rolling stone . . . a complete unknown . . . no direction home!
” whimper a bit and still kiss his ass.”
Of course. The “cause” is more important than their personal freedom and comfort.
The feds are a mad dog that bites the hand that feeds.
But, they went on to say that it would NOT chill their adoration of their messiah: the One, King Zero, Obamugabe!
the interesting thing is that when you read the comments in the comments section of the AP article — the people there are 100% unsympathetic with the AP because the AP has been such flacks for the Obama administration. They basically think the AP has been such low scum that they totally got what was coming to them. The surprise is that the AP didn’t see it coming.
>> The AP employees interviewed by POLITICO did not want to be identified because, according to several sources, at least some journalists have been asked not to speak to the press.
Yeah, I guess if *anyone* would know what a nest of untrustworthy vipers “the press” is... it would be an employee of (A)ssociated (P)ress! ROFLMAO
These fools think they are in the pond with the crocodile as as equals because their political ideology is the same.
Nothing will come of this as the media long ago sold their collective souls to the devil and they did so on the cheap. They will huff and puff but not enough to hurt their king.
