I mentioned the other day that the Justice Department's secretive snooping on AP reporters was not just a personal violation of privacy, but in fact a threat to their ability to do their jobs and a threat to everyone's ability to report on the Obama administration.
Gary Pruitt, AP's CEO confirmed on CBS Face the Nation Sunday that in fact, his organization is already finding government sources are more reluctant to talk to them now because of what happened.

Worship the Fraud president and suffer the consequences!
AP’s “sources” are members of the Obama administration. AP simply transcribes what those administration operatives tell them.
So, of course, it’s monitored by the White House.
Everyone who has ever said anything against Obama either on the internet or over the phone is now being monitored by the Federal government. Don’t kid yourselves.
I have doubts that AP was the only ‘news’ organization that was ‘scrutinized’.
Maybe some enterprising Congressperson might ask that in one of the hearings.
Welcome to “the new normal,” AP-Holes.
Does that include me.
I HATE OBAMA WITH A HATE NO ONE CAN EVER IMAGINE!
Hey, AP, why don’t you regain the historical position of the press of being a check on government,
instead of its advocate?
APs sources are members of the Obama administration. AP simply transcribes what those administration operatives tell them.

Exactly. Associated Propagandists with a bad whine here.
Good, they helped put him in office..they should suffer the consequences
Can some savvy freeper post that shot of John McClean welcoming his pal to the party?
Actually, I don’t have a problem with it. I’d rather not have people in the government leaking crap - it has undercut the hell out of Republican presidents in the past.
Maybe we make them consent to be monitored at any time, in any way, if they want to keep their job.
Looks like all that fluffing the media did for Obama didn’t pay off after all.
Wonder if they think getting to go to the parties was worth it?.
Right, that’s why THE GOVERNMENT broke the story! “We are watching you, so if you are a whistle-blower, we will know and destroy you.” And it’s working. These guys should read more spy novels and use throw away phones.
I hope they sweat through the nights, terrified that every siren is headed for their door. I hope ever click on their telephone frightens them. I hope they puddle their chair every time they write a story about The Illegally-Elected Kenyan. They deserve it.
“AP boss: Our sources now fear they will be monitored by the government”
Fascist intimidation works.
Dear AP Boss:
Welcome to the Party, pal.
We’ve been saying since this started (with the media worshiping Obama) that eventually it would be turned on them. I guess they didn’t believe it. Now they need to look at the lives of reporters in Russia to see how they will be treated in the very near future. Any step out of line will result in them disappearing.
