Per wiki:

"Strategic communication management could be defined as the systematic planning and realization of information flow, communication, media development and image care in a long-term horizon. It conveys deliberate message(s) through the most suitable media to the designated audience(s) at the appropriate time to contribute to and achieve the desired long-term effect. Communication management is process creation. It has to bring three factors into balance: the message(s), the media channel(s) and the audience(s)."

Obama DOJ formally accuses journalist in leak case of committing crimes
Guardian UK ^

Posted on Monday, May 20, 2013 8:54:21 AM by Perdogg

It is now well known that the Obama justice department has prosecuted more government leakers under the 1917 Espionage Act than all prior administrations combined - in fact, double the number of all such prior prosecutions. But as last week’s controversy over the DOJ’s pursuit of the phone records of AP reporters illustrated, this obsessive fixation in defense of secrecy also targets, and severely damages, journalists specifically and the newsgathering process in general.

(Excerpt) Read more at guardian.co.uk ...


I agree with Buckeye Texan’s comment on this thread (below) and hope journalists are up in arms and start doing their job. Not holding my breath but maybe this is FINALLY enough to light a fire under them.

To: SE Mom
This is chilling. The FBI tracked Rosen’s movements in and out of the State Dept., traced the timing of his phone calls, and read two days’ worth of all his email and every email between him and Kim.

Every journalist should understand the implications of this. And every journolister should be quaking in their baby-seal leather jackboots.

just the press being presstitutes. In the attitude of being little, and to keep the truth from being told. That or fear of trains for themselves and their families. Conservatives do not fear, the left / liberals / progressives forgot what FDR said. They fear.

Megyn Kelly just doing a story on James Rosen and now, a second Fox reporter, William LaJeunesse, have been tracked by the DOJ saying that they participated in “criminal activity” by soliciting information from the state dept. The DOJ did an end run around the law, using a small portion of the law that says the DOJ can do this to anyone if the security of the nation is at risk. My Lord....

The One who was going to stop the oceans from rising; the One who said

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” - Barack Obama, 2007, as quoted by Patrick Gaspard;

knows nothin' 'bout nothin'.

Low level employees.
It’s too soon to make snap judgements about something that happened a long time ago.
Conspiracy theories.
I know nothing.
Progressive groups were scrutinized just as thoroughly. Even more.
Benghazi? Yesterday’s news. Try and keep up.
You caught me! We orchestrated all of this just to upset teabaggers. (rolls eyes; presstitutes laugh)
Legitimate/legal search warrant.
This is how it has always been done.
Path to citizenship.
Bush’s fault.
