We already knew Obama and his thugs were out of control. This is just one more example. And don’t think this is limited to Rosen and Fox. The search warrant accuses Rosen of “conspiring” with someone to get information. In other words, he was talking to sources to get information, which is exactly what reporters are supposed to do. So now a reporter doing his job is a crime? And those silly ‘journalists’ thought Obama would spare them for his gestapos. Fox is reporting, btw, that two reporters and a producer have been tracked by the DOJ.
Before the Justice Department was secretly obtaining phone records of Associated Press reporters, the Obama administration was investigating a Fox News journalist.
The Washington Post reported Sunday evening that the federal authorities went to great lengths to investigate how James Rosen, the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News, was able to report on classified intelligence on North Korea in 2009.
According to the Post, the Justice Department went further in investigating Rosen than they did with AP reporters. They obtained his security badge access records at the State Department, looked at records of his calls with a specific State Department adviser and even went through his personal e-mails.
Investigators, according to the Washington Post, suspected that Rosen was given classified information by a State Department adviser named Stephen Jin-Woo Kim.
“Search warrants like these have a severe chilling effect on the free flow of important information to the public,” First Amendment lawyer Charles Tobin told the Washington Post. “That’s a very dangerous road to go down.”
Weasel Zippers captured some of the MSM’s initial reaction to this on Twitter, and it’s not good for the Dumb Bastard:
