Henry, thanks so much for your valuable contributions to this important discussion.
Interesting article from the alleged media victim…
Associated Press (AP): Policy, discretion guide media sources probes (excerpts):
“The Justice Department’s latest effort to examine whom journalists are talking to — the secret subpoena of Associated Press phone records from April and May of last year — demonstrates how government investigators are guided more by policy and the judgments of high-ranking officials than by specific laws or, in this case, the need to satisfy an independent federal judge.”
“Attorney General Eric Holder said the story was the result of “a very serious leak, a very grave leak.” AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt called the gathering of phone records a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.”
