In something of an expansion of the recent scandal involving the AP, the Obama administration has now gone after Fox News Channel's James Rosen.
From Yahoo! News:
The Justice Department spied extensively on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, collecting his telephone records, tracking his movements in and out of the State Department and seizing two days of Rosen’s personal emails, the Washington Post reported on Monday.
In a chilling move sure to rile defenders of civil liberties, an FBI agent also accused Rosen of breaking anti-espionage law with behavior that—as described in the agent's own affidavit—falls well inside the bounds of traditional news reporting.
Perhaps some who have a deep, visceral distaste for FNC will consider this action just peachy-keen. But most defenders of the First Amendment will not.
