    this is predictable of a corrupt Obama administration.. his real target is the only news outlet that opposes him. and they been investigating Fox since Obama took office. this is what happens when you have someone with a gangster mentality sitting as a president

    @bsking : Well you know what they say ... what goes around, comes around ... funny how Fox News was Bush's biggest cheerleader for the Patriot Act!

    I long ago resigned myself to the very real possibility that one day federal agents will come crashing through my door wherever I may be and charge me for the things I say on Politix. Never mind I have an absolutely clean record, belong to no organizations, not one, have never committed a govt unsanctioned act of violence my entire life and that I'm old. I full expect what I say on Politix to come back on me one day. I would bet that a good number of us have an active file somewhere going on because of what we say here.

    Yep. Hell I belong to the NRA, am white, Christian, and have concealed carry permits in two states, and I have bought several firearms in the last 10 years. I guran damn tee you they have a file on me haha.

    Never mind the fact that I work for the government and have had to pass numerous background checks for licensure to practice in the medical field and have not even had anything so minor as a parking ticket/speeding ticket.

    @DrNickels You sir are likely in a world of trouble at some point. But we all are. The Patriot act allow our govt to snatch you from your home, imprison you for the rest of your natural life without an attorney, being charged, a trial, anyone knowing where you're at or your family seeing or hearing from you every again. We have become without a single right in our own country. We have become the USSR

    Freedom of speech is just one more right that is facing extinction on the path our country has been on the last few years.

    neither freedom of speech, nor freedom of the press covers publishing classified information. it's classified because you haven't the right to know. if they do p0ublish it, then they should be brought up on charges of treason and face the full weight of the law.

    When news agencies obtain news, they publish it. Thats the American way, so punish the leaker not the news media. We are headed down a real slippery road with lots of curves on this one.

    @dances-weebles - Journalists are usually ok going to jail to protect their sources. This circumvents the ability to keep sources confidential. If sources can't be protected, truth will always be classified and kept secret, now with the bonus of never having the possibility of becoming public knowledge.

    @dances-weebles did you not read the article? There is no law against publishing classified info. If their were, the govt could just classify every abuse of power and effectively sensor information, similar to china. Not.that I'm surprised.you suppport this.

    How you boys and girls liking that Patriot act now? I remember when Bush was president and the far right always said "if you haven't done anything wrong then why would you fear the Patriot act?". And I remember trying to explain that under the Patriot Act you don't have to actually do anything wrong. The Patriot act allows for this kind of thing without proof one. But you rightties were all sure that if you were a "good christian" nothing bad would befall you due to the patriot act. How you like these apples? ALL government abuses power. Name one since you've been alive that didn't. Just one.

    I am shocked it was not MSNBC.That should tell you something.Those that try to hide the truth seek to destroy or discredit the truth tellers.Happens all the time.For any of you that have ever told a lie did you not try to argue the truth of the matter.

    Hold your breath and wait for the DOJ to bring charges against any club members or criminals working within DC's government. For that to happen, the people will have to do it.

    I have a secret for you bro- they all do this!

    And they are all owned by the same people. Left and Right are just control schemes, that make it easy to aggregate populations and distract us from revolting against government corruption.

    Fox is way worse than MSNBC, by far and wide.

    You keep on getting you info from Al Sharpton. The President appreciates your stated lack of intellectual curiosity .....now more than ever.

    @BossTweed Even funnier because I can't stand Al Sharpton. What I said is not an opinion, it is a fact that I just reviewed in my 300 level COMM class. I'm not the one who needs to check who I listen to.

    The thugs of Chicago have taken over the White House and are now targeting innocent Americans for prosecution. Why is it that the obama has time and resources to go after a Fox news journalist, yet didn't have the time and resources to go after the Tsaernav brothers? One supported an American agenda, the other ones didn't. I'll let you be the judge.

    Oh, and welcome to the obamalypse. It's everything you feared and much, much more.

    Freedom is not important to this Administration, only protection of the Administration and its decisions. We are no longer a free people in the USA, we are now very "Socialized"

    The fools of America can not see the truth.How sad is that?Any wonder why this country is so screwed up.Look at those that have not a clue as to what is happening.They are willing to give up their freedom in order to support yet the biggest fool of all.

    Perhaps crow should be on the menu at Fox. When congress passed the Patriot Act and Bush signed it into law, what the Obama administration is now doing became legal. Fox News was very stridently defending that act at the time, condemning those against it by calling us un-patriotic America haters. What condiments would you like with your dish of crow?

    @miketost - we let our freedom go with passage of the Patriot Act, something the GOP was behind all the way and which Bush signed into law.

    So now its Bush's fault? Not even close on this one, it was an act committed by the current administration and had nothing to with old Georgie Boy.

    @Bill2E -The fact that the Obama administration is currently acting within the law has everything to do with Dubya and the Patriot act. Does that make it okay? Of course not. What they're doing is reprehensible, but conservatives and the Patriot Act make it legal.

    At this dismal point in Obama's Presidency....No one disputes that we are under the increasingly oppressive yoke of Hate and Intolerance known as Progressivism. Duh.

    It sounds to me like the AP thing and much of this is actually legal under the Patriot act. You all are barking up the wrong tree blaming Obama for that. It was the Republican Party that passed the Patriot act and Bush who signed it.

    Remember when all you conservatives used to call us "unpatriotic" and "America Hating" for opposing the so called Patriot Act?

    Funny how you all have changed your tune.

    @NolanVoyd

    I fully understand your argument that the DOJ should be used as a weapon to silent the Press.
  • #32
    !
    @BossTweed If that is what you take my argument to be than you have serious reading comprehension issues.

    My ACTUAL point is that the DOJ should not be able to do what they did, but the reason it is legal for them to do it is because the Republicans (not Obama) passed the so called PATRIOT act, and the Republican President (BUSH, not OBAMA) signed it into law.

    And all you Republicans used to call us "unpatriotic" and "America Hating" for opposing the so called PATRIOT act.......and now you have changed your tune and are trying to blame Obama and liberals for something BUSH and Republicans did.

    @Yank Don't you think leaking classified information during war time is a serious offense? Possibly even treasonous in some cases?

    You sure did (as a group) when Bush was pres. Why the change of heart?

    The press may be a thorn in the Administration's side but that does not excuse the Administration's actions. The press is supposed to serve as a check on the Administration. Wake up, White House! It's your activity that is at the root of this situation.

    I'm not a Fox News fan....but this does sound flimsy.....maybe they have more.
    I'm just not sure speculating on speculation of possible scenarios rises to the level of aiding and abetting espionage.

    this could actually be a good thing for the American people.. because James Rosen is not some ABC or NBC bitch that's going to roll over on his back in submission to Obama's threats... Fox will dig deeper on these criminals running our government and it may force some of the low information morons who voted for Obama to actually watch foxnews and just maybe a dose of truth will wake them up .... MAYBE.

    Remember folks, Obama had a chance to throw the Patriot Act in the trash, However he keep it, Ramped it up and strengthend it for the worse.
    Now Obama and Holder are now waging war on we the people.
    Hand on people, its going to be a great ride

    I'm so tired of liberals and their Bush this and Bush that. We are five years into the obamalypse and they still can't find any other answer than Bush. The obama should have improved situations by now, but he hasn't. Maybe because Bush didn't push obama's agenda through the House. I doubt Bush ever will, since he's not a member of the House. Maybe obama should sit down with someone who is and talk rationally and maybe they can hammer out a deal.

    I despised McCain, but he did have one good line during his debates with obama. He looked obama directly in his eyes and told him, "I'm not Bush, if you wanted to run against Bush you should have ran four years ago." Nine years after Bush's last campaign, the obama is still running against Bush.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix - The Patriot Act allows this and the AP investigation. That act was a bi-partisan bill written and sponsored by the GOP and signed into law by Bush. The reason many of us continue to blame the Bush administration for so much is because they are guilty for so much. That doesn't excuse the current regime in any way, but Bush did a lot of harm to our constitutional rights.

    The journalist was party to the illegal release of confidential information. FOX has a history of treason. Remember when Geraldo revealed the location of troops?
