Another Chilling Leak Investigation
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD
Published: May 21, 2013
With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.
Note, that is by the Editorial Board, not some journalist or report or Opinion writer. Obama, you just lost one of your best boot-lickers. Who's next, MSNBC?Rest In Peace America

The Clintons made a similar mistake with the firings in the White House Travel Office. The WHTO made the travel arrangements for the press that accompanied POTUS, and they had longstanding professional relationships, not just with the on-air personalities, but their producers, who were outraged at the treatment that their friends were being subjected to. That was the low point of Clinton's first term in terms of media relations, and it wasn't until the Democrats were at risk of losing the congress that the media came back to them.
This doesn't mean that the entire media will turn on Obama, or that those who do will stay angry (although given the vindictiveness that Obama brings to dissenters, I suspect that he's going to make the mistake of antagonizing them further, rather than trying to make nice), but it is a window of opportunity for conservatives to hammer the message that Obama and his administration have a totalitarian impulse that goes far beyond anything seen in a Republican administration.

In the end it doesn't matter. The MSM when push comes to shove will still walk lock step with this administration and the rest of the fascist party.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.
