US Government Spies on Reporters

It turned out that the Justice Department secretly obtained 2 months of telephone records of reporters and editors for the Associated Press in the largest western press snooping exercise. Media reports confirm that the Justice Department obtained outgoing calls for the work and private phone numbers of individual reporters. Of course, AP is furious, because the government knows who was talking on twenty separate phone lines assigned to Associated Press and its journalists within 2 months a year ago. More than 100 journalists work in the targeted offices. AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt sent a letter of protest to Attorney General Eric Holder, claiming that the government sought and obtained data far beyond any investigation. AP demanded to return all the records and destroy all copies.

Gary Pruitt said he was sure there could be no possible justification for such an overboard collection of the telephone communications of the Associated Press and its reporters. Indeed, everyone understands that such move can put matters of communications with confidential sources at risk – most people talking to the media are willing to remain anonymous, and the reporters are supposed to be ready to go to jail if they need to protect these sources. And at the same time government is monitoring the phone calls? It’s outrageous.

In response, the government didn’t reveal why it wanted the records, but it was earlier said that the officials wanted to know who may have provided data contained in AP story about a foiled terror plot. The latter revealed details of a CIA operation in Yemen which stopped an al-Qaeda plot a year ago to detonate a bomb on an airplane bound for the US.

Meanwhile, CIA director confirmed that the FBI wondered if he was AP’s source for the story, which he denied. The Justice Department still hasn’t offered any explanation for the seizure, but the White House has no knowledge of its attempts other than press reports. The rules published by the Justice Department read that subpoenas of records of news organizations must be personally approved by the Attorney General.

In the comment, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) admitted that the use of subpoenas for a broad swathe of records may have a chilling effect both on journalists and whistle blowers willing to reveal government wrongdoing.

No avatarWell, if they aren't going to report on how the NSA is (treasonously)recording absolutely everything from emails to phone calls and faxes then this is what they get. They are not immune from tyranny just because they support it with propaganda. These guys are recording TRILLIONS of communications, and this is according to William Binney who WORKED FOR the NSA and is now a sort of whistle blower on this treason. And this guy is asking them to "destroy" the copies like he doesn't know they're keeping this data forever. Don't forget ARGUS either.
