These are not my words, but a good introduction: “Such actions are also designed to “intimidate sources,” Scarborough noted, which Bernstein deemed “inexcusable.” There “is no reason that a presidency that is interested in a truly free press and its functioning should permit this to happen,” Bernstein asserted.”
Take the 9 minutes needed and listen to the story. Where does the need of the government to know, infringe upon our right to privacy and the ability of what is supposed to be a free press, to remain just that, free?
Isn’t this chilling? Doesn’t it make your blood boil? Even Carl Bernstein (or should I say, ESPECIALLY Carl Bernstein, is up in arms… Sounds like Watergate, Richard Nixon all over again. America, wake up; we need to be the WATCHDOG OF OUR GOVERNMENT!
