Given its significance, it is shocking how little publicity the Risen/Sterling case has yet received from major media outlets with a direct interest in its outcome.


The media is more interested in propping up Obama than it is in protecting their own craft.  This isn't surprising at all.

firefly212: The people who fight for a government that operates within the constraints of the constitution, who fight for a government that operates in an honest manner with the citizenry... calling them "traitors" would be a sort of wrong of the highest order. I cannot think of a superlative version of wrong, but that's what it is.


The word you are looking for is "badong".

The Numbers: vernonFL: nmrsnr: There is no privilege to keep your sources secret. You don't tell the court, you go to jail. It's been that way for quite a while. There's even a handy list going back to 1984.

Thankfully Obama never ran under a banner of change, or he'd be looking pretty stupid...


Sure.  Because that means EVERYTHING has to change, even the good stuff and stuff he can't control.

You're on the right team.  Keep trying!

tenpoundsofcheese: I am the libbiest lib who has ever been a liberal and even I think that this is going to far.
It isn't just an attack on the First Amendment, it is an attack on Journalism (with a capital "J").


Awww, did someone forget he was logged into his troll account?

SphericalTime: WTF?  Why is a New York Times reporter not being given "reporter's privilege" under the 1st Amendment?


Because there is no such thing.
