MindStalker: FTA: "government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press, "Ugh, years ago when I did some government statistics for a state government. I had a reporter call me and ask me questions about some inaccuracies in the data. I thanked him, explained there error in the query, and went about fixing my query.

jakomo002: To be fair, Obama has aggressively prosecuted more leakers than all other administrations combined....
Bareefer Obonghit: Of course you accuse the black guy of spending too much time chilling.
