    Doesn’t matter which party, they all wish they could do this.
    I reside in a “democratic” South American country where criticism of the government by the press is frowned upon and the press is tightly controlled.
    Gripe all you want about the attempt by government to control the media but it’s a hundred times worse almost everywhere else in the world.

    I thought these things were supposed to be satirical.

    The list of approved topics looks like the usual morning network news!

    He forgot the Kardashians. Celebrity gossip seems to be the journalism of the day.

    What is a “side boob”?

    Look, journalists have the least risk in this information exchange. It is the government employee who is actually breaking the law by leaking, not the poor journalist whose activity is constitutionally protected. It is the civil servant who makes the decision to leak. The press merely decides which leaks are newsworthy. Bradley Manning rots in jail and he may never see freedom again.

    Gee, the only time I leak is when I can’t get to the bathroom in time.

    @Lowell Nottingham: Sorry, that’s now classified as well. Your grand jury is waiting.

    Just try to find a journalist in the U.S. these daze! If you’re not pukin’ the corporate party line and generating revenue, you’re not scribblin’ or speakin’ for any publication or selectronic media. Government propaganda notwithstanding, what sells product is what gets printed or broadcast.
    I majored in journalism but a brief all expenses paid vacation to southeast asia altered my perspective about media. Continued awareness of “mass media” convinced me to find a (honest) living elsewhere.

    “The dual revelations, in rapid succession, also suggested that someone with access to high-level intelligence secrets had decided to unveil them in the midst of furor over leak investigations. Both were reported by The Guardian, while The Post, relying upon the same presentation, almost simultaneously reported the Internet company tapping. The Post said a disenchanted intelligence official provided it with the documents to expose government overreach.” – NYT, June 6.

    Trust me the use of the word “disenchanted” will mean this poor schmuck is toast. Why did we need the adjective? Why not let his motives be revealed in his own way? It is almost a double cross. The official gives up a state secret, and the journalists screw him while making room on their mantles for the Pulitzer.

    Side boob is exactly what it says, the side of a boob. Put it in your search engine and enjoy the pictures.

    @Liam – While Obama is continuing the program, the legal justifications cited are parts of Bush’s Patriot Act.
