    Here are the points folks use to defend this

    1.  The MSM is worthless, so who cares.
    2.  The AP reporters foiled an intel operation.
    3.  It is legal to spy on reporters because of the Patriot Act, so what's the big deal.

    If I have time, I am going to write a diary debunking each one of these.  For certain (too) folks (gr) it won't make any difference and won't spark a worthwhile debat, but there is hope for others.

    And I still haven't ever received an answer to this question.  Let's assume Obama is only going after irresponsible journalists and leaving all other investigative ones alone.  What about the next Republican President.   Are you comfortable with him/her having this power?

    Call your representative and senators and the white house (lack of capitalization intended) to STOP this crazy warmongering with Iran, please.
