    If only the press felt the responsibility to do its job better instead of sell airtime to advertisers and turn a profit for its stockholders...but that's another issue.
Not only is this another issue, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic.

What will be interesting to see is whether the right gives the Obama DOJ a pass on this because they're not opposed to such tactics and welcome the opportunity to employ them. Let's face it, when it comes to civil liberties and the like, the Obama admin is cut straight from Bush's cloth. If there is one thing that history shows is true, once the executive has a power, it does not relinquish it. Obama has been no different.
