AP: We’re above the law.

Media elites pound their chest in defiance of common decency.

If media elites wonder many of us “common folk” take much of what we read, watch or hear with skepticism one might look no further than the actions taken by the Associated Press after the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal email account.

The Secret Service, whom is investigating the event, asked for copies of the emails which the Associated Press refused to turn over. Of course my guess is that the Associated Press is trying to dig for more dirt on Palin in its refusal.

My question is this: on who’s authority can the Associated Press do this?

The AP should be treated with same set of laws which we all abide by. They are no more special or elevated than anyone else. Period.

They might believe they are in some sort of elevated class, but our laws say differently.
