Jake Tapper, the senior White House correspondent for ABC News, asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney how public support of those journalists’ work “square[s] with the fact that this administration has been so aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism in the United States by using the Espionage Act to take whistleblowers to court.

DOJ Not Even Pretending to be Nonpartisan Anymore
I’d read something about this several days ago, but for some reason, I decided not to post on it. Now, it’s surfaced again. The Obama Justice Department isn’t even trying to appear to be non-partisan anymore (did they ever try in the first place, though?).
