With the decision to label a Fox News television reporter a possible “co-conspirator” in a criminal investigation of a news leak, the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.
This is a seminal moment for the mainstream media. They’ve been shameless partisan hacks for this president since he was a candidate in 2008. For them to notice that he’s overreaching (the rest of us knew the emperor had no clothes long ago) is huge. Now that The Idiot King is a lame duck they migh-MIGHT-just have enough perspective left to realize that even the most loyal lapdogs among them could quickly find themselves out of favor and being targeted by the White House.
If they let this slide, they deserve as quick a demise as possible and they will have no one to blame but themselves.
