Freedom of the Press a Threat to National Security?

Last week news broke that the Deparment of Justice secretly obtained phone records of journalists at the Associated Press, but new information has emerged that this wasn't the first case of the government spying on media outlets. The latest Justice Department scandal has gained much attention, but will the DOJ call it quits? Josh Gerstein, White House reporter for Poltico, gives us his take on the latest news.

Although much of the corporate media is already under control via owner and editorial direction it seems that further monitoring and intimidation is being pushed by the Government - especially in light of recent Obama scandals starting from the Fast and Furious gun running corruption to the recent Benghazi murders.
