MOST TRANSPARENT ADMIN EVER: Obama’s efforts to control leaks ‘most aggressive since Nixon’, report finds
“Scott Shane, the national security reporter at the New York Times, said: “Most people are deterred by those leaks prosecutions. They’re scared to death. There’s a grey zone between classified and unclassified information and most sources were in that grey zone.”
It was having a damaging effect on democracy, Shane said. “If we consider aggressive press coverage of government activities [as] being at the core of American democracy, this tips the balance heavily in favor of the government.”
My sympathy for the actual media outlets here is minimal. My concern is the overall effect this has on the nation’s freedom.
The media complex in this country has been part of the problem for a long time now. It’s biased and in the last 4 1/2 years has stepped that up into the realm of being activists for the Democrat party and in particular, Barack Obama.
