    is not the same as "prevented." You know what's "chilling" to journalism? Slavish fealty to the interests of corporate advertisers above all others. It's hilarious to hear these incredibly privileged and protected people claiming how "hampered" their journalism has become because the DOJ accessed a few pages of phone records after being stonewalled. MOREOVER the private companies and the news entities could have sought protections from the courts which they chose not to do.

    I am not defending harrassment of whistle blowers, but some leaks are bad leaks, and if you think the DOJ has NO ROLE TO PLAY in investigating possible criminal activity than your naivete is limitless.
