  •  But SCOTUS always gets the final say on the law (0+ / 0-)

    and Constitution's meaning, until/unless there's an amendment or new statute.

    Hence, the claims that the AP & Rosen situations are snadals and 'abuses of power' are just legal ignorance.  

    OTOH, the claims that they are unwise and could undermine real freedom of the press may well be meritorious.  But that's not as sexy as 'scandal!' and 'Nixon!', is it?  And it puts the focus on efforts to change the law rather than attacking Holder and Obama, which is all this is for most of the critics.
