    For validating my point.  And showing your principles are based on who you like or don't.  Exactly like the Republicans the diarist mocks.  

    Bad things aren't bad! And anyway, there's mitigation!

      If you had bothered to read what I wrote, you'd have seen the very first part of my very first sentence:

      I agree that the administration is wrong to pursue journalists and their sources in this way, but I can't feel sorry for Fox.
      See, I'm agreeing that what the administration is doing is wrong, which I thought was your principal point.  I simply noted that it's hard to feel any sympathy for Fox, since in the past the network has actually demanded that journalists be indicted for doing their jobs.  In other words, Fox has demanded that journalists get precisely the same kind of treatment it's now receiving.

      I don't think the government should be doing this at all, but then I've been saying that since the Bush administration.  Fox's objections to the practice strike me as nothing but a hypocritical deathbed conversion.  So while I continue to find this sort of surveillance inconsistent with my reading of the Constitution, Fox's views on it appear entirely situational.
