I was planning to post something about the quinfecta Dan Pfeiffer pulled off yesterday on the Sunday talk shows. (Spoiler alert: when a relatively unknown member of the Administration appears on all five Sunday talk shows, it is to peddle a lie and/or obscure the truth. CF. Susan Rice.)
But no. Instead, I have to take note of this morning’s obamination: the charging of a reporter with being “an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator” in espionage, because the reporter broadcast leaked information.
Pull quote from the Washington Post:
…it remains an open question whether it’s ever illegal, given the First Amendment’s protection of press freedom, for a reporter to solicit information. No reporter, including Rosen, has been prosecuted for doing so.
Is there some as yet unread paragraph in the Affordable Care Act that revives the Alien & Sedition Acts of 1798?
(A tip o’ the hat to Instapundit.)
