Eugene Robinson… points out troublesome behavior from Obama towards the press.

You know, Eugene Robinson, I can’t help but notice that… you are upset at the current administration’s policies on leaks.

The Obama administration has no business rummaging through journalists’ phone records, perusing their e-mails and tracking their movements in an attempt to keep them from gathering news. This heavy-handed business isn’t chilling, it’s just plain cold.

And that this situation you are now describing… is a troublesome one.

The unwarranted snooping, which was revealed last week, would be troubling enough if it were an isolated incident. But it is part of a pattern that threatens to redefine investigative reporting as criminal behavior.

And, indeed, this observation that you have now taken up – that we have been seeing this sort of thing from the Obama administration for some time – is… very much on topic.  Yes.


Thank you for pointing this out.  And thank you for noting that prior administrations have shown more restraint in dealing with journalists.

  1. 3 reactions:

    1) Will Chris Matthews call Eugene Robinson a racist? I mean Tingles did say that was the only reason Republicans criticized Obama.

    2) Eric Holder authorizes an operation to provide cheap guns to Mexican Drug Cartels that result in the death of Brian Terry and 1000’s of Mexicans & Gene is ok with that but subpoening the AP phone records is cold. Gene that is some seriously messed up priorities.


  2. This cat would like to know how few lug nuts are still holding the wheels onto this administration…
    When you’ve lost Eugene (effin’) Robinson…
