the theory that soliciting information can be criminal is apparently now ready for application against the mainstream press. We already know that the president explicitly considers freedom of the press to be only one consideration among several that have to be balanced, apparently according to the priorities of officials in his administration. He told us so just days ago, when asked about the government's treatment of the AP:Of course, much of what has been known to have been done is against Fox News since the rest of them largely do exactly what the leviathan wants.
But how is that reporters asking questions, in this case State Department contacts asking about the situation in North Korea, illegal? Its quite a stretch to do this but this is where tyranny starts. We are seeing the loss of individual freedom in the US and it won't be pretty.
