Last Monday, the Supreme Court provided invaluable aid to the Obama administration's campaign to hide evidence of federal abuses from Americans.
Readers and viewers don't often confuse Fox News with the New York Times. Each offers a unique perspective on world events, and it's a rare day when the conservative cable network joins the liberal broadsheet in a common perspective, but that's what happened last week in Manhattan where President Obama was declared to be "the greatest enemy of press freedom."
The New England First Amendment Coalition has honored a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter who could go to jail for refusing a court order to reveal a source.
New York Times reporter James Risen does not have to testify on national security leaks until the Supreme Court hears his appeal in the case, a federal appellate court ruled Monday.
The New York Times intends to take its case against the Obama administration to the Supreme Court. In July, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with administration lawyers in ruling that New York Times reporter James Risen must reveal the confidential sources he used for a series of articles and a 2006 book, "State of War," about the CIA's bungled efforts to stop Iran's nuclear program. On Tuesday, the 4th Circuit refused to change its mind, leaving the Supreme Court with the final say in the matter.
It took the Senate Judiciary Committee 837 words to define a journalist. That's nearly 20 times as long as the First Amendment. The definition has become part of the Free Flow of Information Act of 2013, which passed the committee last week by a vote of 13-5.
A former CIA officer has been indicted on charges of disclosing national security secrets after being accused of leaking classified information about Iran to a New York Times reporter.
Risen was subpoenaed to testify at the trial of Jeffrey Sterling, a former CIA officer charged with disclosing classified information, some of which was the same information Risen wrote about in his book, "State of War."
"This is the worst time period in my career as a journalist for press freedom," says Mr. Risen. "The Obama administration has doubled down on reductions in press freedom that began in the Bush administration, and they are engaged in the kind of aggressive anti-press activities that the Bush administration only contemplated and never pursued."
