After The Dissenter ran a Sept. 10 interview with a member of the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Militarization of CUNY protesting former CIA Director David Petraeus’ adjunct professor gig at CUNY Macaulay Honors College, national coverage has exploded on protests occurring on his Sept. 9 first day of class.

I wish sometimes that the various news divisions within these organizations still reflected the pioneers of broadcast journalism. Even as he sometimes did commercial shows, Edward R Murrow brought in depth reporting. Walter Cronkite did a few appearances in network shows and movies but maintained his credibility. NBC gave us Chet Huntley and David Brinkley then John Chancellor. I would hesitate to designate any current news anchors from these big 5 broadcast media groups as an heir to these men. Instead of a Huntley or Brinkley, we get Disco Dave Gregory and his dance party.

No matter how many times we’ve seen it before, the frenzy for launching a military attack on another country is — to the extent we’re not numb — profoundly upsetting. Tanked up with talking points in Washington, top officials drive policy while intoxicated with what Martin Luther King Jr. called “the madness of militarism,” and most media coverage becomes similarly unhinged. That’s where we are now.

In their mission to provide their viewers with only the most ridiculous paranoid conspiracies conceivable, Fox News “cyber-terrorism expert” Morgan Wright explains that the terrorists are going to take over your car remotely (presumably using an Xbox controller) and make you careen wildly out of the Taco Bell drive-thru before you can grab your 12-pack of Cool Ranch Loco Tacos and 64-ounce El Gordito Mr. Pibb and then you will starve to death and the terrorists will have won. The end.

News Corporation, parent company of Fox News, publicly disputed claims made by the Department of Justice concerning notifications received in the James Rosen press spying case. While DOJ asserts it notified News Corp of the subpoena that led to them seizing phone records of a journalist, News Corp said it had no records of any such notification.

The Associated Press were not the only ones to have their phone records seized by the government as it was revealed Tuesday that Fox News had their phone records seized as part of the Obama Administration’s war on whistleblowers. After being labeled a “co-conspirator” Fox News reporter James Rosen was targeted for doing basic journalism.

It has become increasingly well-known that President Barack Obama considers whistleblowers or alleged leakers to be individuals who deserve no protections whatsoever. Recently, with the seizure of the Associated Press’ records and the affidavit showing the Justice Department cast Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “co-conspirator” in a leak investigation into State Department contractor Stephen Kim, it has become clear that the administration is willing to criminalize journalists in order to bolster their own investigations.

The extent of the administration of President Barack Obama’s attacks on the First Amendment has been confirmed to include having the Justice Department pursue a Fox News journalist as a “co-conspirator” in a leak investigation.
The investigation involves Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a State Department employee, who has been under investigation for possibly leaking classified information on North Korea to Fox News reporter James Rosen.
