The net cast by the Department of Justice into the media pool just keeps getting bigger. The original story of Associated Press phone records being seized alone was enough to qualify as the Obama administration’s third big scandal of the moment, right up there with Benghazi and the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. Then we learned that the Justice Department had looked into not only the work calls of Fox News’ James Rosen, but his personal cell phone, his movements and his Google emails as well. And now, reports say that the DOJ looked into his parents’ phone records too.
It will be interesting to see if other news outlets pick up this story — they certainly ought to be concerned.
