As far as the "golden age of investigative journalism:" don’t all the stories come from leaks? The press has been on its knees for years. The NYT sat on the FISA story for over a year and an election.

Never... never, ever has a government been given or taken this sort of power without eventual using it for nefarious ends. Shame on all of the media for not drilling this simple point into the public consciousness for the last six years. WELCOME BIG BROTHER, WE ALL NOW LIVE IN CHINA!
