Who has to worry about the government having phone records? Terrorists, criminals, and the press.

May 18th, 2006

Most Americans don’t seem that upset that the Government is trying to database the phone numbers we call.

The feeling seems to be that if you’re not using your phone to call terrorists, buy viagra cialis buy drugs, viagra generic check stalk ex-girlfriends, or ask people if their refigerator is running, you probably don’t have anything to worry about.

The Press on the other hand is throwing a hissy fit.

And I just realized why…

…it’s about to get a whole lot harder to keep leakers anonymous.

And that’s just dandy with me.

I think most leakers are cowards.

If something is important enough to say, stand up and say it with pride.

It always amazes me that the accused has a right to confront his accusers in a court of law, but the press considers facilitating anonymous accusations a sacred duty.

    Let us not forget, the Media also is choosy about what leaks they get upset about. Some leaks are more equal than others.
