However, almost just as chilling is the new way in which the United States Federal government deals with true journalism that prints leaked information and legitimately attempts to expose the corruption.
In recent weeks it has come out that there has been illegal phone hackings, email monitoring, and arrests by the Department of Justice. From the Associated Press to Fox; the war on journalism has been quietly raging.
The war on whistleblowers is at an all time high. The Obama administration, using world war one espionage laws have cracked down and prosecuted more whistleblowers than all previous administrations combined. This, in spite of the fact that it is both legal and lawful to expose illegal activity in government via the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) of 1989 which allowed for whistle blowing when he/she “reasonably believes evidences a violation of a law, rule or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; an abuse of authority; or a substantial and specific danger to public health or safety.”
But, we are not to worry as those responsible for such illegal activity and war on the first amendment “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Eric Holder (head of the Department of Justice) has been assigned the task of investigating Eric Holder’s illegal activity. Alternative media is always here brining the truth into the mainstream and creating conversations on the illegal activity of government, if the government still served the people, would be completely transparent. Instead, we live in a world where the government keeps secrets, and the public is spied on.
