National Security, Government 'Spin' and the First Amendment

Hosted by  • 

The Obama Administration's accused of abusing press freedom by seizing Associated Press phone records. Was that really necessary to protect American lives? Should reporters go back to meeting sources on shaded park benches or can new technology protect them and their sources from government intrusion and hackers who've spread false messages? Also, Capitol Hill begins hearing on IRS misconduct, and the summer movie season begins. Get ready for blockbusters and R-rated comedies.
