As to 'most dangerous to the media', it involves the pursuit of leaks within the government which are used to undermine public policy. The media has all the right to pursue information, however they may find themselves having to explain themselves is court.
The transparency of our government has improved immensely on one hand, and the pursuit of leakers has been increased as well. If people want to break the law as 'whistleblowers' then by all means let them do so, and let them understand that our government has the right and duty to pursue such violations of law as the cost of many of these actions can be quite immense to the well being of our nation.
It's a fine balance between access and responsibilities.
Under Obama, the Espionage Act has been used to mount felony prosecutions against six government employees and two contractors accused of leaking classified information to the press, including Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning and Edward Snowden. In all previous administrations, there had been just three such prosecutions.
Still more criminal investigations into leaks are under way, the report points out. In one of them, a Fox news reporter was accused of "being an 'aider, abettor and/or conspirator' of an indicted leak defendant, exposing him to possible prosecution for doing his job as a journalist."
Ah, but there lies the beauty: while some may believe that it is the job of a journalist to report on information, most reputable journalists also understand that they have a duty when reporting, to not do harm. Too many so called 'reporters' believe that the story has become more important than the effects it has leading to intrusions on privacy of others, under the excuse of 'doing their jobs'.
Where were these so called journalist when we were being lied to about the wars? What happened to reporting the facts rather than spinning the facts?
If and when a journalist breaks the law, then he/she should be willing to take the consequences of doing so and not whine about it.
