TSA subpoenas bloggers, demands names of sources

Read more here:

" Frischling said he met with two TSA special agents Tuesday night at his Connecticut home for about three hours and again on Wednesday morning when he was forced to hand over his lap top computer. Frischling said the agents threatened to interfere with his contract to write a blog for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines if he didn't cooperate and provide the name of the person who leaked the memo.
"It literally showed up in my box," Frischling told The Associated Press. "I do not know who it came from." He said he provided the agents a signed statement to that effect."

Note: I thought journalists were not obligated to reveal their sources. Oh - but bloggers are not journalists we will hear. I'm sorry, but it is from bloggers - and not the corporate media controlled "journalists" that we get any real information any more. That is probably why the information was sent to a blogger and not to a corporate media outlet - after all - the corporate media lied us into two wars. Silencing bloggers is a trend toward tyranny. Why is anyone afraid of "crazy conspiracy theorists" - the public can tell if someone is telling them the truth. Or is that the problem? If we have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people - why in the world are our paid servants hiding information from us?
