By now you've heard that our Department of Justice seized two months of phone records from over 20 AP phone lines -- including cell and home phone lines -- used by over 100 reporters. Wonder why they'd do that? Justice claims they're trying to find the source of a leak; the AP speculates the leak relates to a plot to carry a bomb on a plane, a plot our government allegedly foiled in early May. Maybe the Department of Justice really wanted that story to go out -- but intimidating reporters with overbroad, illegal investigations is a bad, bad way to do that. The "liberal" media seems shocked, SHOCKED! that this could happen in America; if you recall their relative silence over warrantless wiretapping, you might think they'll actually hurt like we do, now that it's being done to them! Perhaps that's too much to hope for, but still, duty is duty: both Free Press and CREDO help you tell our Attorney General to stop intimidating the press.
Meanwhile, Trader Joe's still refuses to deal with public pressure about selling antibiotic-raised meat, and worse, cranks out this jewel of spokeshackdom: "We understand the importance of our customers' decisions when it comes to their grocery shopping and do not presume to make choices for them." But they already choose what to sell in their stores! Aside from the absurd implication that some significant sliver of Trader Joe's customer base would only eat meat from miserable factory farm animals pumped full of antibiotics, they're not making Freedom Ponies by keeping this meat in their stores, they're doing the opposite -- selling antibiotic-raised meat insures that superbugs get stronger, and thus antibiotics become less effective, and thus people get sicker -- and thus less free. So Consumer Reports helps you call Trader Joe's and ask them to stop selling antibiotic-raised meat.
