Professor Cass Sunstein
of the University of Chicago Law School was my guest for half an hour on the program tonight. A transcript will be up at Radioblogger later tonight. Liberals especially will want to read our conversation, pausing to linger over the parts on the media’s coverage of the NSA leak, and on the damage that the leak could have done to the national security. Major Mike has more on this aspect of the story.
Professor Sunstein has been contacted by a lot of MSM in recent days, which is not surprising given his status as an authortiy on presidential power. When I asked him if he’d been quoted in any of the papers, he mentioned the Los Aneles Times. Here’s one article that features a Times quote, “Legal Test Was Seen as Hurdle to Spying.”
Professor Sunstein –a liberal, but also a veteran of DOJ during the Carter and early Reagan Adminsitrations– is quoted 23 paragraphs into the story. Read the whole story and decide if this isn’t naked agenda journalism.
