New York Times reporter James Risen (pictured) has been in a years-long legal battle against the government to reveal one of his confidential sources, even petitioning the Supreme Court to hear his case.
This is all part of the Barack Obama administration's assault on free press.
Risen took another shot at the White House in a recent journalism forum for being an enemy of press freedom.
Risen said the current administration is one of the biggest threats to freedom of the press.
The Obama administration can’t stand to have a reporter, especially from a leftist paper like the New York Times, who doesn’t follow other left-wing media reporters who prop up president Obama on a daily basis.
Risen's problems are a part of Obama’s attempt to silence journalists and bloggers who speak out against the administration.
One wonders how Risen gets away with his harsh comments against the Obama administration while working for the Obama worshiping New York Times. It may be because Risen was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and has more respect than others at the Times.
