-- I have talked to Rick Sanchez who has written an interesting article today.
About on Fox News Latino why James Rosen.
Should matter to all about this is not simply an issue that's limited just to the press corps and pretentious is joining us now via Skype from Miami Rick great to see you nice to have you on board.
-- because you know I compliment barbarian country.
I -- -- that is where we're we don't have them.
Was so I was just alluding to and I think it's extremely important.
That we look at this particular.
What is built Obama.
Especially with DOJ -- -- an affair more than anything else that I've seen in in quite some time and and and I wrote this piece may be coming out from a little bit.
Different perspective -- -- Then and at my point is quite simple.
I like leaks.
I -- -- from the State Department I like at least from the White House I like leaks in general it's telling when I was -- killing guys -- now an adult I like leaks I appreciate them.
I think that leaks are usually the product of good report charged.
And that's what we need to be applauding.
And that's why when I see people in Washington -- from two different directions.
Those who say well we have to really be careful with these -- Obviously not only when I say that I like please let me promise that our approach is up by saying that.
You know I don't like think leaks.
Like real horror I think.
But and and and I think after James Rosen was doing he was doing his job.
And he's being punished for and we all as -- as ms.
Miller sent to stand up and and he gets its.
It's fascinating that in fact that this is a White House that has gone after leaks and such an aggressive way.
In a wave that may is trying to send a message to the public that what's being done right now that what's happening.
Illegal speaks of conspiracy -- ending in fact it's all about what you just put it out reporters is doing their job.
No question in this case do you look at it all the way down a lot of meat you know.
I mean I know everybody else is also already sent us and we don't need to be -- good today but.
He was he had a source and that source needs to be protected.
Now if they -- to go after the source that's fine but in the process of going after the source can we had no right.
To go after James Rosen when they do that they create a chilling -- And that means and for those of you maybe haven't studied journalism this is something that's ingrained in us when we go to journalism school that's very important it's right there are getting the constitution if you look at me every Minnesota -- get any of the Supreme Court cases.
No source no one -- information.
We'll go to -- or go to Rick Sanchez or go to Judy Miller ever if they think that by talking to them.
Somebody is gonna know what they're saying.
Be -- highest levels of government.
That's what you get.
In countries like Cuba where I was born.
That's what you get in countries that are wrote on totalitarian nature oligarchy speaks Eric Serra and that's what we have to.
Defend against more than anything else.
Noel said but what -- the public -- the public is starting to.
Pay closer attention to this story.
In terms of the facts -- as it's developing are getting that you know stands at.
Hey you know what's going on here made -- -- big alarms and we should be.
We should -- You know talking about the fact that the First Amendment guarantees certain -- for at privileges and principled and that -- reporter should be allowed to do their jobs.
Fortunately the average person is so busy with -- -- And going to their daily lives that they don't understand the nuance.
Well what we do for a living that's why this latest poll that was like this conducted -- bosses -- does CNN.
Came out to 53% for Obama would shows -- video of movement -- people are still supporting the president and the reason.
That is simple and this is not a new concept you know what it's about yeah.
-- there have been some good trend lines as far as the economy's going these days as far as GP in production and Serra -- housing for example and I think that's keeping people.
From a reacting to these stories however it's not about what happens -- one week.
It's about what happens overall especially when the president is going to be able to run again and I think it creates a perception.
In people's minds that this guy may not.
Be who we always thought he wants -- there -- some there are some flaws there there are some weaknesses.
In understanding the basic principles of what we as Americans are all about.
And I think it shows if nothing else if it doesn't get to the White House and after we investigate this we find out that this isn't that this never reach that level say yeah -- say in nixonian terms.
It still is a question about the kind of people he's hired and that kind of judgment day and Barry knows that's a really good point and it's.
