Report: Obama brings chilling effect on journalism

By BRETT ZONGKER
Associated Press
 
 
Report: Obama brings chilling effect on journalism
 Obama: Complaints about fed workers 'destructive'

Boehner sending small group to Obama meeting

Obama nominates Yellen to succeed Bernanke at Fed

For Obama, little to say that hasn't been said


 
 
   
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. government's aggressive prosecution of leaks and efforts to control information are having a chilling effect on journalists and government whistle-blowers, according to a report released Thursday on U.S. press freedoms under the Obama administration.

The Committee to Protect Journalists conducted its first examination of U.S. press freedoms amid the Obama administration's unprecedented number of prosecutions of government sources and seizures of journalists' records. Usually the group focuses on advocating for press freedoms abroad.

Leonard Downie Jr., a former executive editor of The Washington Post, wrote the 30-page analysis entitled "The Obama Administration and the Press." The report notes President Barack Obama came into office pledging an open, transparent government after criticizing the Bush administration's secrecy, "but he has fallen short of his promise."

"In the Obama administration's Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press," wrote Downie, now a journalism professor at Arizona State University. "The administration's war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I've seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in The Washington Post's investigation of Watergate."

Downie interviewed numerous reporters and editors, including a top editor at The Associated Press, following revelations this year that the government secretly seized records for telephone lines and switchboards used by more than 100 AP journalists. Downie also interviewed journalists whose sources have been prosecuted on felony charges

Those suspected of discussing classified information are increasingly subject to investigation, lie-detector tests, scrutiny of telephone and email records and now surveillance by co-workers under a new "Insider Threat Program" that has been implemented in every agency.

"There's no question that sources are looking over their shoulders," Michael Oreskes, the AP's senior managing editor, told Downie. "Sources are more jittery and more standoffish, not just in national security reporting. A lot of skittishness is at the more routine level. The Obama administration has been extremely controlling and extremely resistant to journalistic intervention."

To bypass journalists, the White House developed its own network of websites, social media and even created an online newscast to dispense favorable information and images. In some cases, the White House produces videos of the president's meetings with major figures that were never listed on his public schedule. Instead, they were kept secret - a departure from past administrations, the report noted.

Frank Sesno, a former CNN Washington bureau chief who is now director of George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs, told Downie the combined efforts of the Obama administration are "squeezing the flow of information."

"Open dialogue with the public without filters is good, but if used for propaganda and to avoid contact with journalists, it's a slippery slope," Sesno said.

In the report, White House officials objected to findings that the administration has limited transparency or information. Press Secretary Jay Carney said such complaints are part of the "natural tension" between the White House and the press.

"The idea that people are shutting up and not leaking to reporters is belied by the facts," Carney told Downie.

National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said there is still investigative reporting about national security issues with information from "nonsanctioned sources with lots of unclassified information and some sensitive information."

Downie found the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were a "watershed moment," leading to increased secrecy, surveillance and control of information. There is little direct comparison between the Bush and Obama administrations, though some journalists told Downie the Obama administration exercises more control.

"Every administration learns from the previous administration," said CBS Chief Washington Correspondent Bob Schieffer. "They become more secretive and put tighter clamps on information."

Shortly after Obama entered office, the White House was under pressure from intelligence agencies and Congress to stop leaks of national security information. The administration's first prosecution for leaking information came in April 2009 after a Hebrew linguist working for the FBI gave a blogger classified information about Israel.

Other prosecutions followed, targeting some government employees who believed they were whistle-blowers. The administration has rejected whistle-blower claims if they do not involve "waste, fraud or abuse," according to report. So sources exposing questionable or illegal practices are considered leaks.

To date, six government employees and two contractors have been targeted for prosecution under the 1917 Espionage Act for accusations that they leaked classified information to the press. There were just three such prosecutions under all previous U.S. presidents.

By 2012, an AP report about the CIA's success in foiling a bomb plot in Yemen further escalated the Obama administration's efforts, even as the White House congratulated the CIA on the operation, Downie wrote. The disclosure in May that the government had secretly subpoenaed and seized AP phone records drew sharp criticism from many news organizations and civil rights advocates.

In September, the Justice Department announced AP's phone records led investigators to a former FBI bomb technician who pleaded guilty to disclosing the operation to a reporter.

"This prosecution demonstrates our deep resolve to hold accountable anyone who would violate their solemn duty to protect our nation's secrets and to prevent future, potentially devastating leaks by those who would wantonly ignore their obligations to safeguard classified information," the Justice Department said last month.

Kathleen Carroll, AP's executive editor, said the report highlights the growing threats to independent journalism in a country that has upheld press freedom as a measure of democratic society for two centuries.

"We find we must fight for those freedoms every day as the fog of secrecy descends on every level of government activity," she said in a statement. "That fight is worthwhile, as we learned when the outcry over the Justice Department's secret seizure of AP phone records led to proposed revisions intended to protect journalists from overly broad investigative techniques. Implementation of those revisions is an important next step."

In its report, the Committee to Protect Journalists recommends several reforms, including ending the practice of charging people who leak information to journalists with espionage and preventing secret subpoenas of journalists' records.

Five Reasons You May Not Get To Keep Your Health Plan, Even If You Like It


 

Josh Barro   Oct. 31, 2013, 9:12 AM       1,809    25 
 


The White House remains committed to defending President Obama's promise that "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan." Obama devoted a significant section of his Wednesday speech in Boston to the proposition. On Monday, his top adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted this:




Valerie Jarrett tweet
Twitter/@VJ44



The administration's conceit is as follows: The law allows people to stay on any insurance plan they were already on as of March 23, 2010. These are the "grandfathered" plans. Only plans that changed their terms after that date have to be canceled if they don't meet various Obamacare requirements.

This is a very thin defense. Here are several ways Obamacare is (entirely foreseeably) changing people's health coverage in ways they might not like:
1.Plans can lose their grandfathered status because they had modest changes to co-payments, deductibles or other provisions after March 23, 2010. Individuals also can't keep non-compliant plans they signed up for after that date. These two phenomena are the reason so many people with individual market health plans are getting cancellation notices. It was not obvious that the president's promise included a "so long as you were on that plan as of March 2010 and its terms didn't change" caveat.
2.Insurers are allowed to continue to offer grandfathered health plans, but that doesn't mean they have to. Under Obamacare, they may not want to. Kaiser Health News reported earlier this month that some insurers are canceling "guaranteed issue" plans that were marketed to people with higher health costs. Insurers will be better off financially moving these participants into plans in the Obamacare exchanges, where they will be pooled with healthier, lower-cost insureds.
3.The ACA is inducing firms to drop group health coverage for some people. For example, Trader Joe's is ending coverage for part-time workers, and IBM is ending coverage for retirees. They're making these moves because their workers and retirees now have access to coverage through the Obamacare exchanges. These people aren't necessarily getting screwed (some will be better off financially, especially if they have low incomes) but they can't keep their existing health coverage, even if they like it.
4.Starting in 2018, the ACA will impose a "Cadillac Tax" on employer-provided health plans that cost more than $27,500 for family coverage, such as the Goldman Sachs plan that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) gets through his investment banker wife. This provision is designed to induce firms to reduce the generosity of high-cost plans; people like Cruz with high-end plans may not be able to keep them.
5.The ACA cuts funding for Medicare Advantage, a program that provides private insurance plans to people over 65. The generosity of these plans is widely expected to decline, though effects so far have been modest.

Most of these changes are not happening because of direct government action. The ACA doesn't tell employers they have to drop coverage for part-time workers or slim down their high-cost health plans. It just gives them strong financial incentives to do so.

In general, liberals tend to understand that direct state power is not the only kind of coercive power. In general, they would not find, "I didn't do that to you, I just changed the law in a way that gave a company a strong incentive to do that to you" to be a convincing argument. So I'm not sure why at least some people on the left seem to be buying the White House line on this.

Stepping back, not only was, "If you like your health plan, you can keep it" a lie, it would have been insane if it were true. There is no good way to reform the U.S. health care system without making anybody change health plans.

Our health care system is characterized by astronomical costs, average outcomes, and spotty coverage. Some people have health plans that obscure the real cost of care and drive them to overconsume. Others have plans with big gaps in coverage that could leave them untreated or bankrupt in the case of illness. How could you possibly design health reform around letting people keep both of these kinds of plans?

Obamacare does a good job at getting rid of the too-skimpy plans and does a little bit to discourage overly generous ones. A better reform would have forced more people off the plans they have now. For now, some people will lose health plans they wanted to keep, but not as many as I'd like.
