According to an investigative report by NBC, Attorney General Eric Holder gave the go-ahead in the spring of 2010 for the Justice Department to obtain a search warrant for Fox News reporter James Rosen's e-mail correspondence with intelligence analyst Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, who has been accused of leaking a classified report on North Korea. Last week, it was revealed that the Justice Department had done the exact same thing with Associated Press emails in spring 2012, but Holder recused himself from that investigation. The NBC case would seem to put Holder in the middle of a scenario that he supposedly wants to amend — yesterday, he was said to be meeting with media conglomerates to advise on a media shield law that would give journalists more protection in keeping their sources confidential.
