On ABC’s <em>Good Morning America</em> that same day, reporter David Kerley insisted that “the President and White House made it clear they want to go after leakers,” without letting viewers in on how the leading suspects are presumably all top administration officials.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/ap-phone-records-furor-breaks-335-days-silence-obama-leak-scandal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts News Analysis Division abc cbs Justice Department Leaks National security NBC Press War on terrorism Wed, 15 May 2013 15:32:53 +0000 rich.noyes 43581 at http://www.mrc.org The New York Times and National Security Secrets: Obama vs. Bush http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/new-york-times-and-national-security-secrets-obama-vs-bush <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/clay-waters">Clay Waters</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>News that the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2013/02/07/nyt-and-wapo-knew-about-secret-drone-base-saudi-arabia-and-agreed-not"><em>New York Times </em>and<em> Washington Post</em> </a>kept secret until recently the secret U.S. drone base in Saudi Arabia is once again raising questions on the paper's politicized double standards on keeping state secrets related to the war on terror.<img src="http://www.mrc.org/sites/default/files/images/NYT_building_0.jpg.crop_display.jpg" style="float: right;" width="300" height="200" /><br /></p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/new-york-times-and-national-security-secrets-obama-vs-bush" target="_blank">read more</a></p> BiasAlerts Barack Obama Bill Keller David Sanger Double Standards Drones Eric Lichtblau George W.
