Check out Chris Hayes' statement regarding the recent AP Phone Records Scandal. For those of you unfamiliar, the Department of Justice was recently exposed for secretly--and possibly illegally--seizing the phone records of Associated Press journalists in an effort to discover the source of leaks and informants.
Hayes statement is an important one. In the midst of so much manufactured outrage and partisan rhetoric, it is easy to become jaded to accusations, especially when they come from the other side. It is important that figures like Hayes, who are ideologically predisposed to defend the Obama Administration, speak truth not only to power, but to their viewers as well.
