Journalism Takes Another (long-delayed) Hit

The tide seems to be turning against the self-annointed media.   In the Netherlands, the AIVD, the national intelligence service, can eavesdrop and investigate journalists, according to the Interior Minister.
Journalists may not break the law in the execution of their profession and are therefore not shielded from investigation by the AIVD and the prosecution service, the Minister said.
German's foreign intelligence service spied on German journalists and two journalists in the Netherlands who are accused of receiving classified information.
