Maureen Dowd:

“It’s hypocritical,” [James] Risen said. “A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin. They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”

This is one of the last things I would have pegged Obama as being, but thus far his administration has been aggressive at pursuing “leaks” — which would be fine, but he doesn’t seem overly concerned at respecting journalism.
