Most recently, journalist James Rosen of Fox News became a Justice Department co-conspirator in their investigation covering a leak of sensitive documents due to an investigative report he had done on North Korea. Tantaros informed listeners of what life is like for any journalist that is willing to report on news the Obama administration finds unflattering.
She chronicled some of the conditions as being spied on such as through wiretaps, being stalked, and in the case of one Missouri radio host who discussed the IRS abuses: fired.
Tantaros described these conditions as similar to what was experienced in the Soviet Union and then asked viewers to do her a favor and punch Obama voters in the “kisser”.
“Let me tell you how people and journalists are being treated these days,” she said. “They are being stalked. They are being spied on. In Missouri, a news station fired an anchor who talked about the IRS shakedown. Yeah—fired. This is how corrupt the left is.”
She added, “This is what’s happening to our press. This is Obama’s America. It’s like the Soviet Union. He said he would change the country. He said it … and a lot of people voted for him. And if you see any of those people today, do me a favor and punch them in the face.”
Fox News President Roger Ailes has recently condemned the Obama administration’s targeting of James Rosen and publicly stated his support for the embattled journalist. In related news, the IRS has admitted to targeting conservative groups like the Tea Party for politically motivated harassment.
