ABC News Won't Name Source Who Told Them That He's Tapping Their Phones to Find Their Sources
A senior federal law enforcement official tells ABC News the government is tracking the phone numbers we call in an effort to root out confidential sources.
"It's time for you to get some new cell phones, quick," the source told us in an in-person conversation.
What do you think, guys, "Holy Shit" tag? It's up for debate. While we have no doubt that the NSA is more than willing to get all ECHELON on reporters' phones, we doubt their ability to do anything, even intimidate reporters, with any degree of competence. They haven't busted our dealer yet, and we call him way more often than our anonymous intelligence sources.
Still, though, if you're Sy Hersh or Murray Waas, you should probably switch to Qwest. The rest of you idiots are fine.
