Feds Snag Phone Records for AP Reporters

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Associated Press' top executive is calling the Justice Department's seizure of two months of telephone records of its reporters and editors a "massive and unprecedented intrusion" into newsgathering.

The government hasn't said why it secretly obtained the records, though officials have said prosecutors are conducting a criminal investigation into who leaked details about a CIA operation in Yemen that foiled a terror plot.
