    It depends on the application. I beleive having the option to charge a misdemeanor makes sense. It doesn't mean it has to be applied for every instance. If families are trying there is no need to charge anyone.

    So we're no longer allowed to criticize or disagree with the right without you swinging in like a monkey and calling it cancel culture?

    Report: Biden Administration Officials “Unmasked” Tucker Carlson
    by jonathanturley
    [​IMG]
    A few weeks ago, I testified in the House Judiciary Committee on the surveillance of journalists in a long series of scandals from the Bush to the Obama to the Trump to the Biden Administrations. These scandals have occurred with almost seasonal regularity. There was a rare sense of bipartisanship in the hearing as both parties called for investigation and new legislation to address this ongoing problem. However, there has been a notable silence among members and the media after Tucker Carlson went public with an allegation that his emails were not just intercepted by the National Security Agency (NSA) but that they were shared with members of the press by intelligence officials. Now, there appears confirmation that the communications were mentioned on intercepts and, as some of us assumed early in the coverage, Carlson was “unmasked” by Biden Administration officials. Yet, the response continues to be crickets from the media and members of Congress.

    When the story broke, I stated that it was likely that the communication was not a direct targeting but either an incidental interception (when targeting a foreign intelligence subject) or the gathering of the information when it was discussed by third parties on an intercept. It would then have to have been “unmasked” by an official with such authority. The latest coverage would suggest that it was likely the later circumstance of the communication was discussed or read during an interception and later unmasked.

    This is once again an example of how bias continues to distort coverage. Many in the media dislike Carlson and the feeling is obviously mutual. However, what Carlson described on his show was extremely serious and concerning. He said that a journalist and a third party both contacted him to say that his emails were being leaked. He said that one email (where he was seeking to secure an interview with Russian President Vladimir) was literally read back to him.

    That should have been sufficient to raise calls for investigation and transparency. Whether the email was intercepted directly, incidentally, or merely discussed in a different intercept is not determinative on why the information would have been circulated or why Carlson’s name was unmasked.

    Now, Fox News (who I work for as a legal analyst) is condemning reports in The Record that Carlson was “unmasked” at the request of Biden Administration officials. The NSA had previously denied Carlson’s claims. Now, two sources are being cited as saying that Carlson’s communications were discussed in intercepts and then his identity was unmasked.

    There remain very serious questions. Who unmasked Carlson’s name and why was there an unmasking? Moreover, how would such information be discussed with reporters or third parties, if the original allegations are true?

    You do not have to like Carlson (any more than other media figures subject to such actions) to be concerned over such alleged unmasking and distribution. This should be part of the bipartisan inquiry discussed in the Judiciary Committee.

    You know Tucker sometimes makes good points, but their muddied with moving goal post with different standards for it. If Omar or obama evaluate and analysis our modern day problems and how to use democracy, the most american thing-for us by us govertnment- to move towards their versions of solutions then they hate this country, are ungrateful, heck they should go back to their other countries and fix problems...these are all things they cheered on

    but if trump said our country doesn't have a good history, not nice guys, arm is dumb, hes just a patriot who loves this country so much he couldnt even help break the flag code to hug it. pure love you know?

    If trump panders to saudi, even sends troops there...don't worry about it, but obama meets with a dictator? pretty weak and corrupt and lowering america's stance

    the binary polarizations that give these clowns, be it don lemon, maddow, or tucker carlson andlaura ingrham power is a part of the problem that hurts america, hurts our people, hurts the discourse and climate...but don't worry, they get to be multi millionairs in towers paid by foreign billionaires who tell you, the hurting class how it works..

    he makes good points about the loss of class mobility, that our govertnemtn and companie who ran to china and pushed for worse off labor practices so they can improve their margins even if american jobs and domestic exports/imports suffer. They we're right about china which now has consolidated debt not just here, but in South America, In africa, south asia...so much that you'd be hard to find manufactrers that don't have chinese ownership and thus leverage over us.

    He was write about a disenfranchised middle america that suffered from that.

    Then he also contradicts himsel and holds different standards entirely forbiden/obama than for trump. That unfortunatley shows the insincere partisan nature of this junk. but yea it doesnmt neat these are evil caricatures that are all right or all wrong

    I think trump is a con, a fraud..you can literall hear him contradict himself over...adn over...and over again, let alone lying and taking care of his own pockets as a trusted offical. And i also think he channelged those issues and disenfranchisements and called em out right in china, he even called out Saudi...then as a president pandered and catered to them as much or worse than previous admiinstartions so I'm fine calling it all out. Maybe one of the most dangerous, trump first agendas we've seen...

    I say that also believing biden's track record as a politician and things hes voted for gives very little confidence in him and that nhuntry like ivanka or jared shouldn't be benefiting from peoples resources...but be careful, one side will only point to the others while overlooing their own...the cycle repeats.

    All of the opinion people are total non factors as real news reporters. In fact, there are very very few real news reporters out there. I couldn't even tell someone if they wanted real news where to go anymore. Business channels tend to be better, although they hype stuff too.

    Is Tucker a total non factor as an opinion provider? Not at all. This thread demonstrates that, quite clearly. You can't be a total non factor, and yet get so many riled up over what you say. Conversely, I think a lot of those on the other side follow what he says. One could probably make a good argument he is the biggest factor. Who tops him in terms of influence?
