On Fox News today Jonah Goldberg responded to a a Washington Times report that alleges the FBI will hire a contractor to monitor all of the media coverage about the FBI and grade the stories based on the tone of the content.
The categories for the FBI news stories will rated as “positive,” “neutral” or “negative,” however, the FBI has not stated how it intends on using this information
Goldberg further pointed out why its a bad idea for the Department of Justice and the entire Obama administration.
“They haven’t earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to transparency”
This is just as crazy as the DoJ investigating itself over the many scandals they have been involved with. Why would the FBI need to monitor and grade its media?
“With the public’s distrust of domestic surveillance, the war on drugs and law enforcement in general, this could be the FBI’s attempts at a PR makeover”
