For all we know, reporting it was necessary due to leaks, could be a false report in itself. We already know Obama doesn't like Republican leaning news outlets. Or libertarians. That he'd love to get his hands on the internet, even to shut it down. The right is opposed to most of what he stands for including going after guns. This, plus going after patriots or Constitutionalists, after having a HS head labeling the same folks as terrorists doesn't give any of Obama Administrations claims much credibility. He's a wannabe dictator breaking the law by usurping powers he does not possess. When all these things are considered as a whole, it doesn't reflect well.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
