It was revealed this week that the Justice Department had seized the phone records of a number of Associated Press journalists. The disclosure has generated sharp criticism of the administration, which is already scrambling to manage the fallout from the Benghazi attacks and the IRS' scrutiny of conservative groups.
According to Shane Harris, author of "The Watchers: The Rise of America's Surveillance State," the United States has "entered a gray area when it comes to reporter privilege."
Harris joins The Daily Circuit to discuss the controversy arising from the AP case. Also taking part in the discussion is Raleigh Levine, First Amendment scholar and William Mitchell professor of law.
