NewspapersThe National Security Agency is probably spying on you. A few weeks ago, the Associated Press reported that the Department of Justice had subpoenaed two months of their phone records—not the actual conversations, but information on which phone numbers they had called and when they had made the calls. Yesterday, The Guardian‘s Glenn Greenwald revealed that the NSA has a secret court order allowing them to collect that info from all Verizon users—including journalists—in the United States.

In an interview with NBC’s Pete Williams, Attorney General Eric Holder reports that the DOJ will definitely investigate Mr. Greenwald’s scoop—not to find out whether the surveillance is overly broad, but just to figure out who leaked the information to him. Mr. Holder also told Mr. Williams that he will not resign, despite mounting criticism over these investigations of the press. (The Guardian/Huffington Post/Politico)
