He was fibbing.

You know how he said citizens' privacy is being "fiercely protected?"

He was lying.

That means the feds are also keeping track of calls reporters make to their spouses, kids, bookies and shrinks.

Stay tuned for more tales government abuse of the phone data collected by the National Security Administration. Betcha we haven't heard the last of it.
