Bush is Listening, Media Edition

I guess it's turning into Spy Week here at Hog. Or maybe not just at Hog. Anyhoo, Bushie got his ear to the reporters' phones:

A senior federal law enforcement official tells ABC News the government is tracking the phone numbers we (Brian Ross and Richard Esposito) call in an effort to root out confidential sources.

"It's time for you to get some new cell phones, quick," the source told us in an in-person conversation....

Other sources have told us that phone calls and contacts by reporters for ABC News, along with the New York Times and the Washington Post, are being examined as part of a widespread CIA leak investigation.

It'd be stretching the truth to describe my reaction as "surprised."
