At what point does “the free press” cross the line into seditious behavior?
The balance between a free press and national security is under threat.
President Trump has faced seven times more leaks mainly from many in the SEDITIOUS media during the first 126 days of his administration than the previous two administrations. That figure includes many leaks from the intelligence community that were aimed at embarrassing Trump but have damaged U.S. national security, according to a new Senate Homeland Security Committee report that found the Trump administration is averaging one leak per day containing "information that is potentially damaging to national security." The reports have come from CNN, "The New York Times," "The Washington Post," and many others and often refer to unnamed sources. Many have turned out to be false or misleading.
The Trump administration has stepped up a stealthy operation to smoke out leakers. National security officials across the federal government say they are seeing new restrictions on who can access sensitive information. Internet news source Politico reveals their biased reporting. They are quoted as saying, it is a "White House’s obsession with leaks" No one knows how far Trump and his affiliates would go to silence them or the reporters they talk to. http://www.politico.com/story
No accused leaker has ever been acquitted of their crime based on an argument that the public interest was so great that it justified a leak.

Revealing classified information by a media organization. Sedition, crime against the state. Though sedition may have the same ultimate effect as treason, it is generally limited to the offense of organizing or encouraging opposition to government in a manner (such as in speech or writing) that falls short of the more dangerous offenses constituting treason. The publication of seditious writing (“seditious libel”) or the utterance of seditious speech (“seditious words”) is a crime in English common law.
Can a media organization be held liable for sedition? It’s a novel legal and constitutional question and no doubt that the guilty leaker would argue it is protected under the First Amendment’s freedom of the press protections. But at what point does “the free press” cross the line into seditious behavior? Freedom of the press should not be used as cover to promote the overthrow of our elected leaders

Monkey Business by the Media - “You don’t attack someone in the press”. “You don’t get in a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel” Former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell says, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays. "The media have become and enemy of the American Public. News is Censored
Surveys over the past 30 years have consistently found that journalists - especially those at the highest ranks of their profession describe themselves as liberal, will vote liberal and agree with the liberal position on policy matters.
