The spokesman of the White House, Jay Carney, yesterday defended the need to spy on journalists to find out who leaked classified information, something he said will not tolerate the US Government.UU...

Carney insisted that the U.S. President, Barack Obama, defends and values the protection of freedom of expression enshrined in the first amendment of the Constitution, but said that "it is very important that the leaks are not tolerated.".

Carney was confronted at press conference today to questions about the revelation of a new espionage case in which the Justice Department intervened the email of a reporter from the television station Fox News.

The Washington Post newspaper revealed yesterday that the US Government.UU. It spied on 2010 e-mail's James Rosen, journalist for Fox News, something which is known a week once revealed that the Government obtained the call logs telephone of journalists from the agency Associated Press (AP) to investigate a leak.

According to the Post, the FBI agent in charge of obtaining the court order to monitor email Fox journalist justified the measure because this was "at least an accomplice or collaborator" criminal for his contacts with a State ex.

Rosen leaked in June 2009 information from the Adviser of the Department of State Stephen Jin-Woo Kim about the possibility of a North Korean nuclear test, something that published quoting sources in North Korea.

Carney said today that the law known as "Media Shield Law", promoted by the President to protect journalists and their sources, is an example of us commitment.UU. to find a balance between the need to inform and keep secret information deemed of high value to the national security.

"The President believes in a press that pursues investigative journalism, in the defense of the first amendment (...) but if that reveals classified information and endangers the lives of Americans and national security we have it to be taken seriously,"said Carney.

AP reported last week in a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice.UU. that there had been an "unprecedented intrusion" of federal authorities who accused store two months of phone records of reporters in a secret way.
