Keller asserted that "there's sometimes a vindictive tone in the way
[administration officials] talk about dragging reporters before grand
juries and in the hints that reporters who look too hard into the
public's business risk being branded traitors." He warned that
journalists possibly are "suffering a bit of subpoena fatigue. Maybe
some people are a little intimidated by the way the White House plays
the soft-on-terror card. Whatever the reason, I worry that we're not as
worried as we should be."
