    The Department of Homeland Security has compiled “intelligence reports” about the work of American journalists covering protests in Portland, Ore., in what current and former officials called an alarming use of a government system meant to share information about suspected terrorists and violent actors.

    After The Washington Post published a story online Thursday evening detailing the department’s practices, the acting homeland security secretary, Chad Wolf, ordered the intelligence office to stop collecting information on journalists and announced an investigation into the matter.

    “In no way does the Acting Secretary condone this practice and he has immediately ordered an inquiry into the matter. The Acting Secretary is committed to ensuring that all DHS personnel uphold the principles of professionalism, impartiality and respect for civil rights and civil liberties, particularly as it relates to the exercise of First Amendment rights.”

    Sounds a little like the Obama bunch and their never ending crusade to prosecute reporters.

    Probably from reports of news media fomenting riot, attack, staging for cameras. Makes sense that the leftist media are in cahoots with the leftist hierarchy trying to destroy America.

    Often thought if no cameras were there, 95% of the anarchy and violence would stop. But put it on the CBS news and front-page headlines makes even the low-life's feel somehow special
