The US Justice Department has clandestinely gained access to two months of telephone records of reporters and editors of The Associated Press in what the New York City-based news agency described as a \"massive and unprecedented intrusion.\" The records obtained by the Justice Department comprised outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York, Washington, and Hartford, Connecticut, and for the main number for the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery. In all, the US government obtained the records for more than 20 separate phone lines designated to AP and its correspondents in April and May of 2012. Press TV has conducted an interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, international lawyer, about the US Justice Department gaining access to telephone records of reporters and editors of The Associated Press.
