Most people don’t think the DOJ was trying to bully the media by secretly taking reporters’ phone records

From Rasmussen:

42% think the Justice Department’s actions were chiefly an effort to intimidate the media. But nearly as many (38%) think Justice was primarily acting out of a concern for national security. Twenty percent (20%) are not sure.

It’s worth noting that this poll was taken before news broke Monday that a Fox News reporter also had his emails, phone records and whereabouts tracked by the Justice Department.
