Less than half describe AP-DOJ conflict as 'a scandal

News

Only 31 percent of Americans say the Justice Department's secret seizure of the phone records of Associates Press personnel meets the definition of "a scandal," according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

A large reason for that, however, is that most Americans (54 percent) say they haven't heard enough about the conflict to give it that label. Fourteen percent say it's "not a scandal."

Meanwhile, 72 percent say the government has a right to investigate news media outlets if there has been a suspected leak that may jeopardize national security.
