WASHINGTON - Fox News officials reacted with outrage last week to the revelation that the Justice Department had closely scrutinized the newsgathering practices of its reporter James Rosen as part of a leak investigation. But federal prosecutors sent an e-mail to Rosen and a certified letter to Fox's parent company in 2010 notifying them that the government had seized phone records for five numbers associated with the network, according to a law enforcement official. "The government provided notification of those subpoenas nearly three years ago by certified mail, facsimile, and e-mail," said the law enforcement official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing case.

IN 2014, TATTLE is going to make an attempt to write about more good things, more positive stories, more about how we're all on this floating blue ball together and we need to work together. Thank goodness we're off tomorrow. Maybe this will pass by Monday. But kicking off our year of good vibrations, "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson , son of Phil , went on Fox News' "All-American New Year" special Tuesday night and played the role of adult - choosing not to take the bait of hosts Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck and rip A&E or evil liberals or even defend daddy Phil's comments about gays, happy pre-civil rights Southern blacks or the marital viability of 15-year-old girls.

TRENTON - The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey said Monday that it would likely drop a lawsuit filed earlier in the day against Gov. Christie seeking records that confirm he met with the head of Fox News last year. The ACLU filed the lawsuit Monday on behalf of a reporter for Gawker Entertainment L.L.C., saying the governor's office had issued a blanket refusal to release any records pertaining to the meeting. After the governor's office confirmed the September 2010 meeting, the ACLU relented.

WASHINGTON - In another case of the Obama administration's investigating classified information improperly disclosed to reporters, the government is prosecuting a State Department expert on North Korea in a probe that appears to step into uncharted territory - by declaring that a journalist is committing a crime in disclosing leaked information. During the investigation of State Department adviser Stephen Kim, law enforcement officials obtained a search warrant for some private e-mails of James Rosen, the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News.

"NO ONE SAYS news has to be boring," says Fox News correspondent and producer Jesse Watters, who'll be out to demonstrate that tonight at 8 p.m. on "Watters World," the second in a series of monthly specials he's doing during the 2016 election cycle. An expansion of the segment Watters has long done for "The O'Reilly Factor," the series is likely to include some of his trademark interviews with unsuspecting - and frequently uninformed - pedestrians. Watters, who grew up in Philadelphia, spoke with Ellen Gray about his not-so-conservative roots, his love of history and what people on the street most often ask him. What can you tell me about your time in Philly?

Rahm Emanuel once sent a dead fish to a live pollster. Now he's put a horse's head in Roger Ailes' bed. Not very subtle. And not very smart. Ailes doesn't scare easily. The White House has declared war on Fox News. White House communications director Anita Dunn said that Fox is "opinion journalism masquerading as news. " Patting rival networks on the head for their authenticity (read: docility), senior adviser David Axelrod declared Fox "not really a news station. " And chief of staff Emanuel told (warned?

In the Age of Obama, Fox News is thriving. The conservative news cabler has forged a ratings-rich bond with an audience that feels ignored and under siege as Democrats dominate Washington. And nobody speaks to that audience with more passion, more empathy, than ex-Philadelphian and Fox newcomer Glenn Beck. Stocky and stentorian, easily moved to tears for his country (Comedy Central's Jon Stewart has mocked his emotionality), Beck knows his audience: "I tell my viewers, 'Keep a journal.

Here is an excerpt from columnist Dick Polman's blog, "Dick Polman's American Debate. " Watch this page for Polman high points - and check out the blog. At the risk of riling the liberal netroots, I question the Democratic Party's decision Friday to stiff Fox News by canceling a Fox-hosted presidential candidates debate slated for August in Nevada. The Nevada Democrats, led by home-state Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, had originally agreed to let Fox News cohost and broadcast the event; they saw it as a way for the '08 presidential candidates to reach out to red-state voters.

The Bill O'Reilly truthism scandal is dead. It's well and truly over despite an ever-growing list of allegations that the Fox News commentator misrepresented events during his career as a TV journalist while covering the aftermath of the Falkland Wars, the troubles in Northern Ireland, and the Nicaraguan Contras, not to mention the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It will soon be forgotten even if new accusations arise daily. For people who matter - O'Reilly's fans and his employers - the question of whether he lied is essentially moot.
