"Who knows what kind of irrevocable harm this has caused," Maddow said, adding that confidential sources would probably question speaking to the AP again, after knowing that the Justice Department obtained the news organization's phone records.

Maddow said that while a senator, Obama supported a federal shield law and co-sponsored 2007 legislation that was eventually killed by a Republican filibuster. Once he became president, the only actions Obama took surrounding federal shield law legislation was to limit that protection when it came to issues of national security.

Maddow means this kind of damage:

1. She's mad Obama got caught
2. It means all those crazy right wingers who say the government is too big and too powerful are actually right.

On 2, she and her ilk over at MSNBC do NOTHING but label anyone to the right of Marx as crazy, racist and stupid. It's a whole lot easier to debate someone when you can just dismiss them right from the get-go as a loser and then you can proceed to ridicule them via ad homimem.

But guess what? Obama just blew away so many of the left's narratives they've been building Maddow has to go out and actually mount a defense of the indefensible. Given that she lacks the skills or the IQ that's a daunting challenge.
