German police spies on journalists

In another blow for journalistic freedom in Germany, it’s been revealed today that the police has been wire-tapping journalists of tagesschau.de and NDR radio. This is apparently covered by paragraph 129a, one of those anti-terror laws that have done nothing to protect us, and everything to make everyday people’s life hell.

Link in German and some information in English (towards the end of the article).

This comes after last week’s revelation that police have been rifling through everybody’s mail. Link also in German, I’m afraid.
