Constitutional Right To A Free Press? Don't Count On It!

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..." - Amendment I of The U.S. Constitution

By now we know about the Dept. Of Justice's illegal actions undertaken against the AP (Associated Press) and the DOJ's excuse of "national security" (their blanket "reason" applied to anything they want so that We, The People will reason that anything done to keep us safe is allowable and excusable) but what about further unauthorized actions of the DOJ? We're now learning of other illegal acts the Dept. Of Justice has been directing toward other journalists, even going as far as to follow them about physically. Another thing that is concerning is the seizing of someone's e-mail correspondence...should that be considered as one's "papers" and therefore covered by an expectation of privacy? After all Amendment IV states:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated...."

We are truly witnessing and becoming victims of a Government out of control and ever more quickly careening towards Totalitarian Tyranny as it perceives itself and it's agents as "above The Law" and answerable to none. In fact the I.R.S. official (another federal agency spiraling into unjust undertakings and undue persecution of select targets) Lois Lerner will invoke her Fifth Amendment Right in her upcoming Congressional Hearing appearance which would imply that she was party to criminal activity, knows she was party to such, and when identified will refuse to accept her part in the accountability for said criminal activity. This seems to be the typical response of anyone in The Obama Administration including Barrack himself, to skirt along and dance around actually accepting responsibility for anything once their participation is some nefarious or questionable act is exposed. Such is always the established route of tyrannical crooks when captured, to see themselves being above The Law and answerable to none.
