Former CBS News Correspondent Kimberly Dozier At Center Of AP/DOJ Story

The AP reports that the Department of Justice secretly seized phone logs from its reporters and editors, apparently tied to the reporting on a foiled terror plot.

“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters,” wrote AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, citing the severe Constitutional issues with the seizure.

Former CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier, now an intelligence and counterterrorism reporter for the AP, was one of the journalists who had their phone logs seized. Dozier was seriously inured in Iraq in 2006. She left CBS for the AP in 2010.
