Jerry Brown and his people DID NOTHING WRONG by recording conversations with reporters, the story is much ado about nothing.

I have never heard of a dumber, more inane story than the one the conservatives are trying to flout about Jerry Brown and the "secret" recordings his employees made when they were being interviewed by news reporters.

The same republican conservatives who complain that the media is biased against them, now complain if someone being interviewed decides to protect themselves by recording the interview.

This Jerry Brown "controversy" is completely politically motivated. If anyone thinks for a moment that it is or should be illegal to protect oneselves when being interviewed by a reporter by recording the interview, they are morons.

To be clear, reporters are neither perfect, nor will a reporter always take all the time they need to properly do a story because they have deadlines. Were a reporter to ever misreport or incorrectly quote an interviewee, who protects the person being interviewed? What if the reporter didn't make a proper recording of the interview so it is simply their word against the person they interviewed?

This is a republican smear campaign against Jerry Brown and I am sick and tired of BOTH SIDES always trying to make the other side look bad.

If everything that is said between a reporter and the person they are recording is "on the record" it becomes ridiculous to somehow imply that the actual recording of an "on the record" interview is illegal.
