Who will investigate the government leaks to David Axelrod’s pals at the Chicago Tribune?

Thomas Barton, Investigative Reporter

During the news about the Obama regime spying on the press, don't neglect this question: Why hasn't the Inspector General asked John Chase and the Chicago Tribune who in the federal government is leaking sealed information to them?

Why, after assigning a host of federal agents and spending piles of federal dollars to investigate Rod Blagojevich and corruption in Illinois, did Chase and the Tribune get to pull the plug on the federal wiretaps with impunity? Is anyone asking that question besides IP2P? No. Why not?

And, why was the Tribune, and only the Tribune, given access to the Blagojevich wiretap recordings that were never made public? We’re wondering if David Axelrod is still the de facto editor of the paper, and if former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald's image as an “Elliot Ness crime-fighter” was all fabricated by the media - led by the Tribune?

Throughout the Blago saga has the Trib only reported what they are told to report by the feds?

And finally, why is the Office of the Inspector General concerned about some leaks and not about others? So many questions. So few answers.
