Which is worse, Trump yanking press pass or Obama surveilling reporters?

More disturbingly, the Washington Post reported in 2013 that Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) surveilled a Fox News reporter and obtained a search warrant for his e-mails while conducting an investigation into national security leaks in 2009. Although he wasn’t the only journalist targeted in such an investigation, the Fox News correspondent was singled out as a possible “aider, abettor, and/or co-conspirator,” a fact which, according to the Post, “distinguishes his case from the probe of the AP, in which the news organization is not the likely target.”

Your question is loaded. All of your questions are loaded.

Cool. So show us which part of the Constitution.

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which respect an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press
