(Washington, DC)  --  Attorney General Eric Holder says the Justice Department will not prosecute journalists for doing their jobs.  In a Senate hearing, Holder said the Justice Department is rethinking its approach to investigating leaks of classified information.  He made the comment while talking about the controversy over the department's seizure of some reporters' phone records.  The Justice Department has also been accused of targeting Fox News reporter James Rosen.  Some Republicans have called on Holder to resign.  The Attorney General said, quote, "I have not done a perfect job;  I think I have done a good job, but I am always trying to do better."
