Associated Press Sues FBI Over Fake News Story

I could understand suing the FBI if they were publicly posting fake news stories, but this was a sting using one fabricated news story e-mailed to one person. What do you think?

The Associated Press filed a lawsuit this morning, demanding the FBI hand over information about its use of fake news stories. The case stems from a 2007 incident regarding a bomb threat at a school. The FBI created a fake news story with an Associated Press byline, then e-mailed it to a suspect to plant malware on his computer.
