President Obama spoke this afternoon at the National Defense University. The bulk of the speech was focused on national security, but for a few minutes, the President weighed in on the investigations the Justice Department has conducted involving journalists, including Fox News correspondent James Rosen and the Associated Press . Obama says that Attorney General Holder has agreed to review the guidelines and talk to media outlets, and will report back to the President in July. “I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable,” Obama said, adding that “Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.” The full text of his comments on the press are after the jump. continued… New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jobs in media .

( her name is meg ) Among the reasons given in support of payday loans — short-term, high-interest loans intended to get the borrower through to the next paycheck — is that they ultimately provide a net good to the economy, allowing the borrower to keep spending and earning interest for the lender. But a recent report casts some doubt on that belief. According to a recent white paper [ PDF ] from the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, the huge fees — the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau calculates the average APR on a payday loan is 392% — may make billions for lenders, but would be better for the economy if spent elsewhere. Writes the Insight Center: The economic activity generated by payday lending firms receiving interest payments is less than the lost economic activity from reduced household spending. Specifically, each dollar in interest paid subtracts $ 1.94 from the economy through reduced household spending while only adding $ 1.70 to the economy through spending by payday lending establishments. As a result, for each dollar of payday lending interest paid, an estimated 24 cents is lost to the U.S. economy. For example, a payday loan that carries an interest payment of $ 40.00 causes a loss of $ 9.60 — nearly one-quarter of the fee — from the economy. The researchers calculate that for 2011, during which payday lenders took in an estimated $ 3.3 billion in interest, the net loss to the U.S. economy was $ 774

The bond market tried to warn us about March's grim jobs report . And it's still warning us that the economy is not in great shape. Ten-year Treasury note yields fell to their lowest levels since December on Thursday, a day before the Labor Department reported the weakest job growth in nearly a year . Yields fell even further after the jobs report was released Friday morning, dipping briefly below 1.7 percent, the lowest since Dec. 12, according to data tracker Tradeweb. Bond yields and prices move in the opposite direction, so that yields fall when prices rise. Falling bond yields suggest investors are running for safety in the bond market, not long after stock prices jumped to record highs . The recent stock-market run, and a growing appetite among mom-and-pop investors to buy stocks, led to a lot of silly talk earlier this year about a "Great Rotation" out of bonds and into stocks, after years of caution. That the Great Rotation was a myth is now plain to see. Typically the battle between stocks and bonds is zero-sum: Stocks rise when bonds fall, and vice versa. That's because bond yields tend to fall when the economic outlook is poor and rise when investors are feeling friskier. There have been several occasions in the past few years when both have risen together, as they have recently. That typically ends badly for stocks, as the bond market's signal ends up being the correct one. Sure enough, the recent trend of bond yields
