Media Snubs Holder

The embattled Attorney General of the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in America history, Eric Holder, has decided to finally chat with members of the press.  Of course, these conversations will be off the record!

Apparently, Holder didn’t get the memo — when stuck in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.

The once fawning press turned belligerent as Fox, the AP, CNN, CBS, NBC (!), the New York Times, the Huffington Post, among others refuse to attend this charade.  Politico and ABC will be there — what else are they doing anyway.

Shortly after the flurry of refusals , DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse tweeted the following:

POTUS asked AG to review how leak investigations are done but some in the media refuse to meet with him. Kind of forfeits your right gripe.

Predictably, this was like putting gasoline on the fire!  Does Woodhouse’s statement count as intimidation or just d-baggery?  Perhaps a special prosecutor could sort all this out.
