Eric, Nation of Cowards, Holder's Huddle With Media On Press Freedom Will Be...
Off The Record..

Yeah, that's the ticket:

Gut-check time for the press: If they’re truly offended by the DOJ’s secret snooping on James Rosen and the AP, they won’t agree to attend Holder’s gladhanding session unless/until he agrees to make it on the record, right? Press freedom and government transparency are either important or they’re not. If they’re not, then yeah, an off-the-record session in which the powers that be privately assure a guild that they’re on their side will do just fine. Happens all the time in the Obama White House.
The news of a meeting between Holder and the bureau chiefs comes amid widespread criticism from journalists and civil liberties advocates over the DOJ’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and an accusation that Fox News reporter James Rosen could be part of a criminal conspiracy for his reporting.[More...]

You better go too, Brad says so:



Twitchy has More

Most transparent administration evah..

Update: AP also sez thanks but no thanks

Update II: WaPo, Sure thing we'll go.
