Holder to Meet With Press on DOJ Journalism Guidelines...OFF THE RECORD

 Raw Story

Attorney General Eric Holder will meet with US news organizations after an uproar caused by the Justice Department secretly obtaining phone records of reporters while investigating news leaks.

Guidelines for investigations involving journalists are to be discussed, Holder’s office said Wednesday.

Holder “will hold meetings with several Washington bureau chiefs of national news organizations in the next two days” as part of the review of guidelines “governing investigations that involve reporters,” the Justice Department said.

The review, which President Barack Obama announced on May 23, is consistent with Holder’s “long standing belief that protecting and defending the First Amendment is essential to our democracy,” the statement said.

Wow, what a f*cking pig. Holder never met a corporate criminal he didn't like. How utterly despicable that he's been caught red-handed bugging the oh-so-corporate mouthpiece AP and now thinks he can dictate terms to the media and then he wants it off the record.

Meet with the Press? This criminal ought to be meeting with Bubba in a prison cell.
