Most Transparent Administration To Have An Off-The-Record Meeting With The Press!!!


From Breitbart….

US Attorney General Eric Holder will reportedly meet this week with Washington bureau chiefs at major media outlets to brief them on how the Justice Department deals with journalists who work with leakers. Michael Calderone of Huffington Post reports, “It’s not yet certain exactly when the meeting (or meetings) will take place, but a Justice Department official confirmed to The Huffington Post that it would be sometime over the next two days.” Invitees will include Huffington Post Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim.

The discussion will be off the record.

I’m wondering if either group really understands why society needs a free press.  It really does society no benefit if the press won’t share with the people.

    This is the second meeting. The first was in very early May. Sounds like the journos didn’t quite get the message and some more stroking is required. The AP scandal has really gotten up there nose, it looks like.

    Just received my latest copy of The Economist, here is the cover. Ouch.

    A smell of desperation. When you are the Democrat dream President and you can’t keep the Celestial Chorus on side you are in a bad way.

    But the bad news just keeps coming, AP and others are reporting “You’re Going to Lose Your Health Insurance”

    After several years of spinning for the Democrats and Barack Obama the liberal media has decided to come clean and tell you what you can expect from Obamacare. And you’re not going to like it. Many Americans are going to lose their plans after all.

    Maybe the press should pay closer attention to what the public thinks of their cheer leading…

    “Averaging 539,000 viewers in primetime and 175,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, MSNBC suffered double-digit drops from last May — down a respective 20 and 19 percent. Losses were less substantial in total day, down 10 percent to an average 346,000 viewers and down 7 percent to 115,000 adults 25-54, while all other nets pulled growth in multiple categories.

    The soft start for All In With Chris Hayes has not helped. Hayes, down 32 percent in total viewers from The Ed Show last May, has offered a poor lead-in for MSNBC’s primetime flagship, The Rachel Maddow Show, at 9 p.m. The show delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in September 2008 (717,000 total viewers) and its second lowest with adults 25-54 (210,000). Maddow was topped by typical time slot victor Sean Hannity and CNN’s Piers Morgan.”

    FOX continues to trounce the ‘competition’.
