Holder's been smoldering about the Daily Caller -- Speaking Truth to Power is good, as long as the power is in the hands of a Republican. Otherwise, knock it off. That's what TheDC's Neil Munro and Matthew Boyle learned yesterday:They're getting under Holder's skin, that's for sure. He needs to go.
"Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder today demanded The Daily Caller stop publishing articles about the growing calls in Congress for his resignation because of the failed Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program. As Holder's aide was escorting the attorney general offstage following his remarks Tuesday afternoon at the White House, a Daily Caller reporter introduced himself and shook Holder's hand. The reporter asked him for a response to the growing chorus of federal legislators demanding his resignation. Holder stepped towards the exit, then turned around, stepped back toward the reporter, and sternly said, 'You guys need to — you need to stop this. It's not an organic thing that's just happening. You guys are behind it.'"
Which he said while literally finger-pointing.
It's not fair to hold public officials accountable for their actions, or lack of actions, even though they're Democrats. It hurts their feelings and you should be ashamed of yourself. Holder didn't say, "Why can't you guys be more like MSNBC?", but it was implied.
Hey, if he wants to give us credit for nudging him toward the door... Thanks!

If a scandal occurs in the White House and somebody reports it, is it the media's fault?
