The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Huffington Post, CNN and now, of course, Fox News: these are the media organizations, superficially from across the political spectrum, which have said they will boycott a meeting with the DOJ’s embattled head, Eric Holder, on the topic of the DOJ’s (not to mention the NSA’s) Nixonian abuse of the first amendment and eavesdropping wherever and whenever it so chooses. The twist: the meeting is, paradoxically, supposed to be “off the record.” One wonders: was this the DOJ’s idea of being open and transparent – to hold a closed door meeting with the same media that it, allegedly, has been spying on, and thus put the media whose job is to report events – as in keeping the public informed – in a place where it can’t do precisely that? It is as if the Marx Brothers are writing the tragicomic script for a sequence of events that inevitably ends with Holder’s resignation and Obama’s washing his hands of the whole affair.
