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.”
Wow, I had no idea the Daily Caller wielded this kind of influence in the halls of Congress.
Here’s the audio:
By “you guys” I guess Holder could have been spouting off about select members of the media in general, because it’s not just the Daily Caller that’s taking the blame for this administration’s failings. CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson has been yelled at as well.
The entire modus operandi of this administration is to cast blame for their mistakes, flubs and incompetency — whether it’s Obama on the lousy economy (“it isn’t my initiatives that are flawed, it’s that America has gotten too lazy to properly implement them”) or Holder on Fast & Furious (“if you reporters wouldn’t tell people about it there would be no scandal”).
