Eric Holder, who committed perjury when giving testimony to Congress about the AP-tapping scandal, has agreed to talk to the press. He only has one condition: it must be off-the-record, and no one outside of the room must ever know what happened.
In response, the New York Times has decided to boycott the presser, with Executive Editor Jill Abramson stating, "It isn’t appropriate for us to attend an off the record meeting with the attorney general."
Well, the Democrat party is none-too-pleased with the NY Times' stand. In fact, Democratic Party Communications Director Brad Woodhouse decided to not only lash out at the Times, but also at press rights as a whole.
Writing on Twitter, he declared that if the press does not want to attend the secret meeting that no one must ever know about, then they "forfeit [their] right gripe" about illegal activity that Eric Holder conducts:
Is @woodhouseb the world's dumbest human or just an ape of below average intelligence? twitter.com/woodhouseb/sta…

@woodhouseb It is people like you that are a big part of the reason I am no longer a #Democrat

However, Woodhouse's statement should not simply be written off as a stupid statement. Rather, it typifies the Obama White House's attitude that either you put up with what we do, you shut up, or else.
