How Come So Many People Are Howling for Holder's Head? 

 

Attorney General Eric Holder, under growing pressure from many in mainstream media and elsewhere for his "attacks" on the First Amendment in general, and reporters in particular, had a lifeline thrown to him awhile back by an unlikely combination -- Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz, on Fox News, May 30:   

 

"It's unprecedented. The degree of willingness of this administration to target a reporter for this network as an unindicted co-conspirator -- I mean, that is without precedent.  And unfortunately, I think it's part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights".

"I think President Obama needs to take responsibility and needs to tell the truth.  You know, in recent weeks, there are at least two instances of senior officials for the administration telling flat out falsehoods."    

 

Sen. Cruz was referring primarily to the recent news that Fox News reporter James Rosen was investigated in relation to his 2009 stories based in part on leaks about U.S. responses to "repeated provocations" by North Korea. Part of the problem for Rosen is that he unnecessarily revealed that the CIA had a source in North Korea then, though probably not now.
