News Organizations Decline Meeting with Holder

Attorney General Eric Holder's "plans to sit down with media representatives to discuss guidelines for handling investigations into leaks to the news media have run into trouble," CNN reports.

The New York Times, the Associated Press and CNN will all decline the invitation unless its on-the-record.

Andrew Sulivan: "It was no doubt meant as an act of reconciliation and dialogue; but it backfired, and rightly so. If my emails had been searched by the DOJ, I'd be eager to talk to the man who authorized, in the case of James Rosen, a potentially criminal warrant. But I'd want that talk to be open, clear and accountable. To try to address the question of secret government intrusion into the press in secret is like something out of a John Le Carre novel."
