Everybody I'm Neil Cavuto went box on top of the administration going over the -- this little tweaks.
From some DNC twits.
Criticizing all the media companies opting out of that -- the record beating attorney general Eric Holder to discuss ironically this whole secrecy -- And I quote.
-- -- AG to review how leak investigations are done but some in the media refused to meet with them.
Kind of -- your right to gripe.
Kind of makes me wonder how after reading a threatening tweet like that more or less show up or shut up.
So many news organizations still opted out -- all decided there's bullying has gone on long enough.
-- -- -- Shelves -- -- -- down along with Adam Lashinsky and Charlie Gasparino.
Charles -- that that -- -- Says -- I wasn't just another example the strong arm tactics in the bottom line everyone watching -- those bad news for everybody.
In the dovetails into what we -- H -- set to secretary going up the companies that they regulate to ask for money of course are gonna give up.
The RSB will -- around like a giant club to smash anyone who doesn't agree with the Obama agenda.
Let's say it did these guys a judge jury and executioner and they wonder why so one of the wanna come to sit down for power laden getting to me Ben Stein what.
-- that the tone of that and then in the news organizations that said the heck -- that.
But the tone and that tanner continues in the IRS case a -- as recently as a couple of weeks ago they were still.
Well what I don't understand is this the mr.
-- -- going to say we're going to go after you with a club and then we're gonna come out do a nice.
Coffee and competency.
And be friendly wherever you can talk about anything we've said.
How does that suddenly make him into a nice guy I mean the all -- is the media is not to be told things and then -- have a secret I mean that answer be to -- I misunderstanding what media is media is to connect.
The government with the people -- you have a break in the connection it's not really the media anymore but the bigger.
-- problem here I guess that's our guests Reno -- Are you had -- -- -- secrecy let's have a secret meeting -- -- -- -- I mean as a reporter I mean that I may be speaking out of turn to me because I know Fox News and did not participate in this.
They -- thugs -- People come to me all the time and say we just talk off the record but.
And I -- down on what I do listen to the evidently enemy within at a time and and right but you know here's an -- set ground rules -- say just so you know when you talk off direct me I don't forget about -- the minute you know your secrecy you I.
-- I won't see I don't I -- the -- a source but I think there is something to be said police say we're sitting here you're hinting that you will quickly dropped out off the record province now I -- negotiate that I don't have to forget it in the strictest term I wanna I wanna hear what you have to say I can use that information I am I believe if not -- I clearly it's always worth and maybe -- you agree with me it's always worth sitting down.
And listening to somebody it even if they even there pleaded at their complete dogs like these guys.
And that the well we'll wait and that's -- -- let me tell you I've dealt with us probably like yesterday you know.
The -- with all due respect I I I -- I understand your point of view and I understand it I've done and do as immediate -- that I you can -- -- -- the -- But if this is about that being secretive.
How do you improve as the good guys and now we're gonna -- Always a good -- but says that's what the problem I I wanna he'll let me I want to hear how they explain what they've done at a I -- data points.
Well yes of course I mean.
We're where would the only mistake we're making here is to think that there's anything new here there's one new thing here and that's the Twitter exists analysis of -- somebody can.
Tweet out there thought at that at the -- only -- you I think that was admit let the over the top to assurance that.
Circled the keys everything and we just are motivated driven anyway and it charge -- that Cincinnati office has just been promoted.
It keeps a -- would these this kind of stuff what's happening as recently as a couple of weeks ago in the middle of this dust up to date -- -- -- any of this -- there's.
I haven't got a free conclude that you understand here you know -- I know -- they keep doing this stuff and compounding decision by continuing to PRC and.
Could they don't think it's a sin because they think -- -- -- doing the right exactly.
Exactly and the reason Charlie I disagree with you because you know what I've had witnessed -- -- To be telling us terrain suited -- -- does -- -- -- we call the other guy Charles and I've had I've had people sources.
How are not sources people that I had to deal with writing about back in the day treat me like under dirt and then try and make amends by calling me -- to have T and Cronkite I don't at all I'll have radical way I had.
People coal but it could you would get -- day ahead of downhill and a lot more than he's actually somebody that people attack me go to my -- not just my boss.
When I was -- at the Wall Street Journal the guy that ran the Wall Street Journal Peter Kahn attacked me I will still sit down with them attack me -- try to get me fired.
Eliot Spitzer tried to get -- life and I will still don't know it's -- it's I'm a reporter.
Well and it's -- -- yeah.
-- -- -- Right now Rupert I am not at all I'm not talking about tough you know I love your pig manure farms and -- and I'm glad I waited in the room and -- -- -- -- -- mugglenet I'm not yeah.
And I don't know I'm not OK I don't monsters and I will sit down with them.
And I will listen to that aren't that will be in a report I'm just saying if they're trying to muzzle you don't going to a meeting white -- have you cannot get a period.
-- could various levels -- we would you.
Why don't let the -- and how would you bet on in a fight mature independent.
Donate it would have indicated it would be utterly but Charles payments are taken as mine.
Do you think there is something else is so -- -- saying that that the you don't really have to.
You know but it gets -- the nuances of off the record sort of case studies of water no this is not just off threatens to stop the -- -- -- I don't think I think it's beyond a media sort of -- I think -- boxing into it did it's it's much greater than right I think part of a -- I think the narrative and an administration has contempt for congress has just for media has contempt for a lot of people remember what they -- that the auto -- -- that caught updating you Wall Street executives and only ended up doing was demonizing these people accidentally left.
Exactly I wouldn't mind having had I -- personally this congress when they I mean I would might have a shot up director renewing it would have told if you were at such a leading what was he stated -- -- to -- might as someone who breaks a lot of stories -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- deepest of the background I will not forget about -- -- minute walk out.
I marvel always we have people -- and I would try to get to the bottom of it the best -- can help that would that would help into my mind.
Look we have a we have a fantastic system -- our country where there is a ton of opportunity for government officials to be on the record in public right in front of the cameras.
As journalists we would always prefer to be on the record but to say.
That we will never sit down with the people we write about and and try to I -- What am I cannot density what -- -- understanding to Ben Stein's point.
Eat the whole thing was -- -- -- that secrecy around which.
The department was operating.
And why they are doing this for so long I don't -- and the whole -- not what I'll tell you dress that and and that is it itself triggering a secret meeting.
What part of that don't -- I'll tell you because grown up mature people can have all kinds of conversations he's trying to cover girl and it is another I'll have an audience in -- what -- Really can't tell you what -- updates are still did that says.
And the national bank -- and -- they -- what did you don't they had a.
Did you guys not doing a story your personal thing that that is currently and he heard enough -- immediate priority.

Little women and are going to be giving you.
Pardon me giving you right yeah -- -- preparation I don't use it.
