The Social Poets: WTF? DOJ Attorney Threatens Reporter At Public Hearing?: From Denny: Turns out that President Obama's "transparency in government" does not seem to apply to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and at a public hearing. Talk about obnoxious and a denial of the freedom of the press. A newspaper reporter from The Daily Iberian was actually denied his civil rights - and publicly by a DOJ attorney at a public meeting.
This is downright bizarre. Since when does the DOJ have the right to deny a reporter to record, take notes or quote one of their attorneys who is making public comments at a public hearing? That is exactly what happened. Who died and made the DOJ God? The arrogant attorney's name is Rachel Hranitzky and this happened in New Orleans, Louisiana.
