Where is President Barack Obama and why in the hell hasn’t he met with The Daily Caller‘s Matthew Boyle yet?!
That’s the question on
everyone’s Boyle’s mind in a self-promotional email he sent to FBDC and God knows who else late last week (he tells us these type of emails go to “reporters, flacks and political types.”) “If President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder REALLY don’t have anything to hide here over Fast and Furious, why won’t they sit down and do an interview with me over it?” he asked in the email.
The question followed a series of links to stories Boyle has written on the “Fast and Furious” DOJ scandal. Several of the stories contain a brief description written by Boyle relating to Boyle, such as (emphasis ours):
- “Eric Holder refuses Fast and Furious interview, accuses me of throwing ‘STICKS AND STONES’”
- “It’s hardly the first time Holder has attacked me or The Daily Caller for reporting on Fast and Furious”
- “One of my stories sparked his first-ever and to this day only unsolicited letter to Congress about Fast and Furious”
Boyle has dominated coverage of Fast and Furious. He was cited by FNC’s Bret Baier on “Special Report” Friday as saying the DOJ’s priorites are “out of whack” on the issue.
But if you didn’t know Boyle owns the story: “Here’s Fox News segment where @BretBaier cites me on how Eric Holder’s DOJ priorities are out of whack…” he tweeted Saturday.
Back to the matter at hand: When is Boyle’s sit-down with the Prez?
“I haven’t heard from President Obama’s team on an interview about Fast and Furious,” Boyle told FishbowlDC when asked about the release he sent out. “I wonder why? If he’s got nothing to hide when it comes to that scandal, why not come on over to The Daily Caller offices for a quick interview? We’re two blocks from the White House and my schedule is flexible.”
You hear that, Mr. President?
