There must be millions of Americans who were both shocked and delighted after seeing the “front page” of yesterday’s Huffington Post.
Now, after years of countless reports by PJ Media detailing the illegal actions, cover-ups and wrongdoings of Attorney General Eric Holder, this screenshot has earned a place of honor as the subject of our latest Tatler Photo Caption Contest.
What finally swayed this influential member of the left-leaning media to call for Holder’s resignation?
The front page post appeared after it was revealed by NBC News that Holder had signed off on a controversial and intrusive search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” violating the Espionage Act.
My guess is the day had finally arrived when the potential for the circumstances written about by Martin Niemoller in his famous WWII-era poem could not longer be ignored by the Huffington Post.
Let’s recall the poem’s first and last verses:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Socialist….
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
Or, was it because President Obama stated in a major speech, just hours before NBC broke the Holder news, that Holder was going to review Justice Department guidelines governing investigations involving journalists?
Perhaps it was the one-two punch of these two news events that finally caused the Huffington Post to agree with PJ Media that Holder is damaged goods and must resign.
So now it is time for PJ Media readers to submit captions for this Huffington Post screen shot from May 23, 2013. I know it will be difficult to stay within the contest rules of “be nice and stay classy because the media is watching.” (And here again are the winners from our last contest who did that rather well.)
However, at this time it is not about the media, but rather self-preservation and potential IRS audits. Who the heck cares what “the media” thinks anymore, anyway?
Have fun with this caption contest over Memorial Day weekend and remember that freedom is never free, especially for those who paid the highest price.
