New York Times Gets It Wrong on Fast & Furious

A story in the New York Times wrongly claims Speaker John Boehner has “opened direct negotiations with the Justice Department aimed at resolving a dispute over subpoenaed information related to the botched gun-trafficking investigation dubbed Operation Fast and Furious.” This is simply untrue.

The New York Times never contacted the Speaker’s office about the story, which is factually incorrect. Here is what we told the Times after seeing the story online:

This story shows how the mainstream media is ignoring this scandal and covering up for the Department of Justice. Staff for the Speaker, other leadership offices, and Chairman Issa have been encouraging Attorney General Holder’s staff to comply for weeks or months to no avail, but there have certainly been no direct talks between the Speaker and Attorney General, and the department is still stonewalling.”
