The story within the story on the Operation Fast & Furious cover-up

Why are Department of Justice and White House personnel yelling and screaming at a reporter over her coverage of the Operation Fast & Furious cover-up? Via Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith requests Special Counsel on possible Eric Holder perjury:

[Laura] Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?
[Sharyl] Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] Eric Schultz. Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House.”

It isn’t just the obvious perjury of Eric Holder about when he knew of the program.  It is how these high level Obama officials assume that they can tell the media what they can and can’t report — as if that’s what they’ve been doing since he’s been in office!
