Soul searching' for Eric Holder

The scandal resulting from a Fox News reporter having his whereabouts and communication records investigated by the Justice Department has left Attorney General Eric Holder with some "remorse," according to The Daily Beast.

On Tuesday Holder sent out invitations to news organizations to meet with him and "consider how we strike the right balance between interests of law enforcement and freedom of the press."

From the Beast's report:

Holder’s aides say he is encouraging a no-holds-barred conversation with the goal of updating and strengthening DOJ guidelines. But Holder’s own personal soul searching has already begun, with, among other things, the question of why he signed off on an affidavit that in retrospect he believed may have crossed the line.
