If you were under impression that the White House’s suppression of media coverage was limited to the ObamaCare negotiations, think again. Some protestors showed up at Obama’s recent visit to the Bay area, and a reporter from the SF Chronicle took a short video. So, what was the White House response? Banishment for the press pool:
White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country from the pool of journalists covering presidential visits to the Bay Area for using now-standard multimedia tools to gather the news.
And it gets worse:
What’s worse: more than a few journalists familiar with this story are aware of some implied threats from the White House of additional and wider punishment if Carla’s spanking became public.
Here’s the video:
Michelle Malkin asks a cogent question: “Maybe it’s finally time to put those drool buckets away, MSM?” Don’t hold your breath. My favorite line about this latest example of Obot hypocrisy is as follows:
They told me if I voted for John McCain, ‘we would soon see the government quash new media reporting to control the message…and they were right!’
A little tragic irony to start your weekend.
