Well, we didn’t have to consult the Delphic Oracle to see this coming did we? In response to all the heat the Obama administration has recieved after banning a reporter from the press pool, they did what they always do—lie:
The White House is denying that it threatened to exclude the San Francisco Chronicle from presidential events in its coverage area after one of its reporters recorded a video of singing protesters at a fundraiser last week that was restricted to print reporters.
But the reporter’s paper. the San Francisco Chronicle, says this is another White House whopper:
It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban …
Such is the behavior of “the most transparent White House in history.”
