That was what I thought when Katrina happened. Everyone was telling the President not to go to NOLA on the way to DC and I kept saying he needed to fly over from the Ranch, not because he could do anything, but because if he didn't the press would tear him a new one....

I hate that our President (and VP) have to think defensively in their decision-making, but they really do and unless the schools change, and the journalism environment with it, if the GOP remains in power then we have to get used to preempting the MSM and outflank them.

Kick them to the curb and HELP build up the new media by giving THEM the Junk Journalists access. The Junk Journalists live for access. Selling their product depends on getting info from the White House. The Admin should just kick these losers out. They are active enemies and should be cut right out of the loop. They have NO legal or moral authority. People have GOT to stop granting power to the failed Media it DOES NOT HAVE. Frankly people have to evolve out of their 1970s mindset. The Junk Journalists are not the 800 pound ape of your childhood. Right now they are surviving on inertia. There is a REASON their largest customer base is the over 55 demographic. The ONLY power they have is the one WE are granting them by taking their nonsense seriously!

That's right, Carolyn. Well said.

I would add only that "preempting the MSM" and outflanking them isn't really "defensive," because when done skillfully, it's not a matter of making the President look less-bad, but of making him look good. But that's a minor point.
