Good news: White House launches its own news network
HotAir.com ^ | 5/20/09 | allahpundit

What could go wrong? Seriously, Tapper’s being a tiny bit paranoid about this in my opinion, but don’t let me stand in the way of a good hand-wringing about Obama starting his own nascent propaganda bureau. Besides, JT’s honest enough to wink at how much the media slobbers over The One:

Read the TV pool report: “Your Pool was not allowed to go over and shoot POTUS with the team shooting hoops. We protested loudly.”

Now we know why: Obama White House officials decided to do their own media report on the visit, complete with cuts, interviews, and chyrons identifying who’s speaking…

Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn’t flattering enough?

Is the goal to ultimately replace the pesky photographers who film what they want to and not what they’re told to (not to mention the annoying reporters who ask uncomfortable questions about, say, detainee policy and bank bailouts)?

If that’s the goal, it’s a monster scandal. But, er, this isn’t exactly the smoking gun that proves it. All things considered, for sheer probative news value, this clip falls short of even the Barney video Christmas card . Just further proof of how right — and awesomeJames Harrison is.

Has Joseph Goebbel’s been resurrected from the dead to honor the current Fuhrer of the clueless Motherland and to lie to the people???

“Good news: White House launches its own news network”

What, CNN, NPR and MSNBC are not enough? Chris Mathews will not be happy with only 6 million a year to slant the news and Oberman gets 9 mill - come-on you need to leave some of the stuff in the private sector.

So is Jake Turdtapper finally going to actually report fairly about Chairman O?

Gee, one would figure having ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/PBS/NPR/MSNBC was enough for them.

The MSM is going to be in for a shock when they are all canned and replace by the "official" Al Obama White House network.

If someone pulled the plug on the ‘prompter, would it be a Constitutional crisis?

The Whitehouse has had this channel since January 20, 2009. They incorporate videos on their whitehouse.gov web site.

Didn’t Al Gore start his own channel a few years ago, but no one watches it?

Hell, they already have several news networks, newspapers, and thousands of bloggers acting as their propaganda machine. They don’t feel they are ‘good’ enough?

I bet this entire thing will hurt the MSMs feelings...

I wonder if we have a 'Vice 'Prompter', in the event something should happen to the 'prompter in office.

Why is this necessary? Don’t the networks cheerlead and spin enough for this guy? Maybe he expects his economics to bankrupt them so he will need his own TASS or GRANMA.

Government-run media, government-run auto companies...Obama shows too many signs of fascism.
