Back in 2005, the Old Media was all atwitter over a supposed plant reporter at a Bush press conference. The Old Media made a big deal out of this guy and used it to try and cast the Bush White House as employing some sort of underhanded control of information. Flash forward to today, President Obama held his Healthcare townhall in Green Bay, Wisconsin and it turns out that Obamas first spontaneous question from the audience sure seems like a plant in the same way as the previously mentioned situation in 2005.

The June 11 meeting on Healthcare, of course, was supposed to feature spontaneous questions for the president from the audience about a takeover of nearly 20% of the nations economy with his healthcare plans. But a closer look at this townhall in Green Bay, Wisconsin might disabuse anyone of the notion that spontaneous questions really were taken from the audience. Granted many feel that these sorts of events are wholly manufactured, anyway. But that isnt how Obama has been sold. Hes the serious one, the one that doesnt mess around, right?
