“There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.”

Ugh...er...The Obama Limits.

Yea, but the White House only controls the "legitimate" media ...

Indeed.

The democrats are enemies of the American people, and they must be removed from office!

There is nothing safe or trustworthy in any of these damn people, and I am fairly certain that our DOD knows it.

No surprise here. Even the lovely beautiful Andrea Mitchell complained that the American media was kept away from O during his overseas forays.

Mao wold be proud!

I like the comment form one of the media drones that if she thinks that campaigns could be more QUIET now??? After the win, let’s shut up the opposition. Two tools the left uses to shut up conservatives: charges of racism, charges of uncivil discourse. These are transparent Alinsky tools that have nothing to do with racism and civil discourse.

I wasn’t fully focused on this boring hag, but might she have meant that what was going OUT to the press was controlled? Educate me, someone.

Yes, precisely. Obama didn’t do interviews. He produced soundbites that were repeated in the MSM. Consequently he was not subject to the normal level of media scrutiny. His positions, background, qualifications, etc. were not challenged. The only media outlets I know of that complained at the time was FOX, especially Bill O’Reilly.

I agree. I don’t know why I watch the Sunday morning talk shows. The media elite talking about what the political elite have planned for the rest of us.....
