Or those is the media believed Obama would be easier to own then Hillary - he was an unknown on the national scene. I’d not put it past power-hungry journalists to think they held as much power with Hillary as they were ever going to get and Obama gave them the opportunity to own another politician.
Now they’ve learned he can’t be owned. He has no loyalty except to himself. He’s not going to let the media control him or his policies and they resent him for it.
I’ve not made up my mind if pro-Hillary journalists are gaining more power or if the media has finally sickened of Barack. Something is going on though.
The foremost thing to remember is that Hillary is a creature of New York City. Period. It is her power base. It is not a conspiracy theory to state that her ultimate base is the secular Jewish community in particular.
Barack Obama has gone a little too far for their tastes in kissing Muslim butt. He is unreliable for looking out for their interests (political and commercial), unlike Hillary.
The Journolist exposure is part of the process of getting the press back onto the reservation. That includes the more radical Jewish reporters who made up the bulk of Journolist.
