No Lock-Out Coverage for Obama in NY Times, But Bush's Door Flub Was Front-Page News
NewsBusters ^ | 3/25/11 | Clay Waters

Posted on 03/25/2011 4:15:31 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama arrived home to the White House on Wednesday from his five-day trip to Latin America and found himself locked out of the French doors to the Oval Office, as captured by several news organizations. My Media Research Center colleague Tim Graham reminded me that back on Nov. 21, 2005, the New York Times published on its front page a photo of President George W. Bush making a face after trying to leave a press conference in Beijing through a locked door, accompanied by an article that mentioned the gaffe.

Of course, the NY Times does not report anything that makes their hero look bad. But they aren’t biased though LOL

Just image google “George Bush door” and you’ll get a hundred hits for the photo.

Yeah, I remember the GBW lockout. The news of Barry was how cool he solved the issue.

The media is becoming more of a joke every day.

Complete breakdown of all order. Objectivity out the window. They’re aiming for the lowest common denominator audience and feeding them garbage.

Yelling fire in a crowded theater, except the “theater” is the whole country.

The media is just a few steps from doing what the Rwanda national media did in 1994. I think there’s every reason to expect that they will do it. It’s only a matter of time.

What I love is the door was locked because the WH wasn't expecting Barry!

I guess he isn't considered that important at the WH.

I bet they know where Valerie Jarrett is.

If only the locks were changed while he was off f’ing around in RIO at taxpayer’s expense and no one told him he was fired.

Thanks Nachum. This is because the NY Slimes is of, by, and for partisan media shills.

Why would Tass Light report anything that could be seen as a threat to the Communist Party?

The Bush video was very funny. I still enjoy it, and I’m a big Bush fan.

With a nonchalant stroll and a whistle, the US president walked past another set of locked French doors before he was finally able to gain access to his seat of power.

Obama tried to walk into a White House window early in his time in office. He couldn’t tell a French door from a window. I saw it here on FreeRepublic, but it got litle or no leftist media attention. We would still be seeing it if a republican president had done it.

I think George W. handled his situation perfectly. He didn’t get rattled and even made a joke about trying to escape, which made the reporters laugh WITH him, not at him.He showed that he has a human side and can even laugh at himself, unlike Barry, who is FULL OF HIMSELF.

Umm... I don’t think anybody expects a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party USA to handle things any differently.
(shrug) It’s just the way it is.

I do appreciate Newsbusters reminding people of it, though.
