SF Chronicle - White House Lying
Drudge ^

Posted on 04/29/2011 8:14:14 PM PDT by MindBender26

Update: Chronicle responds after Obama Administration punishes reporter for using multimedia, then claims they didn't

Update: In a pants-on-fire moment, the White House press office today denied anyone there had issued threats to remove Carla Marinucci and possibly other Hearst reporters from the press pool covering the President in the Bay Area.

Chronicle editor Ward Bushee called the press office on its fib:

Sadly, we expected the White House to respond in this manner based on our experiences yesterday. It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban, and then recanted to say our reporter might not be removed after all.

The Chronicle's report is accurate.

If the White House has indeed decided not to ban our reporter, we would like an on-the-record notice that she will remain the San Francisco print pool reporter.

I was on some of those calls and can confirm Ward's statement.

Messy ball now firmly in White House court

So, SF Chronicle—Are you going to continue licking the Imposter’s toes after all this?

Do you really wonder, as your next article down the page suggests, why the British royals didn’t invite Hussein and Michelle to their wedding celebration?

The Obama administration has been caught telling numerous lies to the White House press corps. Up until now the press corps has not called out the administration. I wonder what’s changed.

Some may wonder how an off-the-record conversation became reportable.

The “rules” say that if a reporter catches the person making statement lying to him or her, then the whole event, including the fact that it was a lie becomes reportable.

Rule #17: Never pick a fight with an entity that buys ink by the traincar-load, or electricity by the megawatt!

All I see is Jericho. All I see are WALLs falling down all around the anointed Messiah.

He really screwed up this time. He thinks he is so ‘all powerful’ that he can spit in the face of the very people who got him elected?

Bad move.

Even the Left-wing media is catching up to his dictatorial manner. I don't see any more Peace Prizes in his future.

The man is seriously mentally ill. He is a danger to himself and to all of us. He really is. Too high, Too fast. It wrecked him.

Interesting that this is all happening right after the official birth certificate release that clearly shows that he is not qualified to be president.

Obama is supposed to have a billion dollars to get reelected with.

Yet he still implodes over a little cell phone video.

You got that right.

These people would eat a crap pie served by a Democrat President.

A little grousing now, just to show the world they aren't the toadies they really are, then back to being fully inserted up his south end.

It’s okay if Obama lied to voters.

It’s not okay when Obama lies about the media.

Wasn’t it Obama himself who wanted his supporters to become more familiar with, and use the latest technology ?

From way back (thank you, Sherman) I recall a quote from Jefferson that goes something like this ........

When a man puts himself forward for a public trust he forfeits any claims to privacy, for how can the public judge his fitness for that trust except through a knowledge of his private dealings. By the way, what was all that talk about transparency?

They shouldn't be surprised at this. It's part of a pattern.

"Let me be clear:" Obama's White House hates a free press.

Biden's people put a reporter in a closet. Obama doesn't do press Q&As with the regularity past presidents have. He'll make pronouncements and take one or zero questions. During the campaign reporters for papers that endorsed McCain were expelled from his plane.

Looks like a pattern from here.

In 2008 they said, "The Illinois senator has shown beyond a doubt he is the one to lead the nation in troubled times." I'm sure they'll find a way to still endorse him in 2012.

Late today, there were hints that the White House might be backing off the Carla Fatwa.

Fatwa???

Et tu, SF Chronicle?

Heh, heh. Welcome to the VRWC.

This is another campaign issue Palin can use against him. She’s the only one who brings this to the people’s attention and no wonder why they are afraid of her.
