Obama to local/metro papers: How ya like me now, chumps?
michellemalkin.com ^ | 5/18/11 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 05/18/2011 9:12:47 AM PDT by Nachum

It’s time for the MSM to put its drool buckets in permanent storage.

In the past month, we’ve had:

– The Pleasanton (CA) Weekly bullied by the White House press shop over a benign article that irked the administration because it made Michelle Obama look snooty.

– The San Francisco Chronicle punished by the White House because a print pool reporter used a cell phone to record video of protesters at an Obama Bay Area fundraiser.

And now, the Boston Herald has been spanked by the White House for…running a front-page op-ed by Mitt Romney:

The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news “fairly.”

So the Herald was thrown out of the ‘pool’ by the WH for printing an article saying the WH unfairly throws some newspapers out of the ‘pool’.

No sympathy at all for the press sycophants. They created this monster now they can enjoy their turd sandwiches.

I am glad MM documented Obama’s partisan hackery with the press.

BUMP!

Fascists. First, they suppress the opposition by denying press coverage. And now that they apparently can’t get the high rollers to back them like they did in ‘08, they’ll use gnagster arm-twisting tactics to not award contract unless contractos acknowledge political contributions. then we’ll let all the illegals in to fill the giant sucking sound of of independents who’ve run screaming from this clown. And cap it off with a dozen new decks of race cards to play for the next two years.

If they don’t like what is said about them we all know the truth hurts..here is a great writer that tells everything about the scums in the white house..

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=288657#ixzz1Jxz2lPuD

At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, “Get used to it” – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to “get a more fuel-efficient car.”

The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington. And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they’re spending and living large at taxpayer expense – opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf.

Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States. The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential – which is why it’s so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order “to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice – but we don’t have to sacrifice the America we believe in.”

This is just a portion of what this writer said and it is the truth so the Muslim and his family will be very unhappy about this too..

My gosh, you are SO right about that. The MSM will carry a lot of water and swallow a lot of crap to protect the Democrat. But they won’t sit for having the bird flipped in their faces on a daily basis.

I’m sure the other papers/newsmedia will stand up for their fellow media types (rolling eyes)

I don’t agree. There probably aren’t that many editorialists or teleprompter readers of the evening news that can’t attribute a hefty sum of their salary back to Soros these days. And they know exactly what Soros expects for that money.

“because it made Michelle Obama look snooty.”

No, it’s Moochelle’s snootiness that makes her look snooty.

The Press is like a battered wife; they’ve been beaten for the past two years by an idiot who’s never had a real job and even though he treats them like ****, they beg and plead with him to come back and that they’ll behave.

When is somebody going to trot out the term “ENEMIES LIST” and use it on a daily basis?

LBJ comes to mind, he tried to silence lots of people, most famously Tommy Smothers, but I’m sure he was not the only one. This was back when there were three TV networks chanting in unison.

I can imagine FDR doing this, but most of his media control efforts can be blamed on the War To End All Wars.

The worst punishment for an ego like obama is to be ignored.

These papers whould just not write anything about him at all.

Never write anything about his campaigning or his whistlestops. Don’t cover his press conferences or speeches.

If it catches on, it will cause him to implode.

Well, THAT didn't take long.

I wonder, will they use cotton or the brown recycled paper kind?
