HOWARD KURTZ, CNN: Bill Plante, you have been patrolling that building since Ronald Reagan. Does the White House press look self-involved and whiny, as I said earlier, complaining about this Tiger incident?
BILL PLANTE, CBS NEWS: We have gotten used to being called whiny lap dogs. I've heard it for 30 years. But this is not about a picture of Tiger Woods. This is about access to the president. And access to the president has been cut and pushed and curtailed over every administration I've covered. Here's the nub of it, Howie, this administration has the tools to reach people on their own. They don't need us as much. And to the extent that they're able to do that, they're undercutting the First Amendment, which guarantees a free press through many voices.
If they put out their own material, it's state-run media. (CNN's Reliable Sources, February 24, 2013)

so what? at this point the little babies of the press, self-involved spoiled ignorant little asses wouldn’t recognize a fact if it was biting them in the butt, they have reported opinions as facts for so long. disgusting.
Maybe the loser “media” will realize how absolutely insignificant they are since they have divorced themselves from the truth.
We have to do something about this darn 1st amendment! People with no training running around with assault words and high capacity columns has to stop.
If it would save only one life! /s
So Plante calls Obama “whiny” and then goes on an extended whiny rant. You can’t make this stuff up.
Truth is that weekend wasn’t about Obama and Tiger Woods.
It was really about Obama and Reggie Love.
And the liberal media whiners know it.
“What difference does it make?”
“It was really about Obama and Reggie Love.
And the liberal media whiners know it.”
The media knew about FDR and Lucy Mercer. Plus they never published photos of him in a wheelchair.
The media knew about JFK and his string of women.
The media knew about RFK and Teddy’s dalliances.
The media knew about Bill Clinton’s numerous affairs and worse.
The media knows about Barack.
The end justifies the means.
“State-run media” indeed. Rush will make this the clip of the day.
They’re quite significant, actually.
You don’t think the NYT and WaPa editorial boards influenced Justice Roberts ObamaCare decision?
No, I think the threat was much more mafia than that.
What difference does it make?
Exactly. Good grief, there isn't a dimes worth of difference.
Hey, Bill Plante, didn't you see Steve Kroft? Sickening state-run media worthy of Pravda. Or Leni Riefenstahl.
The term “Useful Idiots” comes to mind.
They are now no longer needed.
Nope, not a peep about these, but damn it, they didn't get to take a photo of a golf game!?!?!?! The First Amendment is in jeopardy!
