Beat the press Reporters reveal how the Obama administration threatens and controls the media
NY Post ^ | 3/3/13 | MAUREEN CALLAHAN

As coverage of last week’s flare-up between Bob Woodward and the White House devolved into the granular parsing of words and implications and extrapolations and possible intent, the larger point was roundly missed: the increasing pressure that White House correspondents feel when dealing with the Obama administration — to follow their narrative, to be properly deferential (!), to react to push-back by politely sitting down and shutting up.

I thought the WH, especially Michelle was AGAINST ‘bullying’.. Perhaps the media should start their own anti-bullying campaign.

Wish I had that cartoon from the Simpsons: Nelson pointing and saying "HA HA!"

Current media = nitwits = they are just now getting up to speed?!

They've been tools in Obama's tool box. Really? Are they just now realizing how they have been used....owned? Really?

Dopes.

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c--t, a--hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”


Whut?

The Obama Administration enacted a war on women?

The Obama Administration thinks women have no rights?

The Obama Administration wants to send women back to the 50s?


The Obama Administration said only Republicans do that...

And they did not report this abuse? That is because they are c... a...holes.

Maybe some of the millions of bullets bought by Obama and goons are for the press... We might not be the only ones on the trains.

Did you see this part of the story?

MSM butt kissing isn't going to help old school reporters... the ones worth respecting. Butt kissing never works with totalitarians... I feel for the young reporter who asked a serious question. She held old values - good values ... Obama's people called her names - including but not limited to 'c*unt'. Charming Chicago thugs - roughing up one of the few honest members of the press.

Read this - it's from the end of the article:

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c--t, a--hole.”

Partisan Media Shills will complete their takeover, no surprise there. Robert Reich launches a tirade about how the Tea Party has infiltrated every level of government in order to overthrow it, and no one ridicules him into self-imposed house arrest and internal exile. Watch for the PMS to pick up Reich's crazed BS as their latest meme. Thanks Nachum. and, just because I liked it:

Likely a reference to Sheryl Atkinson, the CBS reporter who had the temerity to pursue the "Fast & Furious" story.

Will do.

Welcome to the no-name list, well, I generally call it “The Usual Suspects”, because the original idea for the name was lame — “It’s News To Me”. There’s no theme to it, just politics, current events, occasional frivolity.
