Very good point. Also, the media uproar about that was much more pronounced than what we are seeing now over multiple cover ups and abuses of power. The media is absolutely incapable of being objective and fair anymore. Incapable. When you put a hateful ideologue in power, and take away media oversight, this is what you get.
Don’t take this as a complete defense of the MSM.
But when a press conference happens, it’s well known the it’s the White House that decides beforehand who will be allowed questions.
I’ve read a number of reports saying basically “They told us if we asked that question, we’d be cut off.”
Combine that with the thought that maybe they would have a better “relationship” with liberal type reporters, and you can see the outcome, it’s right in front of you.
Combine that with the idea that most reporters are as spineless as Boehner.
Combine that with the idea that even if a government employee does something wrong, they are unlikely to get fired, and if they are fired, they still get their pensions, and probably just pick up a cushy job lobbying for some outfit.
It’s totally corrupt. Totally Machiavellian. I saw the corruption in the early 90’s and have not voted since then. I am not a voluntary individual member of a corrupt system.
I am willing to stand 100% behind a true, Constitutional Republic, but we have not had that for decades, maybe almost a century.
Spooner was right.
