WASHINGTON ó The nationís largest news organizations lodged a complaint Thursday against the White House for imposing unprecedented limitations on photojournalists covering President Barack Obama, which they say have harmed the publicís ability to monitor its own government.
The organizations accuse the White House of banning photojournalists from covering Obama at some events, and then later releasing its own photos and videos of the same events.

As my old pappy used to say, “that be hunkering down.”
Transparent administration ...
those being paid to report the lies want more money ... is all am seeing.
The Journalists cannot be too unhappy. They are still kissing his butt. Not one of them has started a real investigation into his past.
“The letter was signed by 38 news organizations, including all the major broadcast and cable networks, wire services, online services and newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and the McClatchy Co., which owns 30 daily newspapers across the nation.”
Meh. I’d like to see a complete listing. The AP and Al Reuters and Al Jazeera will be conspicuously absent, I’m betting...
Obama’s cheering squad is upset? Do they really expect me to believe that they would report anything that would make Obama look bad? Honestly, AP, NBC, CBS, etc...what difference does it make if it is your pic, their pic, your story, their story...it is all the same B.S.
Al Jazeera has higher journalistic standards than does the NY Times.
I don’t see a problem here. Hell, they don’t report anything anyway.
It’s an always on ass kissing fest.
Thats all they can find to complain about?
Just STFU. You waited until after his second election to bring this crap up. Journalist are trying to rehabilitate their credentials now that they got him re-elected.
Maybe they can get Issa to hold a hearing; that’ll get to the bottom of things and quick.
“But Barry, I thought we were friends!”
SA rallies are members only!
Cry Me A River . . . Newspukes.
Caliph Baraq is just trying to help out his MSM supporters.
He understands the media is on a long slow fade and faces financial problems.
They can eliminate a bunch of expensive private sector photogs and camera people and technicians, and use the taxpayer funded official media offered.
Typical dictator stuff.
By 2014’s end, they will be passing secret laws.
Sure they have. And these complicit traitors are going to stop carrying the water for the Marxist. Sure, okay.

When will sane thinking Americans say to Issa, Enough Already with these sham hearings where NOBODY loses their job, goes to jail or gets anything more than a very stern letter from the committee. No impeachments, NO NADA!
NBCs Chuck Todd Questions W.H. Transparency, Compares To Example Of Putin In Russia
“I’ve been asked my first hard question in 5 years! Who do they think they are?? Remove reporters access to me. I don’t want to hear it again!” ~Obama
There are already secret Presidential Directives that have an impact very similar to law.
If I am not mistaken, there are court cases over them (at least 1) right now.
That's exactly right. The way they media have dealt with anything they didn't like in the past was to endlessly report on it as well as go digging for everything and anything they could find. Along comes their hero of heroes, Barack Hussein Obama, and they tepidly lodge a complaint and wait by the phone for their next instructions.
The socialists are turning on their useful idiots. When will the media realize that ass-kissing does not help those who aid the enemy?
Too bad the 'Journalists Establishment' sold out to liberal thugs years ago... Gonna be hard to reestablish their reputation as a legitimate force in a democracy considering they're primarily known as knee-pad kissers of liberal butt.
Journalists threw away so much for... nothing - soooooo little - so stupid. They made this bed...
Not surprised either...
I mean, King George didn’t put up with media, why should King Øbama.
The White Hut reply:
“Would y’all have let a ni**er into a Klan Meeting?. I thought not! How is this any different? Get the hell out, cracker.”
His people know he doesn’t know s%$# fron Shinola and they’re tired of covering form him!! :)
So they will hide him out.
they don't want these kind photos going out
Why is anybody surprised? This is just another step on the way to a turd world dick-tatorship.
The problem you see here is that the media (absolutely and truly) believes thet they have influenced the elctorate in the election. As a group, they hold, as a truism, THEY caused the election of one Barak Hussein Obama.
If that isn’t true...where do they stand? They MUST continue to prop-up the Pretender-in-chief or flame out in a glorious, smelly, fart!
When the media realized that could “depose” a president (Nixon), they figured they could put into office ANY president of their choosing.
The MSM is “drunk” on the power of their own making. Drunking excess has it accountability.
Excuse the typos.
I’m trying diligently to finish up at work and provide my help-meet with dinner.
That photo and the bike riding one are my FAVS....Oh, and the ball throwing....GIRLIE BOY!!!!
Thanks Jonah Vark, kudos on the nick’.
