Skip to comments.Reporter Bob Franken Blasts Obama on MSNBC: ‘Most Hostile’ to Press 'in U.S. History'
Posted on 12/01/2013 9:26:39 AM PST by EveningStar
During a segment examining the complaints lodged by a group of photojournalists relating to how the White House manipulates public accounting of events by blocking independent photography, an MSNBC panel tore into President Barack Obama's handling of relations with the press.

And the worse he acts, the more they (the press) worship him!
It’s that “transparency” thing that makes the Obama regime so “hostile”. If MSNBC thinks it has it tough, imagine how FOX feels. The commie ‘RATS are always hammering FOX for putting out the truth about what is going on in that sewer up in D.C.
Milbank is such a putz.
Three against one in favor of the people? What’s happening to MSNBC’s leftist credibility here?
The MSM is feeling slighted because Obama doesn’t think they’re doing his propaganda well enough. Their feelings are hurt.
No Christmas or Easter invites for him.. or any of the press.
My post from an earlier thread:
Franken, youve got it backward. The MSM of today is the most butt-licking in U.S. history.
From before he was elected, you gave off all the signals that you would ignore what he wanted to be ignored and highlight what he wanted to be highlighted.
You remind me of the girlfriend that hangs on the mobster. Never make him look bad no matter what he does. Always make him look good no matter what he does. Always look up to him with a smile and adoring eyes. Always forgive him when he mistreats you. Always forgive his violence to you and others. Always do what he asks, no matter how repellant. Always allow yourself to be used as he pleases. And love it.
Admit it, Franken. I am right, you are wrong. What he does comes naturally. You guys have to work hard to ignore it. Once that is established, he can ignore you since you have surrendered control to him.
Then only way out, the only way to take back your self-respect, if you want, is to gang up on him and let him have it with everything you can dig up.
But you are chicken poop and wont do it. Franken, you will stick with going after absentee landlord type stories, the way you got your investigative reporter start in Cleveland. You were a much better reporter back then. Now you make me laugh to go crying on TV, the spurned lover. You should be embarrassed.
DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!
OMG - three honest-to-God real journalists... who are totally starting to get it. The black woman journalist even suggested that for some of the off-the-record private (secret) meetings Obama has with journalists, that conservatives should be included. She also stood with photo-journalists who are sick of history being manipulated...
Thanks EveningStar for posting this... amazing that it was on MSNBC...
beaten wife syndrome. They will apologize for getting angry at him, then return to licking his shoes and folding his underwear.
I get the feeling that is changing.
Reporters smell blood..scarlet billows start to spread.
The White House photographer Pete Souza knows ALL about Barry’s relationship with Reggie Love. There’s a reason why Pete Souza is the only photographer allowed to take photos at Obama’s private events and his name is Reggie Love.
Note to panel: IRS audit on the way.
Might text be available?
Voops, (with all due embarrassment) there is text at the link.
The MSM press are frustrated that they “put out” in hopes of a “long term close relationship” with Obama and now they are being treated like a one night stand.
Gearing up for Hillary’s abuse.
... including an in-depth examination of that so-called "Birth Certificate."
There is a partial transcript here, but it's far from complete.
Beaten wife syndrome.
As you say...
No one gives a damn about the press, Bob.
Don’t journalists like Bob Franken understand that it’s not enough for them to simply criticize Obama into the thin air? That they have a responsibility to expose Obama’s secrets to the public?
If Upton Sinclair had merely stood in front of Chicago’s meat-packing plants at the beginning of the 20th century criticizing their owners, we’d still be eating sausages filled with sawdust and mouse droppings. Instead, he went undercover into the plants and exposed their failings, which brought about reforms.
If all the media wants to do is present people criticizing Obama, they don’t have to pay journalists-in-name-only like Bob Franken to do so, they’d be better off interviewing much more colorful and interesting people in bars.
They just miss smelling the throne. They will still do The Won’s bidding without question.
Yep. Every now and then they complain just a little. Then it’s right back to the worshipping. I know some voters who are like that, too.
Of course their feelings are hurt. Their knees are bleeding and their lips are blistered and 0bama is complaining that they don’t love him enough.
LOL - good one Tiger...
Ever wonder if folks in the MSM know how those of us in the Hinterlands feel about them ... are they oblivious to the public?
I think so. That and they think everyone in fly over country are uneducated hicks that can barely write their own names. To them our contempt confirms their superiority. It's the same mindset that fanatics have.
