Skip to comments.Chuck Todd: The White House Bubble (MSM waking up?)
Posted on 02/13/2009 3:11:58 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Obviously, I'm one of the newbies here in the White House press corps, so maybe I'm unfamiliar with the ways of how this place works. I have to say, nothing is more frustrating than covering an actual event here at the White House if you at all believe in anything remotely having to do with the First Amendment.
For instance, today, the president gave a speech in the East Room to the business council, an audience of dozens of CEOs and major business leaders in America. As per usual, we're allowed to watch the event behind a ropeline. Ok, standard procedure for any event for any candidate, let alone a president. But unlike public events, here at the White House, when the event ends, we get no access to the audience unless the audience happens to amble up to the ropeline and chat with the press.
Today, it was so bad that we were kept behind closed doors so that these CEOs and other business leaders could leave without accidentally mingling with us poor press peons. Once the CEOs were clear and escorted downstairs, then we were let out of our East Room pen. And it's not like we could rush over to the east side of the White House and find anyone left to interview about their role on this business council. By the time, a member of the press leaves out the one exit they can come in and out of, those guys and gals would be history. I'm sure most of them had cars at the ready to quickly get them to their next meeting.

No, they aren’t waking up. They may get their nose out-of-join now and then, but they still worship the ground Bambi walks on. Remember, 90% or more of them are D’s.
When your candidate lip-syncs his way through 2 years of a campaign they’re certainly not going to start revealing the recording process.
Don’t overestimate the MSM. Chucky will be fine once he has another glass of kool-aide.
Sounds like the way the whisked the USS Cole families out.
The press members need to be treated like the elite they are—self-esteem trumps even their leftism.
Remind me to tell you sometime how broken up I am over this.
And by the raggedy nature of that goatee, I bet Chuck has plenty of fleas.
The MSM can’t expose BO. They expose BO, they expose themselves.
Exactly. They may quibble when their worship isn’t rewarded by getting the story, but they are still Hussein’s choir.
Oh, and update the resume.
One day they are going to wake up and find jackbooted thugs taking over their precious networks.
Hey Chuck, this is the change you believed in - sucka.
The media is not “asleep” with regard to Obama. The word “asleep” implies that they are innocents who have been hoodwinked by Obama and the other leftists that they support. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The media is an integral part of the Socialist team and are fully in bed with the ascension of Socialism and the destruction of the prevailing order in the US and the West.
They are one of the organs of our destruction and are a fundamental part of “the enemy within”.
Hey Chuck, under the Obama Socialism Administration you are but a peon like the rest of us. Obama will use you when he needs you and ignore you when he does. Have fun being a puppet.
He wrote this on a Friday before a 3 day weekend so:
1. It wouldn’t be read.
2. He can state he H-A-S written something critical of the Obama administration.
Too late now, genius.
