    Christian Post ^ | 12/09/2014 | Napp Nazworth
    President Barack Obama got "really angry" twice in off-the-record conversations with reporters, and one of those was "profanity-laced" as he unapologetically expressed his frustration at the fact that the journalists were reporting on scandals within his administration, retired ABC News journalist Ann Compton said in an interview with C-span's Brian Lamb. Within the past year, Compton recalled, the two times she saw Obama visibly angry at reporters was over coverage of scandals and how the press covered his foreign policy in the Middle East. "I have seen in the last year Barack Obama really angry twice. Both were off-the-record times....

    You don’t touch anyone in Liberia. Not kids, not adults, not other Westerners, not the colleagues you arrived with. It is the rule of rules, because while everyone able is taking precautions, you just can’t be sure where the invisible, lethal Ebola virus might be. Once the virus is on your fingers, it would be frighteningly easy to rub an eye and infect yourself. Our first day of reporting took us to all of Monrovia’s treatment centers. All were full, or nearly so. Outside each one were very sick people who couldn’t get in. As I interviewed them, I stood...

    The White House blew off a demand for openness and transparency from 40 prominent media groups, offering instead a “bunch of spin” that has reporters calling for a public debate on the administration’s anti-press policies, according to a prominent journalism organization. “We need to have a discussion,” said David Cuillier, president of the 10,000-strong Society for Professional Journalists. Cuillier, in Washington to address a national convention of archivists, told Secrets that White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Monday sent a response to a July 8 letter from SPJ and others demanding that the administration stop blocking reporter

    Wars, plane crashes, mass murder -- it's easy to report news that happens suddenly. Reporters do a good job covering that. But we do a bad job telling you about what's really changing in the world, because we miss the stories that happen slowly. These are usually the more important stories. Recently, President Barack Obama was mocked for saying: "The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been.

    A plan by the Federal Communications Commission to study how news organizations select stories has prompted about 10,000 people to sign a petition saying “no government monitors in newsrooms.” That’s according to the American Center for Law and Justice, which announced the petition Wednesday and said it reached that number within the first two hours. The agency announced a Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs last year, explaining that it wanted to understand the process of which stories are selected, station priorities, content production, populations served, perceived station bias, and perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the “critical...

In the nine months following Jared Lee Loughner’s murderous rampage, the FBI opened up at least 38 cases based on threats against specific members of Congress, as well as a handful of generic threats against unnamed members. This was a notable increase from the previous year, when the bureau opened 26 cases over a 12-month span, according to FBI documents.

    The only differences between many American political reporters and prostitutes is that prostitutes understand what type of business they are in and prostitutes provide something of value to the people who pay them. One of reasons Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney is because most political reporters at the Main Stream Media (MSM) are essentially prostitutes. They are partisan Obamista Democrats whose motto is "ours is not to question why. Ours is but to lie and lie." They apparently believe their duty is to make their fellow Democrats look good and the Republicans look bad. If wealthy Republicans want to improve...

    For some Washington reporters and media execs, cheering their team from the sidelines just isn’t good enough: Tugging on a red, white and blue Team Obama jersey is the answer. That’s the case for a whopping 19 journalists and media executives, including five from the Washington Post and three each from ABC and CNN, who’ve gone into the administration or center-left groups supporting the president. Those inside the administration hit 14 this month when the Post’s Stephen Barr joined the Labor Department. That’s a record, say some revolving door watchers, and could even be much higher:

    We have always known how anti-Israel and biased CNN (Crescent News Network) is. Now there is no pretense. They have laid bare their antisemitism for all the world to see. Unabashed prejudice. One can only imagine the propaganda packaged as "news" that we will be subjected to from their 'Palestinian' stringers. CNN Fires Entire Jewish Staff Of Israel Bureau - And Retains Only Arab Reporters (Before It's News) CNN's Israel bureau is downsizing, reportedly to cope with a reduced budget due to falling advertising revenues. That doesn't explain why they fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of...

    Mitt Romney's decision to avoid confrontations with the press since his victory in Florida last month -- and since his "very poor" comment on CNN -- has become a source of frustration for national reporters already wary of the campaign's strict scheduling and tight message control. But it is angering local press as well. Especially in Colorado, where one reporter from Denver's local Fox affiliate is suggesting that Romney's decision to spurn reporters could cost him should he return to the state in the general election. "[Y]our brand is now significantly tarnished in a critical swing state, one you seemed...

    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain got testy with a group of reporters chasing him throughout a hotel in the suburbs of Washington on Wednesday, refusing to discuss the story about harassment allegations lodged at him back in the 1990s. “Let me say one thing,” Cain told the scrum of reporters. “I’m here with these doctors and that’s what I’m going to talk about. So don’t even bother asking me all of these other questions that you all are curious about. Don’t even bother.” When reporters began asking him about the allegations — that Cain has repeatedly denied this week —...

    As the national media continues to promote the idea that these absurd "Occupy" protests demonstrate some groundswell of popular opinion, reports continue to emerge from localized media showing how ugly these encampments are becoming. A report out of Cleveland that  police are investigating a rape claim made by a 19-year-old woman last weekend has received little attention. Do you suppose if a rape claim was made against a tea partier that it would receive more attention?It's gotten so bad in Baltimore that organizers are discouraging alleged victims from going to the police (maybe they should go to Sheriff Biden).Meanwhile,...

    At Wednesday’s White House daily briefing, Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney to respond to a report that a White House official had “screamed and cussed at” CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson, over the unfolding Fast and Furious story. Carney said he didn’t know about that specific conversation, but elaborated in his response that, in general, “hard-bitten journalists” ought to be able to handle “tough conversations” and “an extra decibel or two in a phone conversation.”

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – When it comes to the national news media's perceived affection for President Obama, radio giant Rush Limbaugh has a unique way of describing the love. Rush Limbaugh On today's broadcast, as he analyzed NBC News coverage of Obama's bus tour in Midwestern states, Limbaugh said, "I don't know of a classy way of saying this." "Next time Obama has a colonoscopy, I wonder who they'll find in there. Which NBC personality will show up first?" His comments came after listening to discussion between NBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd, the network's chief White House correspondent...
