To Obama Fair Press is One Way, His Way
The example below is only one of nearly three years of Obama playing thug against any media that dares to do less than praise him and attack his enemies (ie, the real life people). Remember how Fox News was barred from the White House and blacklisted? They were far from the only one. The Boston Herald is one of the latest because they dared to publish a story on their former governor on the front page.
The White House Press Office has refused to give the Boston Herald full access to President Obama’s Boston fund-raiser today, in e-mails objecting to the newspaper’s front page placement of a Mitt Romney op-ed, saying pool reporters are chosen based on whether they cover the news “fairly.”
“I tend to consider the degree to which papers have demonstrated to covering the White House regularly and fairly in determining local pool reporters,” White House spokesman Matt Lehrich wrote in response to a Herald request for full access to the presidential visit.
