The Amateur Hour Moments Just Keep Coming: Obama And The Press
Although it’s always amusing to see the mainstream media getting disrespected, this is so hamhanded, foolish, and tone deaf that it makes Obama look even worse than the press,
“This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him “Newsmaker of the Year.”
The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon.
The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.
From the president’s official schedule:
“Later in the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will attend a reception with the National Newspaper Publisher Association in the State Dining Room, where they will be presented the Newsmaker of the Year award. This event is closed press.”
Maybe they’ll let the newspaper people pass the award through the fence.” — Andrew Malcolm
The mainstream media tossed their principles aside to become cheerleaders for Barack Obama during the campaign. They looked past his lack of experience, buried his flaws, ignored his gaffes, and made it their mission to get him elected to the White House and their thanks was to be shut out of their own media awards. Why? It’s hard to say. Maybe Teleprompter Jesus isn’t going to be able to use his teleprompter for some reason and doesn’t want anyone covering the gaffes that are almost sure to follow.
