An Article by Liberty Speaks….
Move over Honey Boo Boo and Real Housewives there is a new show brewing in DC that may give you all a run for your money. It seems that the White house press corp is quite upset with President Obama these days….and are crying foul. A line comes to mind….”There’s no crying in baseball” Well, there should be no wining in the media.
Over the weekend, President Obama in a not so smooth move brushed off the press corp to play a round of golf with Tiger Woods down in Florida. I question the choice of partners due to the fact Woods has been a controversial figure of an adulterous nature and is also part of that pesky 1% crowd Obama seems to have disdain for, yet I digress. It was a media black out for the 18 holes that would have produced photo-ops galore for the fawning reporters. Well, guys and gals, you really should have expected this. For the past 4 1/2 years the majority of you all have either thrown softballs, Nerf balls, or have had no balls in the questioning of this POTUS, or the digging for the truth on some of our countries most controversial scandals such as Benghazi , (H/T to Lady Liberty on Benghazi Gate) and Fast and Furious, (even the Daily Kos questioned media neglect on this one). You have remained silent on the many contradictions regarding Obama’s current economic policies and the debt vs. Candidate Obama’s statements on raising the debt…“That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic,” said candidate Obama. Yet, some of you are now realizing you are being and have been played by this administration from the get go. In a somewhat scathing article by Politico, the strings on the press corp are finally being visualized by the left stream media and Obama’s ability to manipulate you all. From that article, and I will list as my favorite parts:
*President Barack Obama is a master at limiting, shaping and manipulating media coverage of himself and his White House….
*frustrated Obama press corps neared rebellion this past holiday weekend when reporters and photographers were not even allowed onto the Floridian National Golf Club, where Obama was golfing.
I had to chuckle at the almost cathartic nature of the article in the way the Left stream media, like an Alcoholic, is coming out and realizing it may have a problem as the first step to recognizing its addiction. Well, open up the flood gates of “we told ya so’s” because this is something we fellow thinkers have seen since his nomination back in ’08. From Bruce Johnson op-ed, with the American Thinker, “These are the same journalists who sat on their hands during Fast and Furious. They failed to notice any lack of transparency during the Holder hearings when copious amounts of inter-agency communiques were redacted and withheld. Do these journalists realize that the people still do not know the highest ranking Department of Justice official to have knowledge of Fast and Furious? Did “transparency” reveal who implemented or approved the program?” to Silvio Canto, Jr. also with American Thinker his article titled “This is what happens when you are in the tank for the President” and New York magazine which had comments from Ed Henry, WHCA president and Fox News correspondent….(by the way, Mr. Henry has always in my mind shown integrity and true journalistic qualities that should be held as a standard)
“Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend, “.. “There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”
I say to those in the Press corp whom have allowed for this to happen…. Your have only your selves to blame for giving this guy a pass in the first place. Cut the strings, and stop acting like the characters in a ridiculous reality show. The American public requires you to do your job. Stop waiting for the President to be forthcoming and go after the accountability!!!! -Liberty Speaks
