” At some point, a compendium of condemnations against the Obama administration’s record of media transparency (actually, opacity) must be assembled. Notable quotations in this vein come from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, “It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering”; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, “I think Obama hates the press”; and CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, who said, “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.”
USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page has added a sharper edge to this set of knives. Speaking Saturday at a White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) seminar, Page called the current White House not only “more restrictive” but also “more dangerous” to the press than any other in history, a clear reference to the Obama administration’s leak investigations and its naming of Fox News’s James Rosen as a possible “co-conspirator” in a violation of the Espionage Act.”
Read the entire piece as some in the media are finally coming to rue the “Frankenstein’s monster” of irrelevancy that their own slavish devotion to Obama’s rise and continued
success re-election has given birth to .
The sycophants are finally getting a feel of the same bite on the ass that we , the public , have been enduring these past six years . The irony of the media , or parts of it anyway , finally coming to terms with their own self-destruction would be laughable if not for the terrible price this whole country has paid to see it come about .
