Has Obama pissed off his leftists protectors in the MSM?

Well, the fact that another bunch of them got a dose of heavy shit from the WH and are now suddenly turning on him like hyenas, sure gives one that impression, but one has to wonder if this is just contrived shit to make the MSM look like it is tough on Obama and the donkeys. What’s the problem?

The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights. White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country from the approved pool of journalists covering presidential visits to the Bay Area for using now-standard multimedia tools to gather the news.

The Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci – who, like many contemporary reporters, has a phone with video capabilities on her at all times -shot some protesters interrupting an Obama fundraiser at the St. Regis Hotel. She was part of a “print pool” – a limited number of journalists at an event who represent their bigger hoard colleagues – which White House press officials still refer to quaintly as “pen and pad” reporting.

But that’s a pretty Flintstones concept of journalism for an administration that presents itself as the Jetsons. Video is every bit a part of any journalist’s tool kit these days as a functioning pen that doesn’t leak through your pocket.

So they caught Obama with his pants down on some meaningless bullshit, and now they are playing all hardball with the WH for treating them like a pimp treats his hos? Oooh! How tough they are! Meh. I am not impressed. When I see them get all bent out of shape and take on the WH and the donkeys in congress for disastrous policies, based on massive lies and fabrications, like that Obamacare bullshit they spent so much time parroting DNC talking points and falsehoods for, or the scandalous stimuluspatronage bill cheerleading fest, for example, I may change my mind that this is all show to make it look like they don’t line up and drop on their knees to fellatio these assholes in the donkey party.

    Heh. I was just about to post this. It’s hilarious how sensitive Obama gets when he doesn’t get regularly blown by the media. Did you see the video of that interview in Texas where he snapped at the guy for interrupting him? It’s amazing how fast the office makes its inhabitant feel like a king.

    I’m pretty sure he felt like a king beforehand – I mean, he did run for president despite having zero qualifications for the job other being able to read a teleprompter.

    Obama’s always been pretty bad about it, though, and far worse at covering it up. Any questioning at all that’s not phrased as a compliment makes him get that tight look around the eyes and his lips go thin. It’s very, very close to a full-out pout.

    He must have been pissed when he didn’t get invited to the royal wedding. That sort of snub probably had him wandering around the White House like a thundercloud, glaring at anyone that got in his way and trying not to let his lower lip jut out too far.

    Freaky stuff Hal. Real freaky. When you are this full of yourself and tolerate no dissent, how the hell are you ever going to allow people around you to tell you what you are doing is wrong? The worst leaders throughout history – history and human folklore & mythology is riddled with stories of how these vain beasts have dragged those following them though hell on earth – have been like this. The media hid this guy from us and got him elected because the bullshit he believes in matched their world view. If there is any justice in the universe they will pay for inflicting this poor excuse for leader on not just this country, but the world.
