GOOD BOY: OBAMA LETS OBEDIENT MEDIA KNOW THEIR PLACE AFTER ELECTION BuzzFeed Politics was forced on Friday to ask the question that all tween girls find themselves pondering about their first crush: why wont he talk to me? Andrew Kaczynski seemed confused and distraught that President Obama issued a statement without taking any questions in his first press conference since Tuesdays election. It was the first time an incumbent president has refused to answer questions from reporters after winning reelection in over two decades. Maybe BuzzFeed Politics wouldve been less surprised by this turn of events if they were actually doing the work of real journalists instead of acting like unpaid members of the Obama reelection campaign for the past year; President Obamas propensity for avoiding questions from the White House Press Corps has been well documented. -- Now that Obamas second term has been secured, it appears that the Old Media believed Obama would reward their obedience and diligence in protecting him by actually treating them like the noble Fourth Estate they believe they are. In his first appearance before them, Obama told them to pound sand. He never needs to worry about his approval ratings or to campaign for office ever again. He doesnt need them anymore. Andrew, believe me when I tell you that were not sorry to say, We told you so. Enjoy the next four years.
