    White House shuts out Herald scribe - BostonHerald.com

    The administration straight out admitted to not allowing the Herlad reporter in due to Obama's visit not being on the front page and instead running a front page story on Romney.

    To me this behavior by the white house, especially considering that last sentence, is both UN-Presidential and UN-American. Its also very childish behavior, not very mature at all.

    Actually all presidents have likely done it.

    Any presidents doing this are being spoiled little children. Im sure others have too and it just shows them having no spine and it annoys me.

    I was just happy to beat DEL to a local story for once ;)

    Was that after or before He told Noah to build the Ark and flooded the earth? Was it before he started the Civil War or WWII??? Was it before or after he sunk the Titanic? Was it before or after he brought about the Black Death? Why oh why, can't you be more specific uscitizen??? Is there anything in your mind Bush is not responsible for? .... Just saying. ;)

    The criteria for "fair" being, of course, "how much they kiss Obama's ass".

    The White House is full of petulant children. :cool:

    Move over Fox News!

    Another target of free speech by this thug administration.

    1.” President Obama is working systematically to marginalize the most powerful forces behind the Republican Party, setting loose top White House officials to undermine conservatives in the media, business and lobbying worlds…. Obama aides are using their powerful White House platform, combined with techniques honed in the 2008 campaign, to cast some of the most powerful adversaries as out of the mainstream and their criticism as unworthy of serious discussion. Everyone from White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel to White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has piled on Fox News by contending it’s not a legitimate news operation. Obama strategy: Marginalize most powerful critics - Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen - POLITICO.com


    a. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Alinsky, “Rules for Radicals,” p. 130.


    b. So a new White House strategy has emerged: rather than just giving reporters ammunition to "fact-check" Obama's many critics, the White House decided it would become a player, issuing biting attacks on those pundits, politicians and outlets…"It's opinion journalism masquerading as news," [Anita] Dunn says.” Calling 'Em Out: The White House Takes on the Press - TIME
