    Barack Obama was elected commander in chief promising to run the most transparent presidential administration in American history.

    This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him "Newsmaker of the Year."

    The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon.

    The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.

    From the president's official schedule:

    "Later in the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will attend a reception with the National Newspaper Publisher Association in the State Dining Room, where they will be presented the Newsmaker of the Year award. This event is closed press."

    Maybe they'll let the newspaper people pass the award through the fence.

    Just more of the same.

    I can't want to hear what the Obamatrons say about this.

    "It's his press award, he can invite who he wants."

    "No reason for the press to be there. The White House photographer will
    hand out photos after wards."

    "Is this all you have to complain about?"

    "Obama is a God. No one is worthy of being in the same room with him. We should all be thankful that we are allowed to even breathe his name."

    What he didn't tell us was that his transparency is muddy-colored. Guess they left if off the teleprompter.

    A group from whom we can expect very tough coverage of President Obama.
