The recent Seeing Red AZ post titled Obama’s state-run media rivals Pravda, covered the fact that thirty-eight of the nation’s largest news organizations joined together in lodging a complaint against the White House for instituting restrictive new limitations on photojournalists covering the president. Access to important executive branch functions was completely shut off, enabling the White House to release its own ‘official’ video and photos — and consequently, control the dissemination of news. This Nov. 21, 2013 letter signed by all major media outlets protested the newly instituted muzzling of the press. It was hand-delivered to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
Realizing their own credibility is in shambles, the Obama apologists in the press corps have finally had their fill. USA Today has announced* it will no longer accept the carefully controlled White House photo handouts. Now even the New York Times calls these “visual press releases.” Could this new-found ire at being shut out signal an end to the obedient adulation the sycophantic liberal national media has lavished on Barack Obama? With his polling numbers in the toilet, are they abandoning him in favor of their newest love?
Watch as Carney blames everyone, including the Internet, for the administration’s own policies. The press will have none of it and erupts in protest:
Be sure to watch PJ Media’sTrifecta with startling examples of the photo comparisons.
There may yet be hope.
