The media made Barack Obama what he is today. The MSM conjured up this image of a man who was post racial and the best thing since sliced bread while ignoring the warning signs of his radical past. They failed to do any research on his past and were negligent in those duties because they were actively working to get him elected. Any Republican (or white man for that matter) would have been scrutinized to the nth degree and anyone with as little experience and as radical a background would have been skewered by the press. Witness how the MSM attacked Palin’s so called lack of experience even though she had more executive experience than any of the other three candidates and had as much experience as Obama.
The media wanted Obama and they were going to get him as their man.
But now Obama has bitten the very hand of the entity that made him. He has not had a press conference in a long time and he shunned the White House Press Corps (Corpse to Obama) by breaking protocol last Saturday and leaving without them.
The leaders of the world arrived in DC for a summit on nuclear weapons and the press was shunned by their creation. Obama made opening remarks and then said they would take a break while the press left. His schedule for much of the other activities was closed to the press:
Obama’s official schedule for Tuesday would have pleased China’s Central Committee. Excerpts: “The President will attend the Heads of Delegation working lunch. This lunch is closed press . . . The President will meet with Prime Minster Erdogan of Turkey. This meeting is closed press. . . . The President will attend Plenary Session II of the Nuclear Security Summit. This session is closed press.”
Reporters, even those on the White House beat for two decades, said it was the most restrictive set of meetings they had ever seen in Washington. They complained to both the administration and White House Correspondents’ Association, which will discuss the matter Thursday with White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. Washington Post
The media has created a Frankenstein monster who has now turned away from them. Obama and the federal government control many private businesses, they have taken over the people through health care and now he is controlling the media.
The vaunted American freedom was not on display to many reporters from around the world. They must be wondering how one radical was able to extinguish the beacon of freedom so quickly.
Never surrender, never submit.
