Beat the Press
New York Post, by Maureen Callahan

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 3/3/2013 7:46:02 AM

As coverage of last week’s flare-up between Bob Woodward and the White House devolved into the granular parsing of words and implications and extrapolations and possible intent, the larger point was roundly missed: the increasing pressure that White House correspondents feel when dealing with the Obama administration — to follow their narrative, to be properly deferential (!), to react to push-back by politely sitting down and shutting up.

forgive my spleen, but why shouldn´t the WH react this way? Obama´s henchmen played it this way from 2007 on and yet the press pushed whatever fictitious nonsense they were fed from "hope and change" in 2007 to "Obama called benghazi terrorism the next day" in 2012. NOW SUDDENLY we are supposed to feel all bad about the poor press being bullied. Well, I´m glad this is all coming out and I hope it opens the floodgates of this worst administration in all american history. But these press corpsmen (should that be corpse-men?) are in the only job specifically protected by the constitution and that means they have an obligation to tell the truth and they are the no good bums who foisted Obama on us for EIGHT YEARS OF DESTRUCTION. And now they are crying about how badly they are being treated. OK press corps. Go at it with a vengeance! but I will always remember Nixon. After he was rehabilitated, he gave a speech to the Washington press corps. They gave him a standing ovation. He shook all the hands. He was on his way out and said to Bill Safire, "they´re still a bunch of [excrements]"

Well he is black, well half black and that half requires everyone to be deferential to him if not you are just a racist. No criticism, no difficult questions, no questioning of motives, can´t question work ethic or vacations, all just because of the color of Obama´s skin! What have we become to let this happen?? He and the Democrats are willfully destroying this country with their policies and the msm can´t see that? Does the msm have no children or grandchildren or elderly parents all of whom will be severely impacted including shorten lives because of what is going on. This country is at high risk of falling into to total chaos and the "Press" cow tails to Obama so they won´t be criticized like Woodword? God help us all!

I agree with #3 also; these prancing, breathless syncophants have it coming. It will be fun to hear the exposés as they dribble out. Shouldn´t take too long. There is hardly an original thought among them...but maybe some of the reporting with stiffen a bit.

One can only come to the conclusion that this truly reveals the attitude of administration´s henchmen towards the Press which is simply stated: "Bend over, we own you"

Just think about Obama´s general modus: He performs poorly and actively engages in processes that intentionally damage the US. Anyone who dares speak out about any of it is strong armed, threatened in a way only DC commies could. Is this what affirmative action is supposed to produce? Is this Frankenstein a byproduct?

It´s my belief Obama has a propaganda machine, the likes of which have never been seen, even on blogs. It´s easy to get that feeling seeing what lefties post on other blogs: they attack, calling people who expose Obama extremely vile names, disparage/discredit their sources, try to get people to not read articles by saying, "skipped". I just laugh and crank up the volume even more. Like one previous cl poster once said, "If you´re catching flak, you are most likely over the target.

Posting my replies right here on Lucianne dot com’s threads, as I have for years, is a privilege I do not take lightly. Were it not for Lucianne, I’m pretty sure by now I’d be nursing a world-class ulcer. I think I read somewhere that freely expressing one’s opinion – venting and ranting – is a boon to one’s mental health. I know it is to mine.

Especially during this ghastly administration, the so-called mainstream media, rather than reporting the news, has distorted or invented or omitted it. And now, all of a sudden things are no longer so hunky-dory for the media? Aw! Serves ‘em right!

Perhaps the rump swabs in the press aren´t keeping their lips on zippy´s backside for ideological reasons only. Maybe it´s that old thing about feeding the crocodile in the hope that he will eat you last. Look at the history of communism and of dictators - who is the first to be thrown up against the wall and shot when the bad guys finally achieve power? The "free" press, of course.

Look, any journalist who managed to elicit an abusive phone call or email form an administration spokesman would have an immediate winner of a story. Make it clear that the minute the communication goes nasty, it´s on the record and in the story, period. With that caveat an open policy, not only is abusive treatment of the press unwise on the part of public figures, it´s an invitation for public censure. The crybabies in the press are just that. Man up and stand up to these guys or find a new profession, but spare us the whining.

When I read stories like this, I´m reminded of Hugo Chavez, who several years ago made it a crime to "insult the president" (himself). What that meant was that any reporter who criticized Chavez or his policies went to prison.

sending fighter jets and more destructive things to muslim enemy regimes should be enough even for communist democrats to moan about, might even arouse a greed addicted republican or two, but no. All of crazed DC
is too busy stealing fake Fed fiat paper money, while they can, to be protective or aware of anything sensible to our nation.
The most frightening of them all, even more than mobamao, is the lovely hall monitor who should be watching for bad things happening, you know, Diane Sawyer. But wait,
she´s being paid millions, penthouse, limo, to keep her mouth shut and see no evil. She´s doing a great racket protecting job bringing America to ruin on the fast track.
...along with all of the mainstream TV/ press and most of the pointless arguing scenarios of Fox News, too.

It is beyond the pale to expect honest reporting from a press corpse that is 90% left wing democrat.
BUTY it may be that if their ox is gored enough, they might insist of being able to use their own photographers instead of being fed posed shots by the DNC flacks, and they might [point out some of the more obvious lies coming out from 0blamer Biden and Carney.
Probably too much to hope for from the Ministry of Truth.

Reward your friends, punish your enemies. The Obama/Jarrett way. If they bring a knife, you bring a gun.

If they say to punish a reporter it will be done by one of his confederates with no questions asked. Being the wimps they are they will generally heel.

Make no mistake, beneath his joker´s grin, Obama is a very dangerous man.

Either Obama will invite them to wine and dine and sing softly until their toes curl and all is forgiven...
or, his power is cemented and he need only remind them with a kick in the teeth now and then.
This is an abuser´s m.o.

The real change comes when the abused figures out they can leave. There is a price to pay, though...a high price. I guess we´ll see who is willing to pay it to regain their dignity and peace of mind. God help them.

The alternative is a life of continued degradation which usually ends in disgrace or death.

I wish these "journalists" or reporters, especially the women, would gather the courage to start showing those emails of the White House staff calling them the most vile names...simply because they ask a tough question.

This entire administration is evil, and evil grows like a fungus. It loves the darkness and lives there in order to survive. And spread.

It is spreading across America and spreading fast.

As we watch today´s Chris Wallace interview with the Romneys on FOX, we are again filled with frustration and angst that they are not in the WH right now, for if they were 0bama´s destructive statist policies would not be slicing & diceing the country every-which-way! ...And the blatantly dem-biased press, (-and 0bama´s very own microphone!), is is IS in no small part responsible for the leftist sensless mess the country is in today.

Today´s American press is worthless, even destructive, as facts & truth do not matter to the majority of those dem puppets who are simply masquerading as authentic, ´´journalists.´´ This is not what was envisioned by the Founders in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution regarding freedoms need for a free press.

All this media owned by obama angst fails to focus on one fact the printed and video media is dying. The media can´t stop that march over their own cliff that constant lies kills the messengers.

I remind myself that the Schadenfreude I feel in the press being shanked by the WH must not overshadow the press´s importance. Just because they forgot their calling for six years does not negate the fact they are the fastest and the proper means to bring down the public´s admiration of the poser.

The press can save the country, pick up their copies of "Journalism, 1954", and go to work.

The Washington Press Corpse is well deserving of any beating they get. They have sacrificed any credibility they HAD on the Alter of Obama´s Behind. I and many others have no sympathy for them, they are deserving of all the abuse Obama´s minions can heap upon them. They are truly a manifestation of individuals suffering under the abuse of the Beaten Wife Syndrome.
They are at once lazy and incompetent. They have been fed Democ´Rat Mother´s Milk by the Regime for so long they are programmed to just keep sucking and forget what they are paid to do. The whole country suffers and they care not.

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

Rep.

Gowdy said that he counted 17 separate factual assertions by Lerner which in his opinion was enough to force her to be cross-examined. “That’s a lot of talking for someone who wants to remain silent. That’s a lot of talking!” Gowdy thundered. “If you honestly that you can make 17 separate factual assertions and still invoke your right to remain silent, then please tell me what waiver is?”

Nate Moore was walking to homeroom, book in hand, when a classmate he knew to be quiet and unassuming tackled a freshman boy a few feet in front of him. Moore thought it was the start of a fistfight and went to break it up. But 16-year-old Alex Hribal wasn´t throwing punches - he was stabbing his victim in the belly, Moore said.

One million buried in mass graves

New York - Most New Yorkers don´t even know it exists. But a million forgotten souls are buried in mass graves dug by convicts on a tiny, forbidden island east of the Bronx. Since 1869, still-born babies, the homeless, the poor and the unclaimed have been stacked one upon the other, three coffins deep, on Hart Island. Corpses are interred in great, anonymous trenches. There are no tombstones. Small white posts in the ground mark each 150 adult bodies. A thousand children and infants are buried together per grave. It is one of the largest cemeteries in the United States. And the least

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
