McClatchy, USA Today Refuse
to Publish White House Photos

Breitbart Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/30/2013 10:35:07 PM

It only took five years for the American media to get tired of President Obama´s spoon-fed propaganda -- well, at least one aspect of it. Earlier this month, 38 news organizations, including the Associated Press, ABC News, The Washington Post, and Reuters demanded more photojournalist access to the president. The White House responded with what one reporter described as a middle finger. Now some news organizations are responding by formalizing policies not to publish White House-distributed photographs. Last week the USA Today announced that it will not use “handout photos originating from the White House Press Office, except in very

There is only one possible reason why Obama´s Court Eunuchs in the Enemedia would be "turning" on him (if they are, which I seriously doubt) - to reposition themselves slightly away from King Barack in order to better begin a egregiously deceitful propaganda campaign for The Smartest Woman In The World. No other possible reason, as they sacrificed their dignity and scruples long ago.

Six of one, or a half dozen of the other. In other words, their photo-shopped pictures or the MSM photo-shopped pictures. Why are they complaining, they have been on their knees for this Administration for five years and now they want to show a smidgen of pretended independence.

Sounds to me like a bunch of sissies scorned. You have to give the WH credit, they recognize adulation when they see it. This snit will be over soon enough when another bone is thrown their way.

Didn´t Hitler supply all the photos of himself so he always looked good?

I remember as a stamp collector that the reason old Adolph was on every German postage stamp in the 1930´s was so he could get paid for the use of his own image. A very tiny royalty that gave him millions of marks.

Be charitable, folks. The MSM is more to be pitied than punished. Behold this sentence: "Both McClatchy and USA Today claim that these were their policies anyway, which makes one wonder what the point is." This is shameful-to-watch groveling, friends. A mere two of the 38 news organizations take positive action and the remaining 36 abandon them...OUT OF FEAR.

McClatchy and USAT look up at their master from their kneeling position and beg forgiveness.

Back in 2007, the leftist media discovered their mulatto messiah and they joined a cult. All criticism of their idol was categorized as "Racist" which made it easy for them to deflect in our brain-washed society. The narrative stuck. Now no one can criticize "The Magic Negro," -- not even the MSM.

They happily chose to ride the tiger. Now they can´t get off.

They, and we, live in fear of what we have wrought.

They are still whores, they are simply making an issue of the payment. These people had the power in their hands to stop Obama in his tracks, before he destroyed a big part of the country. Before the 2008 election, they could have exposed him as an inexperienced, undocumented, non-American, haughty boy child that was nothing more than a creation of the leftist/liberal movement that has had its sights on our way of life for decades. They chose to go along with the charade and now they deserve whatever befalls them.

How has former president George W. Bush been spending his time out of office? By painting, of course. We´ve long known of Bush´s exploration of his artistic side. But now we get to see the results. Bush is unveiling more than two dozen portraits of world leaders for an exhibit called "The Art of Leadership: A President´s Personal Diplomacy" at Southern Methodist University. Of his painting, Bush told his daughter Jenna Bush Hager: "There’s a Rembrandt trapped in this body." While neither SMU nor the Bush library will release close-ups of all of the portraits (booooo!), they did send us

“We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” – President Obama, remarks in the Rose Garden, April 1, 2014 - A reader asked us about this comment during the president’s victory lap on the Affordable Care Act. Were there really “billions” of dollars worth of commercials opposing the law? Our initial reaction was that this was just a bit of presidential hyperbole. On the other hand, the president did make this assertion in a major speech. So let’s see what the data say. The Facts -The best source for spending on political ads is Kantar Media

192,000 Jobs Added in
March but Wages Fall
Breitbart Big Government, by Peter Morici    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/4/2014 12:45:14 PM     Post Reply
The economy created 192,000 jobs in March, down from 197,000 in February and still well below the pace needed to lower underemployment to respectable levels. Those mediocre results are consistent with a broadly underperforming economy. Manufacturing employment lost 1,000 jobs and government stalled. Other than construction, which gained 19,000 employees, most new positions were in lower paying activities like leisure and hospitality, support activities in health care, retail, and temporary business services. Hourly earnings fell, indicating good jobs continue to be scarce. In 2013, GDP growth was only 1.9 percent, thanks to the $200 billion January tax increase and federal

The city announced Thursday that Michael Hancock and other officials plan to meet with representatives of Amsterdam´s municipal government during a trip mainly focused on economic development. The Netherlands recently has taken a harder line toward marijuana, including banning tourists from visiting coffee shops where pot is sold. Amsterdam still allows tourists in the shops but has been closing ones near schools. The mayor and his delegation also will tour the Netherlands´ main international airport and

Calling her a "mama grizzly" who will protect Southwest Florida, Republican political power Sarah Palin backed congressional candidate Lizbeth Benacquisto on Thursday, breezing through Southwest Florida for a private fundraiser. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, 2008 vice presidential nominee and Republican firebrand, served up barbecue and a side of support for Benacquisto, one of four GOP candidates running in the April 22 special election for a vacated U.S. House of Representatives seat. The pair were joined by about 100 people in an East Naples backyard, listening as Benacquisto’s most high-profile endorser rallied her troops.

Is it Clarence Thomas’s court?

Justice Clarence Thomas’s influence was on full display in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to strike down a key campaign finance restriction. And it’s just one in a string of cases in which Thomas could be dragging the court toward his way of thinking. Chief Justice John Roberts penned Wednesday’s plurality decision, which eliminates the limit on the total dollar amount an individual may give to political candidates and committees. But Thomas, seen by many as the court’s most conservative justice, wrote a concurring opinion that both represented the decisive vote in the 5-4 decision, and beckoned the justices to

The communications giant Comcast announced in February that it would buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, creating the largest cable provider in America, with more than 33 million customers. That is about one third of the U.S. cable and satellite television market. FCC approval is required for the merger to go into effect. Critics of the deal say it would lessen competition and lead to even shoddier customer service. They are probably right, as all of us will soon find out, because there is little chance the merger will be stopped. Comcast, Time Warner, and their political fixers have

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
