The Treason of the MSM

– Elphaba

As a follow up to my earlier post about the false information in Obama’s resume, I present you with this follow up article.  Here’s an excerpt:

The White House directive was issued as part of a deal struck between the Office of the President and reporters of the mainstream media.

In exchange for being given unprecedented access to Barack Obama, reporters would promise not to report ‘certain matters’ they may discover while covering the President.

From Steve Clemons at The Washington Note:

What I have learned after discussions over the last several days with several journalists who either have regular access to the White House or are part of the White House press corps is that there is a growing sense that access is traded for positive stories — or perhaps worse, an agreement that things learned will not be reported in the near term.

What, exactly, is meant by ‘things learned?’  What information could a journalist uncover while having close access to the President that would be deemed so damaging, embarrassing, or even worse, that the White House is exhibiting a near-paranoia in making sure such information is not reported?

And more importantly, why would any true journalist who is worth his/her salt agree to such a scheme?

Clemons believes that part of the reason is that some reporters who cover the White House want to write books about Obama.

A ‘sell-out’ to the dreaded Capitalism on the part of liberals?  Say it ain’t so.

The agreement between the White House and reporters is mutually beneficial.  The White House gets what it wants.  Any information that it considers to be negative or damaging to Obama will not be reported.  The reporters also get what they want–unprecedented access to the President of the United States, which will help their careers and eventually earn them millions in book royalties.

In the meantime, what are the citizens not being told about Barack Obama?

Disgusting, isn’t it?

  1. Disgusting, yes. But at this point, can we really say it is surprising? I’m waiting to see what other skeletons we drag out of this jackals closet. We’re only a year in…

    Well, they’ve been pretty good at putting the kabosh on on BO’s lover/drug dealer: http://larrysinclair.com/

  3. The White House will mess up and treat one or two of the reporters badly and they’ll likely retaliate by publishing something damaging.

    Reality though, is that there are probably contracts between the administration and the press so any lips slip can be civilly challenged.

    The MSM is really where I lay most of the blame. They’re going to be awful surprised when they’re the first lined up against the wall.
