Hey, media, Obama’s just not that into you

Andrew Malcolm has another entry for the Someone Left The Irony On Department.  A trade group of black newspaper publishers named Barack Obama their Newsmaker of the Year, and want to give him an award.  Obama finds this so delightful that he’s made it an event … but guess who won’t get invitations?

Barack Obama was elected commander-in-chief promising to run the most transparent presidential administration in American history.

This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him “Newsmaker of the Year.”

The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon.

The Obama White House has closed the press award ceremony to the press.

You know what’s really embarrassing?  When someone gets so enraptured over another, fawning after them, issuing dreamy paeans to their sheer glory, and all the while the object of their affection barely knows they’re alive.

Let’s face it, media: Obama’s just not that into you.

Usually, failing to get an invitation to the kewl party provides a wake-up call to the besotten fool.  Think the media will wise up now?  Me neither.

Don’t have time to look for link, but a few weeks ago the Washington Press Association, or similar, had a meeting and the Obama spokesperson attending threw out the press.

Does he really care about anyone but himself? [The true mark of a narcistic]

The more he throws them out, the harder they will fellate him.

Did anyone get a commment from the White community newspapers?

I guess one of the papers is by the Nation of Islam. That’s why there’s no press coverage.

It’s a hate night.

He’ll start wooing them again in 2011
