Video: Obama WH “biggest bunch of crybabies”

posted at 1:00 pm on September 19, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

What, this White House is thin-skinned? Do tell! Chris Wallace dishes on the Obama administration’s press relations group, which he calls “the biggest bunch of crybabies” he’s seen in 30 years of reporting. Wallace compares the Obama administration very unfavorably to the Reagan media handlers, who always acted professional even after a stinging news report. Wallace says that attitude came “from the top down,” as Reagan himself approached the news media with poise and comportment. The new administration? Not so much:

Watch until the end, when Wallace zings his colleagues in the White House press corps. “I think it works with the others — it doesn’t work with me.” So who’s getting intimidated by the White House these days?

Tipping point, as in “The Elite Media, formerly known as the Main Stream Media, is on an irreversable downward slide”…

Long overdue, IMHO…

Or is it the SRM -State Run Media?

nothing in regards to what I said, about Fox’s blatant attack machine on Obama and the Dems. Instead I get projection. So, I bid you adieu.

He doesn’t understand Americans because he was not raised as an American.

+100, Bingo, Bravo Zulu, On target, Spot on olde man, SCORE etc.

It is amazing how many people voted for the Jug eared kenyan wetback not understanding that his values are the antithesis of mainstream American values.

What the heck blinded people to that point? I keep getting Within Temptation’s “Deceiver of Fools” running through my brain.

He feeds on fear
Poisons the truth
To gain their faith
To lead the way
To a world of decay

I’m with Glenn, their new name should be “fringe media”.

Compared to the yellow journalism of Fox News I would think that would be a compliment.

Yellow Journalism is defined as:

Yellow journalism is a type of journalism that downplays legitimate news in favor of eye-catching headlines that sell more newspapers. It may feature exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, sensationalism, or unprofessional practices by news media organizations or journalists.

I love watching PMSNBC admit their irrelevance.

This morning while discussing this clip on Morning RINO, Joe ScarbRINO asked Mike Barnacle what was the FIRST network Obama should have been booked on after Meet the Press and Barnacle answered “FOX News.”

Haha…even THEY admit no one’s watching them.

(my excuse…keeping my enemies close.)
