Veteran Journalists: Press Treats Obama Like a Monarch

http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2011/05...

Several veteran and prize-winning journalists who covered presidents from John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush say that the current crop of White House correspondents are too timid and deferential and have played a role in killing the impact of presidential news conferences.

"If you watch an Obama news conference, and watched a Bush news conference previous to that, where correspondents sit in their seats with their hands folded on their laps, [it's] as if they are in the room with a monarch and they have to wait to be recognized by the president," says Sid Davis, the former NBC Washington bureau chief who covered nine presidents. "It looks like they are watching a funeral service at [Washington funeral firm] Joseph Gawler's and it shouldn't be that way." Adds Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Haynes Johnson, "It's all very stale, very structured, very pale."

And longtime NBC and ABC reporter Sander Vanocur: "You want to know what's wrong with the press? The press is what's wrong with the press."

It not interesting with out Helen Thomas, She had the courage to stand up to them all.

the "journalists" are a bunch

the "journalists" are a bunch of brainwashed underachievers who got their present job solely because they are morons.
they get easy, respected, good paying jobs and benefits in exchange to report stupid shiat like "the planet is warming", "Iraq has WMD's", "Obama is right" or "TSA is keeping America safe"...those reports pays for their mortgage, gas, kids education, gym membership, nice clothes, etc.

They know that if they got fired the only other option for them is to work for McDonalds flipping burgers...is their own lives and futures at stake. So yes, they have ZERO interests in searching the truth.

The kings of this world want the president to be king like

It is these very oppressors that push for expanded executive power.

These evil ones wish to conscript our office of president to have him/her act as a subservient king; same as the belgian king has been put in place and propped up by the British monarchy to serve the British crown.

There is no independence for America any more. We are interdependent not on the UN, but worse to our bloodthirsty foreign creditors who seek payment by causing our beloved children to toil and slave away as debt servants.

The media

do what they are told and so do the Presidents. One big happy club and we are not invited, unless there is a tab to be paid.

George Carlin was a saint

one big club & we are not in it.

Sander Vanocur is right.

The news and the reporters these days are an embarrassment.
