NY Times Journalist Fed-Up with Obama Regime: "“Most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered”

Remember when the media rushed to talk about transparency in the Barack Obama “Hope and Change” era? Good times, good times. Leonard Downie, who once worked as the Executive Editor of the Washington Post and wrote a novel about Washington corruption and the Iraq War, finds a bigger and non-fictional problem in the successor to George W. Bush. Downie gives the Post a preview of his report from the Committee to Protect Journalists which outlines the Obama war on reporters and their sources:

“A memo went out from the chief of staff a year ago to White House employees and the intelligence agencies that told people to freeze and retain any e-mail, and presumably phone logs, of communications with me,” Sanger said. As a result, longtime sources no longer talk to him. “They tell me: ‘David, I love you, but don’t e-mail me. Let’s don’t chat until this blows over.’ ”

Sanger, who has worked for the Times in Washington for two decades, said, “This is most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered.”

What else should one expect

What else should one expect from a bunch of communists, journalists in particular? The media knew about Obama's connections to Bill Ayers and turned a blind eye.

And now they're surprised about Obama's closefisted approach?

As if they didn't see the punch coming from 10,000 miles away.

Denial is more powerful than any drug on earth. Drugs only help hasten the denial of reality, which is why the CIA loves to ship drugs in to America, and alcohol gets a free pass. "Drugs and Alchol." That's a crock. They are one in the same.

Reality sucks. Is denial really a natural human self defense mechanism, or is it just flat out dangerous to society?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
