The Obama administration is quick to celebrate the historic significance of just about every action it takes, but the White House is unlikely to embrace the claim that it’s the “most hostile” in U.S. history when it comes to freedom of the press.
Nevertheless, that is precisely the charge being leveled by former White House reporter Bob Franken.
The talking heads at MSNBC where discussing complaints from photojournalists that the Obama administration is not allowing media photographers to take their own shots, while pushing photos from White House-approved photographers.
“Let’s use the ‘P’ word here: it’s propaganda,” Franken told his fellow panelists. “Every administration tries to manipulate the press, but this is the most hostile to the media that has been in United States history.”
“The reason I say most hostile is because of the Justice Department moves that they’ve made against the press,” Franken continued. “Obviously, they have a contempt for the journalistic process.”
An incredible statement considering just how favorable the media has been to Barack Obama, but even more so that is occurred on MSNBC. As for Franken, it may be a while before you see his mug on the pro-Obama network again.
