It took some time, but the Mainstream Media is, finally, starting to get sick and tired of being President Obama’s rubes. Here’s the latest example, from CBS:
There was some rich irony at the White House today — President Obama signed the Press Freedom Act, and then promptly refused to take any questions.
That’s the lede to a story on some puff-piece legislation for the State Department. After a two-line summary of the new law, there’s this:
Recall that last Friday the president refused to take any questions after delivering his angry statement on the oil spill in the Rose Garden. And he has not held a prime-time White House news conference in many months, despite much pleading from pundits and members of the media.
Put plainly, the story — the narrative — has changed. The press used to just spoon feed you whatever the White House wanted you to swallow. But now? Now, the story is becoming: “Obama treats us like crap.” Or, to put it more simply: “Waaaaaaaaaaah!”
MSM, I’m glad you’re finally catching on. But what took you so long?
