So Tired of Being Alone
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?
