White House admits to controlling the media

Urgh!

President Obama’s presidential campaign focused on “making” the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was “controlled,” White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

So does that mean that journalists no longer exsist or are lazy?

Continued Dunn: “Whether it was a David Plouffe video or an Obama speech, a huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was. … Making the press cover what we were saying.”

Well at least they admit to controlling everything, now maybe people will ask the questions that need to be asked, although doubtfull.

And this all comes on the heels of the criticism from TV commentator Glenn Beck on Friday, saying that a Mao Tse-tung quote Beck took issue with was picked up from legendary GOP strategist Lee Atwater.

Either way like it or not, media outlets shoudl be reporting and checking facts and not spinning the facts either for that matter, and the white house should not be accusing of a media outlet, if its wrong, prove it otherwise but forging a war on a media outlet that has one of the largest followings on cable news is not going to get you any more new friends….and lets face it, but without Fox News, we would still be blind in regards to the former “green czar” Van Jones

Here is the video of Dunn’s statements

Fair reporting covering the White House and Obama Administration UPDATE: Van Jones resigns

Who is Van Jones?

Well if you watch or read New York Times, Washington Post, NBC Nightly news, ABC World News or CBS Evening News…you more than likely have never heard that he called republicans Assholes.

This is also the man that said ‘Only white suburban kids shoot up schools’

I’m surprised many of these outlets did not report it, you would think for many they would want it out there that republicans are assholes. I’m sure Van Jones would have received a new fan base.

Van Jones has resigned, so I guess we wont be hearing from him anytime soon

Republicans are ‘A**holes’, says an Obama advisor UPDATE – We have the apology

UPDATE – We have the apology from Van Jones

_______________________________________________________________

Van Jones, the Obama administration’s “green jobs” adviser, told a group of listeners earlier in the year that the reason Republicans are stonewalling the president is because they’re “assholes.”

Fair enough, I’m sure many of them are as are most politicans. However, as an advisor of O-man, you might want to stop hanging out with Harry Reid and contracting the same disease he seems to have now.

In case you have not heard, time$ are tough out there and it might not be $o ea$y to get another job.

Fast Forward to around the 40second mark
