NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
The media are either smitten, terrified or shut out from the Obama administration, enabling tyranny to rule.
In a March 2 column from the New York Post, titled “Beat the Press,” long-time White House correspondents commiserated over Bob Woodward being threatened by the White House. The column describes the threatening tones that started during Obama’s 2008 campaign, if one dared to report objectively.
One Washington veteran said, “I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary. She was doing her job and they were trying to bully her. In an email, they called her the vilest names ...”
It continues: “The reporters I’ve spoken to who have covered multiple administrations have said this is tighter, more restricted than other administrations.”
It was liberal Glen Greenwald of the Guardian-UK who exposed Obama’s “warped and distorted” view of the Patriot Act, saying, “There is a massive apparatus within the U.S. government that with complete secrecy has been building this enormous structure that has only one goal, and that is to destroy privacy and anonymity, not just in the United States, but around the world.”
With Fast and Furious, bypassing Wars Powers Act on Libya, Obama AWOL during the massacre at Benghazi, judge shopping for warrants, monitoring reporters, using IRS to harass groups and persons who promote the Constitution, and many, many more abuses of power, it’s time for the media to put on their big boy or big girl pants and stand up to the thoroughly corrupt bullies and thugs in the White House.
Also, when reporting on national news, ABC, CBS and CNN should give disclaimers that upper management has siblings or spouses working in either the Obama administration or high Cabinet-level positions.
