The Obama-Media War

In its dying hour, the media used that power to ensure the double coronation of a corrupt Chicago politician with a facility for mimicking speech patterns.

And that politician rewarded it by trying to bypass it and set up his own media. Obama's vision of the proper place of the media isn't just at his feet, but under his control. Instead of dealing with the media, he has tried to cut it out of the loop by putting a larger emphasis on social media and developing narratives through think-tanks and media influencing groups. It was a power struggle that the media was initially baffled by. It had held out an ice cream cone to the little boy, only to have the little boy kick it in the shin, grab the ice cream cone and run away. -- Sultan Knish:

Your Say

And isn't that what this president does with everything? Did no one have a clue when he more than doubled the size of the WH staff at the very beginning? He intended for EVERYTHING to emanate from the White House. He even bypasses the courts (as do his various agencies). Remember when "liberals" relied on the courts to help them rule? No longer, he don't need no stinkin' judges, either.
