Ah, the feminists, ever kneeling in front of their Democrat masters.  They even stay in their submissive position when a woman is abused by the Obama administration.  Talk about compliant and knowing your place!  The NY Post, via Weasel Zippers, has more…

Via NY Post:

As coverage of last week’s flare-up between Bob Woodward and the White House devolved into the granular parsing of words and implications and extrapolations and possible intent, the larger point was roundly missed: the increasing pressure that White House correspondents feel when dealing with the Obama administration — to follow their narrative, to be properly deferential (!), to react to push-back by politely sitting down and shutting up. […]

Finally, this week, reporters are pushing back. Even Jonathan Alter — who frequently appears on the Obama-friendly MSNBC — came forward to say he, too, had been treated horribly by the administration for writing something they didn’t like.

“There is a kind of threatening tone that, from time to time — not all the time — comes out of these guys,” Alter said this week. During the 2008 campaign swing through Berlin, Alter said that future White House press secretary Robert Gibbs disinvited him from a dinner between Obama and the press corps over it.

“I was told ‘Don’t come,’ in a fairly abusive e-mail,” he said. “[It] made what Gene Sperling wrote [to Woodward] look like patty-cake.”

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully herIn an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”

He wound up confronting the author of the e-mail directly. “I said, ‘From now on, every e-mail you send this reporter will be on the record, and you will be speaking on behalf of the president of the United States.’ That shut it down.”

I have to applaud the feminists for being silent.  After all, their affiliation to the Democratic party pre-empts any and all actual defence of women and their rights.  They are demonstrating an incredible level of commitment, as they stand by their man, or, in this case, on their knees in front of their man.

Biden Staffer Confines Pool Reporter in Closet: How will the MSM React?


When the administration promised to be the most “transparent” ever, they should have consulted Webster’s.  I think the work they were looking for was “opaque.”

Case in point: this from the Drudge Report...

Staffers with Vice President Joe Biden confined an ORLANDO SENTINEL reporter in a closet this week to keep him from mingling with high-powered guests gathered for a Dem fundraiser.

Reporter Scott Powers was the designated "pool reporter" for the vice president's Wednesday visit to the massive Winter Park, Fla., home of developer and philanthropist Alan Ginsburg. The veep hadn't arrived yet but most of the 150 guests (minimum $500 donation) had. They were busy noshing on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese and bacon deviled eggs, before a lunch of grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps.

Not so for Powers. A "low-level staffer" put Powers in a storage closet and then stood guard outside the door, Powers told the DRUDGE REPORT. "When I'd stick my head out, they'd say, 'Not yet. We'll let you know when you can come out.'"

And no crustini for Powers, either. He made do with a bottle of water to sip as he sat at a tiny makeshift desk, right next to a bag marked "consignment." Powers was closeted at about 11:30 a.m., held for about an hour and 15 minutes, came out for 35 minutes of remarks by Biden and Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida Democrat, and then returned to his jail for the remainder of the event.

My sarcastic side really wants to come out and play here, and say, “he’s JUST a REPORTER…unworthy of talking and eating with the elites of society.”  (of course, that would be said in a “snobbish” accent ala Glenn Beck)

However, all snark aside, this is endemic of the current administration’s view and handling of the media from day one.  My thinking is that they simply did not want the reporter talking to the guests.  Perhaps they were afraid that he would hear “too much?”

As for the control of the press, here is something I covered back in 2009...

His White House Communications Director, Anita Dunn openly brags to the Dominican Republic, “Very rarely did we communicate anything through the press that we didn’t control. One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters,” said Dunn, referring to Plouffe, who was Obama’s chief campaign manager.

“We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it,” Dunn said. “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.”

So, the administration looks down on the MSM as servile peons that are to do what they are told, and they boasted about it.

The real question is this, will the MSM continue to allow themselves to be used as a bunch of prostitutes, or will the do their jobs?

I’m thinking that they’ll continue to be the “cheap dates.”
