  • Breaking News: Obama's Own TV Station Goes Easy On Obama

    There’s strange and then there’s this. ABC’s Jake Tapper writes:

    It’s perfectly fine, of course, for the White House to put out its own version of events — but is it right to do so by preventing actual reporters from covering something? (Even something like a pickup basketball game).

    Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn’t flattering enough?

    Is the goal to ultimately replace the pesky photographers who film what they want to and not what they’re told to (not to mention the annoying reporters who ask uncomfortable questions about, say, detainee policy and bank bailouts)?

      I would like to thank all the kids and anyonelse who was involved in trying to help in the fight to find a cure for cancer, as a person who is ill and also has a loved one who is also suffering you can't know just how very much any and all help means, to know that people care about you at a time like this means more than I am able to say! God Bless You All!

      congrats to the young ladies but can't the white house do something positive on it's own?

      What these young ladies state to say and do is commendable.

      I understand the point of the blog is, Obama picking favorites, which I do not agree with but, since the video story struck a cord, I'd like to comment: periodically we hear some claim of discovery regarding cancer and yet the cancer rate seems to go up. Hitting me, not physically, but personally. Including the rate of non survivors, also personally. Where does the charitable contributions go? How much do the victims of cancer receive? (for whatever the name of the charity the majority of proceeds should go to the patient of that named charity or it shouldn't be allowed to be called a charity. The charity shouldn't be up to the victim to find but up to the charity to be known.) How much do those that volunteer get paid?? What are they doing at cost (itemize) to research cancer? How far have researchers come? What has research so far done to reduce cancer deaths?
