White House Bullies Liberal SF Paper

No one is exempt from the tyrannical arrogance of the Imperial Obama Presidency, not even the Left.
The Obama White House is now bullying the liberal San Francisco Chronicle for its audacity in posting a video of left wing protesters at a recent Obama fundraiser in Sodom the City by the Bay.
But do you think the Left will wake up to the Obama nightmare?
They’ll follow him like lemmings right over the cliff, just as they did in 2008. The only problem is they’re taking the rest of America along with them.
From Carolyn Lochhead, “SF Chronicle Video Prompts White House Threat,” San Francisco Chronicle, April 29, 2011:

The White House threatened Thursday to exclude The San Francisco Chronicle from pooled coverage of its events in the Bay Area after the paper posted a video of a protest at a San Francisco fundraiser for President Obama last week, Chronicle Editor Ward Bushee said. White House guidelines governing press coverage of such events are too restrictive, Bushee said, and the newspaper was within its rights to film the protest and post the video.

The White House press office would not speak on the record about the issue….

About 200 donors paying $5,000 to $38,500 each attended the event at the St. Regis Hotel in the city, a day after Obama visited Facebook headquarters in Silicon Valley touting the proliferation of “new media” breaking the confines of traditional journalism.

At the St. Regis event, a group of protesters who paid collectively $76,000 to attend the fundraiser interrupted Obama with a song complaining about the administration’s treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier who allegedly leaked U.S. classified documents to the WikiLeaks website.

What makes the White House threat even more ridiculous is the fact that the San Francisco Chronicle was not the only people who videotaped the protest, as you can see from this Russia Today video:

Talking about shooting himself in the foot! Does he think all those people at the dinner are mutes who will never breathe a word about what happened?
What if the SF Chronicle refused to cover any Obama campaign stories with the 2012 race just starting? You can’t win a race based on Facebook Friends alone. I love the fact that the Chronicle gave the video to the Russia Times!
