Shutting Down the Opposition Press

In a move that Hugo Chavez would favor, Obama has kicked reporters from opposition papers who have endorsed McCain from his campaign plane. Let's see how Big Media reacts to this, after the dust up over Maureen Dowd being asked to exit the McCain plane.

Once again, Obama shows his true colors. Even richer is the purported reason for the boot. Supposedly, videographers are making a documentary about the final days of the campaign. Hot Air says it best:

It also looks a little self-indulgent. Obama’s clearing room on the plane for — what? Documentarians who will produce hagiographies about his historic importance. That fits into another pattern we’ve seen for months, one marked with fake presidential seals, The Barackopolis, and infomercials. In the coming Age of Obama, only the worshipers will get front-row seats to history.

If Obama cheats his way to victory, we might want to read more about the Gene Sharp, pictured at right.

hmmmm. so when McCain does it, Dowd's a deserving bitch, but when Obama does it, he's like Chavez?? Right . . .

Dowd is an opinion columnist not a reporter. Reporters from the NYT remained on the plane after she left. The reporters from the newspapers were booted because their newspapers endorsed McCain. See the difference?

KT, thanks for the defense. Additionally, as usual with Obama, the real issue is a pattern of bad behavior.

Can we really change hearts and minds? The ABoV did, unbelievably, because she had her eyes opened with the primary and the previously supportive media abandoning her candidate with an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason by the media.

How do we beat "team politics"?

Here's a rather chilling article written by an ex-Muslim, Ali Sina, concerning Obama's narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) which, the author explains, he shares with "good company": Hitler, Stalin, Khomeini, etc:
