What Bias?….Obama Holds Secret Meeting With Progressive Journo’s



Yeah, no bias….

The White House held a background briefing Friday to discuss Obamacare implementation with a handful of journalists from liberal and progressive outlets.

Slate blogger Matthew Yglesias posted a photograph to Instagram Friday featuring himself and other liberal journalists at the White House, with the caption “#thistown.”

Yglesias’ photograph features American Prospect staff writer Jamelle Bouie and MSNBC’s Benjy Sarlin attending the briefing.

Yglesias, who publicly cheered the death of conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, is known as a member of a tight-knit circle of progressive bloggers that includes Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein and low-rated MSNBC host Chris Hayes.

Klein and Hayes garnered conservative criticism in 2011 for attending an off-the-record White House briefing at which Obama disclosed his strategy on the temporary payroll tax holiday. Klein also set off a round of controversy in November 2011 for briefing Senate Democratic staffers on the super committee.

Reporter Adam Housley doesn’t like it one bit:

As a journo…I have a real problem with the White House holding secret meetings with progressive journalists to promote its agenda

That is completely against everything we are taught. Completely wrong. Might as well pay em.

Professional journalists are supposedly taught to keep their beliefs out of their reporting but how is that possible when not only does the party in power invite only a certain segment of journalists to pass on their propaganda but the journalists accept this totally inappropriate invitation?

It’s not possible and after the Journolist scandal and all these secret meetings it is no longer possible to deny the bias in our media. The age of real journalism is gone. There is no ethics in that profession anymore. It’s all about your side winning no matter the damage it does to the professions ethics.

Sad but true.

But the MSM is NOT “in the bag” for, or “in bed with” with Obama… Right! They were just in the media “strategy huddle” to be OBJECTIVE!! That’s why all DISSENTING MEDIA was EXCLUDED.. you know.. so the Obama team could be FAIR, and BALANCED!!! LMAO!!

Matty got called out by Dylan Byers at Daily Caller, and promptly pulled a total dick move.

Our president should have a czar for the honorable profession of disseminating propaganda to his lackeys, it’s beneath his station to be personally directing propaganda, it only reinforces the public’s perception of a Chicago hack politician trying to runthe country. It’s hard to imagine a constitutional scholar doing something so stupid.

What was Ofrauds early campaign rhetoric…something about “Transparency in the White House” ???

How in your face is this Lie ???

Well, it seems to me it gives more people reason ‘Not To Believe the Liberal Media’ …. after this, and at this point, if you do believe it…you surely ARE a lost cause.

These people in the media that are undermining our Constitution and what it stands for are traitors, plain and simple.

So, Oblowme and the dominant, liberal, establishment mass media and leftist blogosphere are in collusion again?
So……..what else is new? A great number of us saw this a LONG time ago.
