Say it ain’t so? First Helen Thomas let uhu huh hu huhu Robert Gibbs , who is quite possibly the WORSE Press Secretary EVER have it and now Major Garrett lets him have it most recently for the obvious corrupt and illegal behavior this administration has been engaging in. Outstanding!
Thomas revealed more frustration in an interview with CNS News:
“Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try. “What the hell do they think we are, puppets?” Thomas said. “They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.”
Thomas said she was especially concerned about the arrangement between the Obama Administration and a writer from the liberal Huffington Post Web site. The writer was invited by the White House to President Obama’s press conference last week on the understanding that he would ask Obama a question about Iran from among questions that had been sent to him by people in Iran.
“When you call the reporter the night before you know damn well what they are going to ask to control you,” Thomas said. “I’m not saying there has never been managed news before, but this is carried to fare-thee-well–for the town halls, for the press conferences,” she said. “It’s blatant. They don’t give a damn if you know it or not. They ought to be hanging their heads in shame.”
Helen Thoms and Chip Reid take Gibb’s to the Cleaners!
Major Garrett taking Gibb’s to the Cleaners!!
I wonder-will anymore reporters manage to grow some balls and ask teh tough questions that DEMAND asking???
