Yet another proof of POTUS media manipulation

When a liberal columnist like Helen Thomas - which I was quite unfamiliar with until yesterday - refuses to be muzzled by The White House manipulations, well... I guess that says it all, right?

The Media Research Center is congratulating her. And after yesterday's rant, that is flying all over the net, during an interview with CNSNews.com, she blasted:
“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.”

Really? How come nobody have noticed it before we have been having a State Run Media, biased and blindly in bed with the current administration and its cronies, waaaay before election day?

I guess only these crazy, right-wingers Cuban Americans - who, BTW, know a thing or two about censorship and state-run media - and their American conservatives allies were the only ones seeing the fireball that was coming...

Oh, boy... the more one stirs the landfill, the more it stinks.

I was thinking the same thing. Some people see an older woman and refuse to listen. I see a woman that despite her political opinions has lived through many presidents so when she tells you that she's NEVER seen anything like this - the USA needs to stop and listen.
