Administration Hand Picks What Stories Media May Run

This is just about the most disturbing little poop nugget yet about the Obama administration.
Seems that as a condition of access they have managed to co-opt media companies into agreeing they will not run stories until/unless first vetted and edited by the Obama Administration.
Of course with most of the media already cheerleaders and lap dogs it is no wonder few noticed the difference.

Apparently, there's nothing to see here, folks. This seems to be SOP for modern campaigns. I question not the ethics of the Obama and Romney campaigns, but those of the reporters who submit and sign away their 1st Amendment rights.

Interviews should be conducted only under two conditions: It's either on-the-record or off-the record! No in-between...

For a transparent President, there sure ain't much to see. In fact when I look at him I see nothing but a liar and a cheat.

You can, but the drive by media didn't show it to you...

Bingo.

When I read this story , "new era of openness and transparency" sort of echoed in my head.
