Posted on 04/28/2011 6:50:47 PM PDT by therightliveswithus
Is this really that big of a surprise? A reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle recorded several anti-Obama protesters who disrupted an Obama fundraiser. In other words, she was reporting the news. The Administration's response: the reporter, Carla Marinucci, was "removed as a [press] pool reporter..."
Not really much, but the Administration found it worthy to take away Ms. Marinucci's privileges.
The SF Gate provides addition details:
The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights.
White House officials have banished one of the best political reporters in the country from the approved pool of journalists covering presidential visits to the Bay Area for using now-standard multimedia tools to gather the news.
The Chronicle's Carla Marinucci - who, like many contemporary reporters, has a phone with video capabilities on her at all times - pulled out a small video camera last week and shot some protesters interrupting an Obama fundraiser at the St. Regis Hotel.

“The Administration’s response: the reporter, Carla Marinucci, was “removed as a [press] pool reporter...”
Thin skin bruises easily.
Does the administration still consider Fox News to not be a legitimate news organization?
Tyrants and dictators do crap like this.
No form of dissent, or any news of dissent, against Dear Leader must exist. Everyone must love Dear Leader.
The communists will close every door possible. We have a dictatorship in Washington.
But, but, Hillary once shreiked that “we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration”, meaning any presidential administration’s policies.
Or did she mean only Republican administrations? So then good Democrats cannot be questioned?????
Obama has the mentality of a leftist dictator.
This is the sort of thing that we need to post to our Facebooks for our liberal/moderate friends to see since there is no excuse for it and no way to explain it away.
Marinucci? Obama also went ballistic over Roberto Micheletti preventing Zelaya from making himself dictator of Honduras in 2009.
Looks like anti-Italian prejudice to me.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well at the store today I bought a pen with a pocket clip which is a voice activated digital camera with voice which will record 2 hours in memory. It is a normal looking working pen. You twist the barrel in half and then plug it right into your laptop to download the file. It only costs $139.00. You cannot tell it's a camera and microphone!
The Won should be met by groups on every corner he passes, all yelling “YOU SUCK!” at the top of their lungs.
That would definately get under his skin.
He’s a creepy self-centered sociopath.
“The Administrations response: the reporter, Carla Marinucci, was removed as a [press] pool reporter..”
Can you just IMAGINE the amount of faked outrage and screams of “FASCISM!” if Bush had done something like this??
It was bad enough when Tony Snow “frozeout” Helen Thomas, if you recall.
It's worse than that. From the article:
What's worse: more than a few journalists familiar with this story are aware of some implied threats from the White House of additional and wider punishment if Carla's spanking became public.
