How important is it for Obama to maintain his human shield of Treason Media reporters? He's tossed reporters from papers that endorsed McCain off his airplane:
The Obama campaign has decided to heave out three newspapers from its plane for the final days of its blitz across battleground states -- and all three endorsed Sen. John McCain for president!Holy cow! Other than the conservative blogosphere - especially Stanley Kurtz's in-depth (and probably in vain) reporting - and Fox News, he has gotten little actual scrutiny compared to say Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber, but he's being actively protected by outfits like the LA Times (which is hiding the video from that PLO guy's party) and the NY Times, who are being shown as liars by their own archives:
The NY POST, WASHINGTON TIMES and DALLAS MORNING NEWS have all been told to move out by Sunday to make room for network bigwigs -- and possibly for the inclusion of reporters from two black magazines, ESSENCE and JET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Despite pleas from top editors of the three newspapers that have covered the campaign for months at extraordinary cost, the Obama campaign says their reporters -- and possibly others -- will have to vacate their coveted seats so more power players can document the final days of Sen. Barack Obama's historic campaign to become the first black American president.
Some told the DRUDGE REPORT that the reporters are being ousted to bring on documentary film-makers to record the final days; others expect to see on board more sympathetic members of the media, including the NY TIMES' Maureen Dowd, who once complained that she was barred from McCain's Straight Talk Express airplane.
From today's circle-the-wagons smooch:Joseph Goebbels would be so proud of Barry. When McCain is mean to the press, they bash him for it. Will those still on the plane wonder what's going on or are they so enamored with The One that as long as they get to bask in the glorious aura of Dear Leader they'll go along with the program? (Duh.)[Khalidi] taught at universities in Lebanon until the mid-’80s, and some critics accuse him of having been a spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization. Mr. Khalidi has denied working for the group, and says he was consulted as an expert by reporters seeking to understand it.Tom Friedman report for the New York Times, June 9, 1982:The Israelis are out to "crush the P.L.O.," said Rashid Khalidi, a director of the Palestinian press agency, Wafa. He said they hope that by doing so, they will undermine the international recognition the P.L.O. has gained and eliminate its demands for an independent Palestinian state as a rallying point for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
