More Yes Men Please

Here's a story you won't see in the MSM: Yesterday Obama kicked off reporters from The New York Post, the Washington Times, and the Dallas Morning News - reporters who had been traveling with Obama's campaign all this time but just happened to belong to papers that endorse John McCain. Obama's campaign cited the need to make space for the far more important black monthly magazines Essence and Jet, who I bet will give Obama a real rough time with hardhitting stories like this one about the best black couples in politics today.

Now to be fair, McCain hasn't allowed Maureen Dowd and Time columnist Joe Klein to come along with his campaign in the past, but there's a difference between barring news reporters versus barring columnists. The first kind of journalist aims to deliver objective accounts of the facts, while the second type is given far more free rein with speculation and reporting.

I guess this is a sneak peek of what we can expect from an Obama administration. God help us all.

And look at this story about Joe the Plumber,

"Vanessa Niekamp said that when she was asked to run a child-support check on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher on Oct. 16, she thought it was routine. A supervisor told her the man had contacted the state agency about his case."

What happened to the first amendment rights????
