    Why didn't they want him to speak to guests? What about the other reporters?

    Taking your questions in reverse order;

    What about the other reporters?
    According to the OP, he was the only reporter there.

    Why didn't they want him to speak to guests?
    And that's the million dollar question.

    also... perhaps you missed this part of the linked story... assuming you bothered to read it...
    The Orlando Sentinel published a brief blog taking note of the lengths to which one staffer went to prevent pool reporter Scott Powers from talking to people during a fundraiser for Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., at the home of a wealthy developer.
    This was the very first paragraph of the story. So, he DIDN'T go straight to Drudge.

    Why? Seems the Obama was trying to hide something from this reporter. WAS he was the only reporter allowed there?

    How would I react? I'd think exactly what I thought here: "There's probably more to this story."
    Looks like so far the liberal media isn't reporting on it, so I doubt there is more to the story. They will just ignore it, is my bet.

    Interesting.

    So on the one hand we're supposed to believe that a man is falsely imprisoned, or held against his will, or whatever, and he got word out to his employer -- and on the other hand, neither he nor his employer called the cops?

    Huh.

    I guess this is the part where common sense gets re-branded "liberal spin."
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    No, "liberal spin" is deliberately misrepresenting what's being said. I'm conservative, show me where I claimed he was falsely imprisoned.

    I tried to picture it. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say it would have been all over CNN, MSNBC, and the lead in to all the nightly news, if it was Cheney's staff. It also wouldn't have been about his staff, it would have been about Cheney.

    There are things about this story that just don't add up. Like why the staffer put him there, or why no one called the cops. Things just don't add up.
