    Obama Administration punishes reporter for using multimedia

    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.

    If you read further down, you get this bit of insight:

    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. Really? That's a heavy hand usually reserved for places other than the land of the free.

    But bravery is a challenge, in particular for White House correspondents, most of whom are seasoned and capable journalists. They live a little bit in a gilded cage where they have access to the most powerful man in the world but must obey the rules whether they make sense or not.

    CBS News reporter, Mark Knoller, has publicly protested the limited press access to Obama fundraisers, calling the policy "inconsistent." "It's no way to do business," wrote Politico's Julie Mason, "especially [for] a candidate who prides himself on transparency."

    Could this turn the reporters against Obama, or just scare them into compliance with the WH's idea of "transparency"?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Did you forget "We reward our friends and punish our enemies." President Obama at his finest. It's a shame his friends aren't our friends.

    Oh my... the wrath of the leftists will be upon you. They don't even believe they are socialists, and that we have an Alinskyite mentored by a Black Lib Theology Marxist nut job, well... I'll just sit back and watch the show unwind... ROTFLOL.

    I don't think it will bother the press one bit. Hell, they accept being locked in closets... they're true believers... the last of the Kool-Aiders.

    How's the circle jerk going?

    As much as some of you obsess about Obama, I'm beginning to think you're secretly gay for him.

    Yeah, we leftists don't believe we're socialists because we have these things called "definitions of words" and "facts."

    Where is a reporter being punished? I see a women protesting, but she leaves on her own accord, so?

    Yeah, it's looking pretty 'sour grapes' to me.

    Besides. The press in this country has been behaving badly for the better part of 30 years.
