Another Journalist Tells Fox
About White House Abuse: ‘Like
My Mother Giving Me A Guilt Trip’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/4/2013 10:44:00 AM

David Brody, White House correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network joined Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade on Monday where he became the latest journalist to reveal that he was also berated by members of President Barack Obama’s administration for pursuing a story they felt was politically inconvenient. The reporter accused the White House of using emotional blackmail to keep journalists from requesting information the administration did not want to come forward with. “It was like my mother giving me a guilt trip,” Brody said. Brody revealed that in 2009 he was

Comments:
They can all keep coming forward and telling their tales of woe, but nothing will change until the media really starts pushing back on this thuggish White House. That press conference Friday was disgraceful. They still treated 0bama like their messiah. 0bama refused to call on someone like Ed Henry and we all know exactly why. Instead we get questions from the pathetic Jessica Yellin asking him why he doesn´t hold a meeting and refuse to let the Republicans leave the room.

OPPA CHICAGO GANG-MAN STYLE!

Hmmmm. Liked it better when Kim Hyun_A did it.

It´s somewhat less than amusing - when the ´press´ that had such a born-again hatred for all things Bush - even those they had to make up...

Pretends that anything but a non-stop ´fawning clique´ comprises the MSM now.

Perhaps this story would have more credibility if anyone had actually *seen* somebody pose ´tough questions´ to this administration. To date - all they´ve done is feed the Narcissism machine known as Barry Hussein Obama...

Any journalist who suffers guilt trip pangs because some political hack says mean things to him is in the wrong profession. If he´s catching flack he´s over the target. J-School 101.

“They are rabid defenders of this president,” Brody said of Obama’s staff.

Well and good that the President´s staff are his rabid defenders. OTOH, true journalists are supposed to be watchdogs of a free society, so a rightly informed citizenry can rabidly defend their freedoms.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Monday that the Obama administration is making the United States look "like a bunch of cowards" by closing 19 embassies amid intelligence reports about possible terrorist attacks. Gohmert, guest-hosting on Sean Hannity´s radio program Monday, said the administration failed to learn from last year´s deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans. "We don´t want any more people to die," Gohmert said in response to a caller´s question. "But it brings us back to the question that [then-Secretary of State] Hillary Clinton asked, what difference does

NBC 5 Investigates has learned the accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan receives extraordinary treatment in jail while victims of the attack argue they have been forgotten and mistreated by the U.S. Army. While a prisoner awaiting trial, Hasan is ferried by helicopter nearly every day, complete with an additional helicopter escort and security detail, for the 20-mile journey between the Bell County Jail and Fort Hood, courtesy of the United States Army and American taxpayers. The Army told NBC 5 Investigates the daily helicopter rides are necessary because the jail does not have the proper facilities

In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”

White House press secretary Jay Carney dismissed questions Monday about whether the Obama administration had taken its eye off the threat of terrorism since the killing of Osama bin Laden. Carney said that the “president has been clear that the threat from Al Qaeda very much remains,” and said officials were particularly concerned about affiliates of the terror group outside its main “core” in Afghanistan and Pakistan. “As Al Qaeda´s core has been diminished through the efforts of the United States and our allies, affiliate organizations, including in particular,

Chelsea Clinton, the only daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, has learned a thing or two about how to keep the door open to a future political run. Asked on CNN about the chance she might run for office someday, she gave a statement almost identical to one she made to NBC in April. “I’m grateful to live in a city and a state and a country where I really believe in my elected officials,” she said in an interview from Rwanda on CNN. “Someday, if [that] weren’t true, and I thought

As the one year anniversary of the deadly attack on an American consulate in Benghazi approaches, journalists have begun to take another look into the scandal surrounding the government’s response to that terrorist event. Last week, CNN aired two striking reports revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency had a large number of agents on the ground on the night of the attack and that a suspect in the attack has never been interviewed by investigators. Following these revelatory reports, which some in President Barack Obama’s administration believe represent a political threat,

In an exclusive to Breitbart News, Monday morning, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that unless NBC and CNN dump their planned Hillary projects, the RNC will refuse to allow either network to host any 2016 primary debates (which are ratings winners and news makers). This afternoon, via Twitter, NBC News released a statement where they claimed that the NBC News division has no involvement with a project being produced by the NBC Entertainment division. The "project" is a flashy miniseries that has already cast Academy Award-nominee Diane Lane as Hillary Clinton.

In an exclusive interview for The Grio, NBCUniversal’s African-American news and opinion website, Oprah Winfrey weighed in with her unvarnished thoughts on the killing of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Winfrey said that, in her mind, Martin’s murder and that of Emmett Till in 1955 – whose killers were also acquitted – were the “same thing.” However, she added that it is important to keep in mind how much race relations in America have progressed over the last half-century. In a clip of the interview which aired on NBC’s Today, Oprah told The Grio’s Chris

This is no snow job: President Obama´s grassroots organization has developed a plan called ´blizzarding´ for his supporters to plow into neighborhoods and communities to sock GOP critics of Obamacare, gun control, and climate change as part of its "Action August." While other elements of Obama´s Organizing for Action are planning high-tech and expensive assaults in August on GOP lawmakers, the ´blizzarding´ strategy calls on small groups or even individuals to promote the president´s agenda with a door-to-door campaign followed by hyped up social media. In email directions to supporters, OFA said "´blizzarding´ means flyering or delivering postcards

And the award goes to Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the “hottest” political figure in the country, according to a new temperature poll. Voters were asked to give politicians a number from 0-100 representing how they feel about that figure, with 0 being least favorable, or coldest, and 100 being most favorable, or warmest, in the new Quinnipiac survey on Monday. Christie’s mean score was 53.1, topping the heap. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in a close second, at 52.1 degrees, and third was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.),

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday endorsed President Obama’s move to close nearly two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates in the Middle East and Africa for the day, calling the terrorism threat behind the decision “scary.” Graham, R-S.C., said the administration’s awareness of the threats prove that the controversial surveillance by the National Security Agency is needed. Graham told CNN’s State of the Union he was recently briefed about the terrorist threat along with Vice President Joe Biden and believes the administration is making a move that takes into account the deaths of four Americans,

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
