Press Groups Call on Obama Admin
to End ‘Pervasive’ Secrecy Practices

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by CJ Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/8/2014 10:35:10 PM

Dozens of leading U.S. press organizations are urging the Obama administration to live up to its transparency promises and reverse a trend of increased secrecy at federal agencies. Thirty-eight national press organizations and transparency groups—including the Society for Professional Journalists, Investigative Reporters and Editors, and the Poynter Institute—called on the Obama administration to end “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies,” in a letter to the White House released Tuesday. “Over the past two decades, public agencies have increasingly prohibited staff from communicating with journalists unless they go through public affairs offices or through political appointees,” the

Those so called leading US press organizations are therefor encouraged to live up to their urgings toward the obama administration and to start publishing the news, and by that I mean the whole news. Not just the news good for the socialist liberals but the news as it is discovered.

The whole news and nothing but the news would suit me just fine. What is ironic is they urge the obama administration to correct the self same habits they have themselves in spades.

Something that has to do with a black kettle comes to mind.

Anyone graduating from any university with a degree in journalism should be laughed out of the graduation ceremonies, followed closely behind by the education majors.

The women´s studies majors shouldn´t even bother to attend, while their parents should be supplied with razor blades so they can slit their wrists for for flushing $200,00 down the toilet.

The anthropology majors and their folks can peacefully overdose on pills. They meant well.

So Obama has an "enemies list". It consists of everyone who doesn´t write favorably about him. From history, we know that enemies´ lists are just the abcesses.

When the press groups are targeted, they start complaining. From there, it only piques their interest as to what is being hidden from them. And when they think they´re being treated like mushrooms, some will start to dig.

Obama didn´t know when to leave well enough alone. Power has gone to his head and made him mad -- not angry mad. He believes that almost all American media and press are on his side and if they are not, they soon will be. He will see to that. He MUST control the outflow of information to the American public.

If enough media finally catch on, that Obama is hiding far more than meets the jaundiced eye, they will start behaving like starving bloodhounds on a hot trail.

A little bitty story here, a teensy little story there and soon the cracked dike will break. The media who are there to facilitate the break will be heroes.

Obama´s dictatorial behavior in trying to control media access to his myriad foreign and domestic flops is beginning to wear thin on the media themselves. He isn´t invincible. With the media doing their jobs, and with public outcry reaching cacophonous decibel levels, he could go down.

Keep praying. It´s working.

How can a letter of this nature be so late in coming? That´s the news here. How could responsible news agencies wait so long to complain about politically driven news and information.

Forget "over the past two decades," under Obama control of the news has clearly accelerated before our eyes. Keep citizens in the dark and the take over will go a lot faster, especially when a president is willing to use his phone and pen to advance an agenda of destruction.

The US press should be ashamed of itself. They have not only shirked their duty but have even been complicit in the dictatorial takeover by Obama.

How could they possibly have accepted such conditions as laid down to them in the Murrieta holding area for illegals...no pictures, no audio recordings, no interviews, and only such items and information as would be released to them weeks later?! What a sham.

The UK press (and particularly the Daily Mail) is showing them how it´s done in a still free country with a still functional press and still existing set of journalistic standards. If not for them, we would be almost totally in the dark. Thank goodness Drudge features their reports so prominently.

This administration is saturated by extreme ideologues. Their focus is always on how any issue shakes out politically. That is what ideologues do. It is all about framing the narrative. Of course, they want to control the message. It is how they get things done that they could not normally get done with any outside scrutiny. The media abdicated their role because of their support of Obama. They decided to become cheerleaders. They discarded any curiosity regarding Obama that would paint him in a unflattering light. NOW they want to complain about access? Please. I can only laugh at their naïveté. Obama played them because they let him. The time for objectivity and personal integrity has passed. The media is like Dr. Frankenstein and they are just now realizing they can´t control the monster they created. Fools, once you sell your soul, it remains sold.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — The University of Illinois is reminding football fans that its new smoke-free campus policy applies to tailgaters in Memorial Stadium parking lots. Signs were posted at entrances to all UI parking lots and the stadium in time for Saturday´s season-opener against Youngstown State. The campus went smoke-free on Jan. 1 after a student referendum. Hundreds of other college campuses around the country have done the same. But don´t expect a heavy-handed crackdown.

AUSTIN — A tweet mischaracterizing Gov. Rick Perry’s indictment was sent Sunday evening from his personal account, setting the social network abuzz and leaving his critics fuming. An hour later, the message was deleted, with his account calling it “unauthorized.” “I do not condone the tweet and I have taken it down,” a message from the account read at 8:20 p.m. The original tweet, which went out almost exactly an hour earlier, included a graphic mocking Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, whose drunk-driving arrest led Perry to threaten to veto funding for the state’s Public Integrity Unit unless she resigned.

Images showing high-powered military rifles in the hands of law enforcement in Ferguson, Mo., after the police shooting of an unarmed black man focused attention on a controversial Pentagon program that supplies that kind of weaponry to local police departments. Now reports reveal how some of those guns have been lost by law enforcement officials who received the weapons. Take Huntington Beach, Calif., which was given 23 M-16 rifles and has reported one missing. “Bottom line is the gun is not here and we were suspended from the program, haven’t received anything since 1999,” Huntington Beach Police Department Lt.

If you´re out at the beach this weekend - like most Americans hope they will be - it might be an idea to look up. About 5,000 feet up, actually. That´s about where Belgian photographer Antoine Rose will be making his works of art. The self-taught snapper initially started out taking pictures of kiteboarders as head photographer of the Kiteboarding World Cup, according to Fast Company. Then, while covering finals in Ipanema and Copacabana, Rose turned his lens from the water to the beach - and that´s where the magic happened. While the resultant photos appear heavily edited - almost

Islamist militiamen stormed the residential annex of America´s embassy in Tripoli on Sunday then took the time to give curious journalists in the Libyan capital a tour. The group has taken up residence in the annex just over a month after diplomats fled to Tunisia over fears of mounting violence in the North African nation in recent months. An Associated Press journalist walked through the U.S. Embassy compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside. Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched.

Following a video by Malik King, in which the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is converted into the Pull Your Pants Up challenge, CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill argued the challenge internalized the idea that black men bear a partial responsibility for attracting undue police attention. “It suggests that somehow there’s a connection between black male profiling and our pants being sagging,” Lamont Hill said. “Before black people pulled their pants down, they were still being locked up…If we continue to tell young black men that they can behave or dress or otherwise demonstrate their way out of police oppression or

CRANSTON, R.I.- Police say an armored truck overturned on a Rhode Island highway, spilling bags of money that quickly drew passers-by. Deputy Fire Chief Paul Valletta Jr. tells The Providence Journal that the Garda truck was southbound on Route 10 on Saturday afternoon when the driver lost control. The truck swerved off the highway and onto the grass and rolled onto its left side. Money stored in clear plastic bags and white canvas duffel bags flew out of the truck. As state police watched, money was transferred to a second Garda truck that was called in. Valletta says passers-by swarmed

He reminded political watchers that while he is not as smooth and erudite as some politicians, he can energize a room and vary his pace and volume — from fiery applause lines to quiet and sober narrative to mischievous barbs. His remarks, as prepared for delivery, on several topics were noteworthy. Playing in his home state, he played the Texas card, a preview of the campaign he is likely to run if he seeks the presidency in 2016:

Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August.

Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.
