Old-school journalists ‘pi**ed’ about
Gayle King’s vacation with the Obamas

New York Post, by Carlos Green

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/21/2017 4:32:00 AM

Gayle King’s serious CBS colleagues had a lot to say about her recent yacht jaunt with former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama in Tahiti, and it wasn’t positive. “The ‘Capital J’ journalists are pi**ed and raving mad that she was on a yacht with the Obamas over the weekend. The old-school people were talking about it. She shouldn’t be doing that. She’s an anchor of a news program that covers the White House. You’re held to a different standard. It’s one thing to be friendly. It’s another thing to go vacationing on a yacht,” a source told us of the

Gayle King who? Please note how everyone is going to the Obamas out of the country. The Obamas are not returning to the U.S. anytime soon. He´s up to his neck in this Obamagate. Bottomline, he´s in hiding.

The onliest reason these clowns are pi**ed is that they weren´t also invited - particularly after all they had done for the messiah and his lovely and gracious consort.

#2 is exactly right! The msm is "pi**ed and raving mad" that they didn´t have their own yacht to report on obama who they believe to be the leader of the world! The msm has no standards when it comes to pimping leftist ideology so that "held to a different standard" is a red herring.

Someone should explain to CBS that they have zero credibility when it comes to covering the Obamas anyway so vacationing with them has no impact.

The Kennedys knew how to use the press. JFKs only occupation before he was elected was listed by him as ´journalist.´ (He was also the sinker of navy boats, but...)
He played the media as well as they could be played in his frequent press conferences. And his personal relationships with reporters kept them silent when he behaved like a horndog in the White House, with every woman he could bed. He deflowered a 19 year old White House intern in Jackie´sd bed. (Jackie was out of town at the time - might have been on Aristotle Onassis´s yacht, recovering from the loss of her baby in 1963.)

Scaramucci and the need for control

No matter who is in the Oval Office, the job of the White House communications office is to create positive press attention that promotes the president´s agenda. When new communications director Anthony Scaramucci was introduced to the public on July 21, he seemed qualified, deftly answering questions and charming the press. By Wednesday, things were going downhill. Scaramucci´s financial disclosures were published in the press. In a now-deleted tweet, he claimed it was due to a leak that was a felony and said he´d be contacting the FBI and the Justice Department. But the real drama came from Scaramucci´s decision to tag

While everyone is fixated on President Trump’s unbecoming and inexplicable assault on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the media has been trying to sneak away from the “Russian collusion” story. That’s right. For all the breathless hype, the on-air furrowed brows and the not-so-veiled hopes that this could be Watergate, Jared Kushner’s statement and testimony before Congress have made Democrats and many in the media come to the realization that the collusion they were counting on just isn’t there. As the date of the Kushner testimony approached, the media thought it was going to advance and refresh the story. But Kushner’s clear,

From a press release that hit on Thursday… House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Judiciary Committee Republicans today sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate unaddressed matters, some connected to the 2016 election and others, including many actions taken by Obama Administration officials like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The letter follows yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee approval of H. Res. 446, as amended, to request documents pertaining to the FBI’s investigation

Even when Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, liberalism remains the default ideology of the federal government. A Republican Senate could not muster even 50 votes for the full repeal of Obamacare´s taxes and spending. Six Republican senators who had voted for repeal in 2015, when the party was merely pretending it was possible, flipped on Wednesday rather than deliver. Five of the six represent states President Trump won in November. The sixth hails from a state Trump lost by less than 3 points. An argument can be made that repealing these parts of Obamacare while leaving its regulatory

Once upon a time, the greatest sin journalists could commit was to make themselves a part of the story. On Sunday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski did just that, soaking up the fluorescent spotlight on the cover of New York magazine and dishing about their “star-crossed relationship with the president” — and, of course, each other — in its pages. During trying times, contentiousness between the press and the president has often morphed into spectacle, with anchors such as Sam Donaldson receiving flak from the public for seeming to enter the political arena rather than report or comment on

President Trump took a swipe at his attorney general on Wednesday for his failure to replace the acting FBI director — a curious critique give the statutory authority to appoint someone outside the normal line of succession rests squarely on the president’s shoulders. The president fired off a tweet attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions — the third in three days — and questioned why he didn’t replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. “Why didn’t A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got….big dollars ($700,000) for his wife’s political run from

As I write this, Jeff Sessions still has a job as America’s attorney general, though for all I know, he could be gone by the time you read this. You can’t label Sessions as some kind of globalist, malcontent, swampy NeverTrumper. He’s an anti-establishment immigration hard-liner who seems to have signed on with Trump’s presidential bid because he believed that Donald Trump was the one candidate who would build The Wall to protect America’s southern border and put a stop to illegal immigration. Now Sessions’ career is in tatters and, as Ann Coulter points out every day, the total number of Wall

Florida truck driver James Matthew Bradley isn´t the mastermind of the human smuggling ring that led to the grisly deaths of 10 illegal immigrants in his rig, which authorities found at a San Antonio Walmart over the weekend. He´s just a cog in the machine. Bradley may now face the death penalty for transporting up to 100 people crammed in the trailer of his 18-wheeler. But what about the open-borders overlords making a real killing off this insatiable racket? I´m looking at you, America-bashing corruptocrats in Mexico.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has ordered a full review of any military training not directly relevant to warfighting. Mattis told the services to conduct a review of the “requirements for mandatory force training that does not directly support core tasks,” according to a Friday memo obtained by Military Times. In other words, Mattis wants a full examination of all the hours of burdensome, irrelevant training service members have to undergo before deployment. “I want to verify that our military policies also support and enhance warfighting readiness and force lethality,” Mattis said. Mattis also asked for a review into what

Defining Loyalty Down

Loyalty — fealty to one’s nation, religion or smaller social group — is one of those concepts that Americans have allowed to lose its meaning. The media are the most guilty because they have decided that loyalty to the nation depends on who is president. In 1993, Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s admonished American society for “defining deviancy down.” He was speaking of social, even criminal, behavior which had been intolerable but had become tolerable because society had lowered its standards by which the conduct of citizens was to be judged. Loyalty to our nation’s security, long thought to be a citizen’s duty,

This is tremendously stupid and does Sessions a terrible disservice in not acknowledging the sincerity of his ideology. The way Trump tells it here, you’d think Sessions had glommed on to him because he’s nothing more than a political frontrunner, eager to bask in the reflected glory of a more popular, charismatic politician. In reality, Sessions gambled heavily when he backed Trump. He could have made a safe play with his colleague Ted Cruz, the conservative choice; instead he went with a nationalist whom no one else in the Senate would endorse and who seemed like the longest longshot to

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert on Tuesday refused to say whether Tillerson was happy in his position, but she did reveal that he had been on vacation this week — despite there being numerous foreign policy issues to deal with. “Just taking

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP

WASHINGTON -- The senator who was defeated by President Obama in his 2008 quest for the White House stepped in to cast the deciding vote to kill Senate Republicans´ last-gasp effort to repeal Obama´s signature healthcare legislation before the summer recess. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) were expected to vote against the "skinny repeal" -- a bare-bones repeal of only the individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax; the latter has drawn bipartisan criticism over the years.

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts’ chief executive apologized Thursday to members of the scouting community who were offended by the aggressive political rhetoric in President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the Scouts’ national jamboree. The apology came in a statement from Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, three days after Trump’s speech to nearly 40,000 scouts and adults gathered in West Virginia. Other U.S. presidents have delivered nonpolitical speeches at past jamborees. To the dismay of many parents and former scouts, Trump, a Republican, promoted his political agenda and derided his rivals, inducing some of the scouts in attendance to
