    Here we go again

    The whitehouse yesterday tried to exclude fox news from the pool, and was denying them access to Fineburg. When did we start only giving out information to those who write the stories that work in their favor?

    I think you all know what is up with the present state of the socalist union.

    this order came directly from the staff from the executive staff.... What was even more surprising, the other news media there (their competition and polor opposite on politics and views) refused to do any interviews unless all of those represented had a chance to sit in on the press conference. They convinced everyone to refuse to cover the story unless all were represented.

    At least they could agree on something [​IMG]

    there is a great deal of alarming "stuff" coming out of the executive branch these days...our founding fathers must be spinning in their graves...

    I don't want to get too far off topic or Terrie will kill me, but yeah, the times are changing. I was shocked this morning though...

    My daily news consists of

    CNN
    MSNBC
    FOX
    Al Jazeera
    Israel National News


    Oh yeah, I am a news junkie [​IMG]
