Welcome back to -- on the policies they'll come -- I'm John enough time of the day biased left.
Judy Miller is tea with some new zombie.
Or some thoughts on -- shocking news.
-- -- White House administration is trying to manage its message owned by Judy I'm really is this any different to any other white as ever.
At no it is not it's just I think what many reporters had failed to notice is how well President Obama does it -- Navigating a little -- -- and I noticed yes and -- getting a little snow arcade because there was what we call the overkill factor when Politico this week finally had to have its key political reporters.
Do you realize that this president has.
Had three times fewer press opportunities.
Then George W.
And do you notice where and whom he chooses to go and deliver his -- -- you know -- view all of the light shows.
As sixty -- Steve croft who did an amazingly.
Soft and I must say -- characteristic -- -- -- you know.
Really laying not a glove and Obama sitting him next to Hillary Clinton and saying.
How great was it worked against her hot is so you know.
I think the mainstream media are finally a little bit embarrassed by a be looking I probably -- why hasn't the press.
-- it seems to me is that they allow themselves to be orchestrated what have we heard anybody shouting on -- questions or on -- hostile questions.
-- -- Donaldson of ABC using a -- them or Ronald -- I mean they behave like lap dogs you get treated like.
Lap dogs and a -- -- -- thoughtful and well I think it's -- their fault but also I think there's a lot of pressure from their news organizations.
To get the background interview -- are very few of them in this administration.
And that's really damaging when you're trying to get inside a story a decision and understand how a very sensitive decision was made.
You need to talk to them -- pay freeze you out at one point.
They White House even would not give fox interview and news and at any background is on the ungodly they took them off the list I -- -- these guys playing hard ball and now the press is beginning to -- It's a -- relationship -- -- because you're if you're that you want to get the information you need.
Admitted to administration officials take kind of light Hugh.
But at the same time you what you should -- As a reporter in any organization or so covering any organization any administration think you have to be a little bit of a -- everything about the relationship of the press.
With the present United States started to change with Richard Nixon who and has been changing ever since but I mean EEE didn't.
This seat that you get to sit and you know on a plane and with the president who gets to be in the seats I think presidents have always.
And gradually more and more and more so orchestrated who gets to sit where it gets to ask -- And yet you know on the press complaints about that's what we hear about it my I -- -- -- -- -- is that there really isn't much new here except as Judy points I -- It's the it's a lot of the reporters -- For one of the better expiration progression really loved the Obama administration suddenly saying wait -- -- Yeah I guess that there was more outrage about that -- Not being able to -- -- -- -- -- against Tiger Woods yeah -- there was about.
Shutting down having got it did send a little silly -- -- home I mean this old -- seem to come to the full because of -- golf game.
-- really it really did and if you look at the way now these pool reports are done where one reporter is chosen from the press pool of the White House.
And they get to accompanied the president to chosen moments.
Not entire game just the first round of golf -- laughs it happened but that you don't -- sets the rules.
And they lap it up and they file very dutifully these blow by blow -- swing by swing it cameras.
On what the president has done -- -- They color of the card what you don't know is what's going on in the background knowing what I he's not calling the secretary of state or defense to find out.
How are our people over and gotten -- -- that's not a story as far as the media is concerned and I'm really disheartening.
Wanna love you was right seen here isn't anyone -- says I hope the mainstream media keep the pressure up on the president.
Because I really want to know if he beat tiger or not yeah well I -- I believe -- played with tiger.
Said that they want that full -- -- -- -- John I don't know.
I'm not doing Judy Miller thank you very much it's and it's a very interesting at 7 o'clock legacy was always Erekat gave -- associate publisher of social media.
Max we're watching Jon Scott now -- him instead on folks he's looked.
