White House shutting down transparency

New mandates from the White House are being put in place to deny access to many things the President saw as “transparency” just 10 months ago. Just a few weeks ago the White House has denied access to the White House itself, by denying interviews with anyone of power to Fox News.

The White House has started an attack on the one station that actually shows BOTH sides of the issues, and has lauded networks such as, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and laughably MSNBC as REAL news stations. It seems that President has once again offered up three sacrificial cows, Axelrod, Emanuel, and Dunn, to be the ones who vilify one station, and one station alone. We understand you don’t like Glenn Beck Mr. President, but to make a blanket claim that Fox News isn’t a real new network is laughable. You vilify Beck, Hannity and O’Reilly, and yet approve of Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Rachel Maddow? You are joking right? Say what you really mean, the White House doesn't approve of the views of SOME of Fox News's roundup, so you denounce them all. Even I don't like all the people on Fox News, in fact maybe as high as 40%, but they do offer both views..........something the stations you like don't do!

News reporters over the weekend have now been denied access to all detainees in overseas detention centers. In an effort to control the media as a whole, the White House has gradually reduced access of government since the inauguration. Mrs. Dunn, your own communications director has bragged about controlling the media. Even C-Span televised meetings are being limited. The Healthcare Reform’s meeting of six is behind closed doors. The Senate voted down a mandate to make the Healthcare Reform available to the public for 72 hours before the final vote…………Where is this transparency Mr. Obama?

Senator Obama pledged to put the healthcare debate on C-span - working with insurance executives, physicians, and legislators - all around a big round table ...

No, healthcare reform is being pasted together into a bill behind Harry Reid's closed doors. There IS no transparency.

The link I supplied about the 7 lies in two minutes does have one incorrect part, about what Justice Brandeis said, but other than that very accurate.
