Later in the day it was reported that writers for the Huffington Post, the Washington Post, and the Daily Kos were also included in the meeting.
Isn’t that so kind from President who hates holding press conferences; to just hold a private press conference instead? With influential members of the liberal media, at that? But don’t worry folks, MSNBC et al are totally objective news outlets. Completely.
A private press conference seems to negate the whole point of the “freedom of the press”, thus negating their reliability to be objective. It is official – our press is no longer free. They have willingly muzzled themselves at the expense of their duty to the American people.
