The Transparency of US Government Obama Promised Is Out: Less Access Than Ever for Press Photographers Seeking to Cover Obama White House

When Barack Obama was running for president in 2008 once of the HUGE promises he made to the nation was a new level of “transparency” in government. Just the opposite has happened since then. When CNN begins to whine this loudly, you KNOW that something has clamped shut for good. Have a listen. In any other society this action would be labeled as censorship. The phrase that CNN did employ to describe what’s happening is: “they are banning the free press from covering the Obama White House.”

That’s just another way of calling censorship what it is: suppression of the free press, and strict over-control of the message [ in media and photos ] which comes out of the White House. I see this as another ominous development in the Obama presidency.
