• Obama Administration in Bed with the Media, Literally

    With just around three months to go until Election Day, it's more important than ever for the Obama administration to keep the press on their side so as to hold back the torrent of bad economical news that is ever-waiting to wash destructively over the White House. There's lots of ways they can accomplish this: They can try to win them over with charm, they can offer them tips and exclusive info, or they can simply get cozy with them outside from the press room.

    Though, this seems a tad excessive

    A deputy press secretary for Barack Obama's reelection campaign married an ABC reporter over the weekend. The ABC reporter, Matthew Jaffe, "covering the 2012 presidential campaign," according to his biography on the website of ABC News…

    The deputy press secretary Jaffe married is Katie Hogan. Many members of Obama's reelection team and the press celebrated the wedding together Saturday.

    This is a mistake! The media is too young, has too much of its life ahead of it to be settling for one presidential administration now! It needs to go out and see other administrations! What we need to do is grab the media, throw it into the trunk of our car and drive it down to Mexico for one wild weekend of reporting on foreign administrations! Whattaya say?! Let's do it!
