TRANSPARENCY: White House claims ban on news photographers is actually a transparency win

“Journalists are routinely being denied the right to photograph or videotape the President while he is performing his official duties,” the journalists said in a letter to White House press secretary Jay Carney. “As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens, officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the Executive Branch of government.”

It’s not a good sign when you have an administration who does not wish media attention from the very media who got him elected, twice. Add this to Reid invoking the Nuclear Option which is likely to boomerang in 2014 and something is definitely wrong. Very wrong.

Link to the letter from the media is at the bottom of the article. Read it.
