From the above cited report
" The Obama administration has notably used social media, videos, and its own sophisticated websites to provide the public with administration-generated information about its activities, along with considerable government data useful for consumers and businesses….
Instead of providing greater access for reporting by knowledgeable members of the press, Compton noted, the Obama White House produces its own short newscast,“West Wing Week,” which it posts on the White House website.“It’s five minutes of their own video and sound from events the press didn’t even know about,” she said.
“When you call the White House press office to ask a question or seek information, they refer us to White House websites,” said Chris Schlemon, Washington producer for Britain’s Channel 4 television news network.“We have to use White House website content, White House videos of the president’s interviews with local television stations and White House photographs of the president.”
The Obama administration is using social media “to end run the news media completely,” Sesno at George Washington University told me.“Open dialogue with the public without filters is good, but if used for propaganda and to avoid contact with journalists, it’s a slippery slope.”

So when Progressives come in here with TPM,MMfA, OFA, Think Progress, etc all you are providing is the White House spin.
you might want to try to make a connection between social media and the sites you mention. or a connection between them and the WH. this is not FOX News.

"For the first time in its 32-year history, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has published a report investigating press freedom in the United States. Published Thursday, the report follows an unprecedented number of prosecutions of government sources and seizures of journalists' records under the Obama administration that many contend have curtailed press freedom and government transparency."

Read this report from Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh. It's on the same subject of "journalism" in the U.S..

Obama is fortunate Hersh isn't focused on him.

Eye opening to say the least.

What difference does it make?

Once you slip below 40% in approval ratings (Dems in low 30%) what you are doing is widely unpopular.

If the federal government had managed Social Security and kept it solvent, there wouldn't be the need for reforms.
But only republicans are demanding reforms. Even though democrats know it won't be solvent much longer.
Can you explain that?
Here's how I see it:

If you don't accept biology, geology or archeology you don't accept science. Its an all or nothing proposition. Therefore, you need to eschew cable TV, the internet, antibiotics, and defibrillators.

Now go die you moronic evangelical "christians" and get the fck out of MY government!

I wonder if there will be a Dem party.

I wonder if there will be any parties.

I wonder if the country totally implodes and the constitution is voided and the USA is no more.

Oh, I have no doubt that they will claim that the Chief Economist at the International Energy Agency doesn't know what he's talking about. They'll stand their ground by claiming there is "no such thing as an oil subsidy". Cretins.(Leo...I know, I know..I ended a sentence with a preposition ;0)
